What’s on > June

Hailed as ‘a fascinating story’, ‘a wonderful performance’ and ‘a tour de force’, Rose continues on our stage until Sat 10 Jun. From Wed 7 Jun, you’re invited to go undercover for one night with Operation Black Antler, the immersive theatre piece exploring moral corruption and state surveillance in secret locations across the city.

On our screens this month, Daughters of the Dust is the tale of a large African-American family preparing to move north in the early 1900s; charming animation My Life as a Courgette follows a young boy adjusting to life in a children’s home; documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me explores the tragic downfall of a great artist; Edith Walks sees artist filmmaker Andrew Kötting explore the life of Edith Swan Neck; and brilliant Swedish-language A Man Called Ove follows a cantankerous older man whose life is upended by the arrival of a young family on his quiet street.

Partition marks the 70th anniversary of the Partition of India with a weekend of films and events designed to enhance understanding of this momentous historical event, its meanings and its legacies, 70 years later.

Finally, group exhibition La Movida continues in our gallery this month, with 16 artists including Linder and Derek Jarman presenting work themed around freedom, excess, clubbing, drugs, gay rights and pornography.
