Shooting with Light

It is 1933 and a young German refugee flees to Paris, reinventing herself as Gerda Taro. Discovering the wonder of photography, she falls in love with a fellow refugee who teaches her, ‘if your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough’. Together they venture to the Spanish Civil War and capture the tyranny of fascism. As pioneers of frontline photo journalism, he would go on to receive international recognition as the iconic war photographer Robert Capa – she would be forgotten.

Using innovative staging, physicality and multimedia, internationally renowned company Idle Motion piece together the life of an exceptional woman, glimpsed through the lost photographs she risked her life to take.

Written by Lyndsay Maples

The Courtyards pantomime is back with a “Beast” of a show!

Beauty’s family have fallen on hard times and when her father hears a chance to regain some of his fortune, he sets off on a long journey. On his way home, empty-handed and without gifts he promised, he gets lost in the forest and takes refuge in a mysterious castle. As he is leaving in the morning, he sees a beautiful rose and picks it to take home. Little does he know that the master of the house, a fearsome beast has decreed the penalty of picking the roses is death. The beast promises to spare the fathers life if his beautiful daughter comes to live with him at the castle. But what will happen to Beauty and will she ever find true love? Continue reading

Jack and Jill and The Red Post Box @ The Courtyard Theatre 10/09/2015

Jack and Jill and the Red Postbox is a sensitive, humorous and challenging performance which encourages us to think about how we live and work alongside those in our communities who have a diagnosis of dementia. Using nursery rhymes, live and recorded sound/music and images, the performance invites us to follow the journeys of Jack and Jill and those who live among them, as they encounter considerable changes in their everyday life events.

This fictionalised performance has been inspired by 89 anonymous transcripts, collected in a research project in Northumberland: the ‘Risk and Resilience: living with dementia’ project. The stories are based upon ‘common’ themes which help us to explore questions involving changes in identity, sense of place and roles within community and society.

ticket price- Adult £14, concession £13

ROH Live: La Fille Mal Gardee- The Blake Theatre, Monmouth. 5th May 2015

Venue: The Blake Theatre, Monmouth

Dates: 05/05/2015 to 05/05/2015


 Frederick Ashton’s final full-length ballet is one of his most joyous creations, inspired by his love for the Suffolk countryside. It is based on an 1828 French ballet and the music was adapted by John Lanchbery from Ferdinand Hérold’s original score. La Fille mal gardée was a resounding success on its premiere in 1960 and has remained a firm favourite in The Royal Ballet’s repertory. The title translates as ‘The Wayward Daughter’. La Fille displays some of Ashton’s most virtuosic choreography – the youthful passion of Lise and her lover, Colas, is expressed in a series of energetic pas de deux. The ballet is laced with good humour and a whirl of dancing chickens, grouchy guardians and halfwit suitors take to the stage. Ashton affectionately incorporated elements of national folk dance into his choreography, from a Lancashire clog dance to a maypole dance, making La Fille mal gardée (despite its title) The Royal Ballet’s most emphatically English work. Osbert Lancaster’s colourful designs reinforce the robust wit of the production. Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

Choreography Frederick Ashton Conductor Barry Wordsworth

Running time: . 2 hours 15 minutes (including 1 interval)
