  • Ingrid Laubrock's Anti-House 4 at Cafe Oto

  • Tuesday 8 May 2018, 7.30pm, Cafe Oto, London.

    Ingrid Laubrock's Anti-House 4 consists of New York City-based musicians who have all made a huge impact as composers, performers and improvisers in their own right. It’s a cast of innovative performers who are specialized in experimental music and constantly look for fresh avenues to create truly new music.

    The group's quicksilver-like and imaginative blend of strong individual voices with Laubrock's compositions makes for a thrilling listening experience. The compositions straddle the boundaries of improvisation, new music and avant- jazz. Between them, the musicians have performed with Anthony Braxton, Jason Moran, Craig Taborn, Tim Berne, Bill Frisell, Paul Motian and many others.

  • Chloe Lamford at Unicorn Theatre

  • 'Beginners', 20 Mar - 15 Apr 2018
    Unicorn Theatre, London.

    Beginners tells the story of three families trapped in a waterlogged holiday cottage over summer. The children are bored. The adults are down the pub. So far so normal.

    Renowned, award-winning writer and director Tim Crouch (National Theatre, Royal Court, Unicorn) presents this joyous and imaginative new play for families everywhere. Beginners is an exquisite, funny and moving story that reminds us that the adult we’ll become - and the child we were - stay with us wherever we go.

    Chloe Lamford and Camilla Clarke strike with a set design which perfectly encapsulates both the cramped space of their holiday bedroom and the vastness of their imaginative play world. What is originally a simple set of fours beds positioned in a square is transformed into a forest of flowers, as the children put on a play for the only adult who seemingly cares enough to watch.

  • New book "Break.up" by Joanna Walsh

  • The internet has collapsed the boundaries of time, space, and desire. However far apart lovers are, they can instantly be present. So can they ever really break up?

    This is the question Walsh's narrator must reckon with as she travels across Europe after the end of a love affair conducted largely online. This pilgrimage through 'offline' space dictated by chance - on railways, on buses, on planes and, above all, on foot - wrestles with the dangers of converting longing into language, and reclaims and reshapes the territory of the male travel writer by creating personal and innovative maps of cities by which Walsh navigates the complexities of modern love.
