The image is of a leaflet or webpage used to promote an arts event entitled “Of All The People In All The World’.  There is a photograph of a large, well-lit room in which around 50 people are wandering around looking at piles of rice on the floor. The piles of rice are of different sizes. Each one sits on a piece of paper.  The accompanying text says:  Of All The People In All The World uses grains of rice to bring formally abstract statistics to startling and powerful life.  Each grain of rice = one person and you are invited to compare the one grain that is you to the millions that are not. Over a period of days a team of performers carefully weigh out quantities of rice to represent a host of human statistics  - the populations of towns and cities - the number of doctors, the number of soldiers - the number of people born each day, the number who die - all the people who have walked on the moon - deaths in the holocaust The statistics are arranged in labelled piles creating an ever changing landscape of rice. The statistics and their juxtapositions can be moving, shocking, celebratory, witty and thought provoking.The image is of a leaflet or webpage used to promote an arts event entitled “Air and La Grande Phrase” by Compagnie Didier Theron. There is a photograph of four men dancing on an outdoor stage surrounded by a large crowd. They are wearing costumes that are entirely bubble-gum pink, and the trousers and bottom half of the top are somehow inflated to a comical amount. The accompanying text says: Funny and original, AIR features four dancers dressed in inflatable latex suits which transform and magnify their movements. Intricate and precise choreography is given a new energy and dynamic by the element of weightlessness, as the latex structures respond to the movements within them. The air creates a new link between the dancer, space, the audience and the public space they animate.The image is of a leaflet or webpage used to promote an arts event entitled “Nonclassical // curated by Tom Richards”. Tue 31 Jul 8pm There is a photograph of a leaning over a table which is covered in electronics. He is wearing headphones and appears to be DJing on stage, as he is surrounded by speakers and illuminated by spotlights. The photo does not show his face.  The text says:  To mark the release of his LP PINK NOTHING on nonclassical, sound artist and analogue tinkerer Tom Richards curates an evening of sonic oddities at The Victoria. From behind his idiosyncratic modular system, Richards creates mesmerising, immersive and heavily textured polyrhythmic improvisations. They’re cerebral but groovy – sonic art that’s almost danceable. Joining him, there'll be dreamlike theremin and musical machinery from Sarah Angliss and guest singer Sarah Gabriel, as they perform a new piece using the 'Mini Oramics' synth – an instrument first conceived by electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram and finally built by Tom Richards himself. Also appearing is sound and video artist Steph Horak, who performs a type of improvised vocal-driven drone poetry – somewhere between experimental electronica, traditional songwriting and conceptual art.  In between performances, Graham Dunning will be DJing, playing music that explores rhythm, drone, texture and timbre. Happy Hour is from 5-8pm – come down early for a beer and a burger before the show. Doors open 8pm, with live music from 8:30pm The Victoria, Dalston (E8 3AS) £5 (student), £8 (advance), £10 (on the door)The image is of a leaflet or webpage used to promote an arts event entitled “Film Screening and Conversation” by Bidisha and Taban Yasin Othman.

The text says: 7 PERFORMERS, 68 CHARACTERS, 70 MIINUTES, 6 WORDS, 10 TONS OF KIT, A SET 2M WIDE AND 14M DEEP, 50 AUDIENCE MEMBERS… …WILL YOU BE ONE OF THEM? There is a photograph of a woman standing in a narrow and dimly-lit corridor. She looks at the camera with a pained expression. Around her in the corridor are piles of shredded paper, and a man in the background is kneeling down looking at a book or report.   The accompanying text says:  The Cleansing Of Constance Brown was conceived whilst performing It's Your Film across Europe. It imagines that show grown up and expanded, the content changed but the ethos remaining.  The themes are power, the power of people who inhabit the rooms opening off this corridor, and cleansing, the cleansing of a woman, Constance Brown, who appears to have lived in all ages, both here and around the globe.  Each scene and character is presented in highly realised visual detailing of costumes props and acting. The corridor itself with its shifting configuration becomes the 73rd character, blank, often menacing and unpredictable. Scenes intercut and morph into one each other making connections across time and space.  The show is uninhibited, a tour de force and we are very proud of it.
