Packed with performance at university

October 24, 2013


THE Performance Centre, Falmouth University, started the autumn season on a musical high with two packed-out music nights thanks to former Falmouth student band The Klezbians and Bob Dylan's stadium support band The Wiyos.

Over the next two months The Performance Centre offers a rich public performance programme of shows across music, dance and theatre. There will also be workshops, event management courses, Amnesty International evenings, free performing arts networking evenings and music Industry seminars and showcases. Highlights of the programme include Forced Entertainment, the Sheffield-based theatre company described as Britain's most brilliant experimental theatre company by The Guardian. They will be showing Tomorrow's Parties on Thursday, November 14, where two characters explore utopian and dystopian visions of the future.

Internationally acclaimed contemporary dance innovators Shobana Jeyasingh Dance return to Falmouth on Wednesday, November 27 with a UK preview of Strange Blooms And Configurations - expect some classical Indian dance accompanied by Michael Nyman's acclaimed score String Quartet No 2. The Performance Centre continues to work alongside Amnesty International every month to raise awareness about performance-related political issues around the world. On Friday, November 21, Natalia Kaliada and Nickolai Khalezin, the founding members of Belarus Free Theatre, will be guest speakers at the Amnesty Evening, 5.30pm in the Performance Centre Cafe.
