The long, hard slog of winter is nearly over, and we’ve got some of the most innovative art, film and theatre around to help get you through to spring!
In the main gallery we welcome Noor Afshan Mirza and Brad Butler’s first major UK exhibition, The Scar. This film installation weaves together conspiracy, gangster, noir, politics, fantasy and reality in an intriguing and captivating comment on inequality, state enforced violence and the patriarchy. Jez Dolan’s Anders Als Die Andern continues in the Granada Foundation Galleries.
In our theatres, Actors Touring Company & Orange Tree Theatre bring Winter Solstice, a razor-sharp comedy about the rise of the new right across the world; and The Bare Project are here with On The Outskirts of a Large Event, part dystopian poem-play, part sci-fi spectacle.
We’re hosting a celebration of Chinese film in February, with a selection of the best recent Chinese language cinema to welcome in the Year of the Dog, and Volume 1 of NOW: Moving Image by Chinese Contemporary Female Artists.
