Bush Theatre

This Week 9th-15th November

9 November 2015 Ryan Ormonde

Culture has several meanings, especially in London. It is cultural to listen to experimental radio art, it is cultural to go to the theatre to see new writing. Culture can reflect different sexual identities and it can be an evolution from ritual, tribal practice. Sometimes culture is just a really good art exhibition. Here are five cultural ideas for this week.

Resonance FM: In the Dark at The Social

A London-based independent radio station dedicated to the arts, Resonance 104.4FM returns to The Social just off Oxford Street tonight for In the Dark. Experimental rarities will be released from the station’s archive and there will be a DJ set from Robin the Frog. Resonance’s Ed Baxter has written and composed a radio art performance especially for the event, to be performed live by radiophonic art purveyors Resonance Radio Orchestra.

RADAR 2015: Bush Theatre’s festival of new writing

An intriguing dramatic proposition features as part of RADAR 2015, the Bush Theatre’s Festival of New Writing, which begins this week. Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour is presenting a one-person show delivered to the actor in a sealed envelope on the night. Three different actors will take on the mysterious role in Blank, which is showing for three nights this week. This week, writer-performer Arinze Kene takes us through the dark recesses of East London for Misty, Simon Mole and Peader Kirk present an oddball road trip across the UK in No More Worries and Christopher Brett Bailey tells tales of ‘paranoia, young love and ultra-violence’ in This Is How We Die.

GFEST - Gaywise FESTival

For the 8th GFEST, organisers respond to the contradictory global situation facing LGBTQI people with the theme ‘(Complacent Present)...Fragile Future?’ The alternative queer festival launches today with an exhibition in the Menier Gallery challenging perceptions around LGBTQI and Asian identities, featuring poetic sculptures by interactive artist Maya Chowdhry in collaboration with poet Sarah Hymas. Next week there will be films, classical music, debates and a queer eye tour of the Tate Modern.

Indian Warli Painting at V&A Museum of Childhood

A Western Indian tribal art form is the subject of The Tales We Tell, a new exhibition opening at the V&A Museum of Childhood this Saturday. Warli painting evolved from restricted ritual drawings into a creative practice unto itself. Artists Jive Some Mashe and Ramesh Hengadi have developed the form into a new iconography that responds to aspects of a changing India. Artist Johnny Magee has been commissioned to make a film exploring Mashe’s influences and work.

Susan Hiller at Lisson Gallery

From this Friday, both of Lisson Gallery’s exhibition spaces will be taken over by the works of Susan Hiller. Hiller’s first solo exhibition in London since her Tate retrospective of 2011 will be loosely grouped into four themes: ‘collecting and curating’, ‘transformation’, ‘the unconscious’ and ‘belief systems’. Hiller is a magpie artist who brings together a wide range of techniques and materials, often using found objects and photographs, text and sophisticated technology.
