Sefiroth Matinee

February 17 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
£8 - £10

Sefiroth is an international collective of musicians founded by brothers Nick and Alex Roth to explore traditional Sephardic repertoire. They keep the spirit of the traditions alive yet do something totally different at the same time - Fiona Talkington, Late Junction, BBC Radio 3. Sung in Ladino, these ancient songs weave timeless stories of love, loss and yearning for home, evoking the lands where the Sephardic diaspora settled: Iberia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. The group’s arrangements are as porous and wide-ranging as the history of the Sephardim, combining acoustic and electric instruments, improvisation, modern harmonies and trance-inducing rhythms. Essential listening for anyone attending our project A Vanished Kingdom: Alex Roth will be joining us on the final Saturday as we share our imaginary borderland.

A magical, intimate show for all ages from La Soupe. Part Kamishabaï (Japanese paper theatre), part pop-up storybook, Macao et Cosmage is a journey into the world of French illustrator Edy Legrand. Macao and Cosmage live happily together in a tropical island paradise until the day that civilisation comes sailing up to their shore. A simple story about the effects of colonialism and the borders between mainland France and its Outre-Mer départements. Each audience member is given their own set of headphones with which to follow the action, as the puppeteer transports you from the rainy streets of London to a lush tropical island. La Soupe’s miniature puppet booth is suitable for an audience of 12 people at a time, so please book early. Performances are in English.

£13 - £15

Fin de siècle Brighton. A young woman washed up on the beach is forced to revisit, time and again, her tragic history. Adult puppetry, poetry and drone noise in La Soupe’s Evocation, an experience that Edinburgh’s The Student described as truly life changing. In collaboration with poet Mick Wood and electro-acoustic composer Antoine Arlot, Alsace’s La Soupe have revisited the Pierrot Lunaire poems of Albert Giraud, creating from them a piece that takes an unflinching look at the cultural borders between the UK and continental Europe. New English translations from the original French, a powerhouse performance from Audrey L’Ebrellec, and sumptuous symbolist imagery bring out all the eroticism, savagery and playfulness of Giraud’s extraordinarily influential cycle.

Suitable for 15 years and older.

£10 - £12

Norway’s KultNett bring together some of the foremost folk musicians and storytellers from beyond the Arctic Circle to examine the history of the peoples of Northern Norway, Sweden, Finland and Sápmi, the land of the Sámi people. Storytelling, a fast and furious fiddle and the traditional ‘joik’ of the Sámi are interwoven to create a performance that explores and interrogates the dynamics of cultural and ethnic hegemony in the Nordic region of Europe. Adapted especially for Marchland and illustrated by a multi-media presentation, this is a truly immersive experience; a rare insight into a rich and vibrant borderland culture from the Northernmost reaches of Europe.
