SHAPE at 7.30pm – with Lucia Udvardyova

May 26th, 2015 · No Comments

SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art & Performance in Europe) is a platform established in 2014 by 16 European festivals with support of EU’s Creative Europe programme to promote up-and-coming musicians and innovative audiovisual artists at their respective events. In tonight’s episode Lucia Udvardyova interviews Jeanne-Sophie Fort, one of the organizers of the Les Siestes Electroniques festival, as well as SHAPE artists Martins Rokis, Aisha Devi, Yro and Księżyc.
Sound artist Martins Rokis from Riga has been experimenting with electronic music since the late 1990s, and N1L is his side-project, exploring various templates of electronic club music cultures in the broadest sense of the term. He will be performing live at Prague’s MeetFactory on 13 June. The sound of Polish group Księżyc captures early and late medieval music with a sound rooted in the Slavic tradition combined with elements of minimalism and vocal experiments of the 20th century. Rumour has it that they’ll play at the Toulouse edition of Les Siestes Electroniques. Aisha Devi’s music combines her Tibetan and Nepalese heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. She performs at the Paris edition of Les Siestes Electroniques. Yro is a multidisciplinary artist, living and working in Paris. He blends music & video in performances and installations in which new technologies and low-tech are coexisting. He, too, will be performing as part of a SHAPE showcase at MeetFactory on 13 June – the date of the Museum Night in Prague. [Repeated Thursday 8.30am.]

Out in South London at 6.30pm – with Qazi Rahman

May 26th, 2015 · No Comments

On Out in South London at 6.30pm Rosie Wilby talks to Qazi Rahman. He has published over 50 highly cited scientific articles on the biological basis of sexual orientation, gender nonconformity, and LGBT mental health and was co-author of the 2005 popular science book Born Gay. He is currently working on new research to address the crisis in mental health among LGBT people (who suffer twice the rates of poor mental health and suicide risk compared to heterosexual people).
The play Crouch, Touch, Pause, Engage by Robin Soans looks at the life of Welsh international rugby player Gareth Thomas, and the impact that coming out had on his family, career, and his hometown, Bridgend. Co-produced by Out of Joint, National Theatre Wales and the Arcola Theatre, it combines verbatim accounts from Gareth Thomas himself and residents of the South Wales town. It touches down at the Arcola for a month and James Waygood aka Grumpy Gay Critic will be giving us his thoughts.
DJ and writer Stewart Who reviews McQueen, written by James Phillips (The Rubenstein Kiss) and on at the St James Theatre until 27 June. This new play takes inspiration from the late fashion designer’s astounding runway shows and charts a fantastical night in London. It follows a girl who burgles McQueen’s home to steal a dress and is caught red handed by the designer himself. But instead of phoning the police, he gives her a chance and the two troubled souls go out into the city streets together.
Film critic, screenwriter and blogger Martha Margetson reviews Clouds of Sils Maria by Olivier Assayas, which stars Juliette Binoche as a stage actor at the peak of her international career and Kristen Stewart as her enigmatic assistant. Martha will explore the film’s queer element and discuss similarities with other works that feature women and comment on age, as well as discussing the trope of the obsessive assistant in cinematic history.
