The God Squad Comedy Show

Social_template_god_squad

By Nour Al Kawaja

The God Squad Comedic-Physical Theatre show embodies the role of the fool to personify man’s idiocy and satirize extremist thought that divides people and communities. Regardless of our race, colour, religious, cultural and social backgrounds we must learn to realize we are all equally entitled to live our life as we please. Without imposing our personal point of views on others. A comedy show dedicated to making mankind see we are all simply mirrors of one another. The God squad takes us on a journey inside the human mind, exploring the questions regarding human consciousness. An exploration and satirization of the battles of points of view between science, philosophy and the various religions, through larger than life characters. 

Conflict Relief’s work stems from a commitment to expose the absurdity of conflict and reveal the human stories beneath the blinding fear and hatred. The group comprises of artists from conflicting backgrounds dedicated to generating original content based on the conflicts shared between them. ‘We are committed to breaking down misconceptions and stereotypes. We strife to bridge the gap between divided communities by using comedy as a vehicle to tackle conflict.’ 

The company uses comedy and physical theatre as their base for creating content focused on tackling issues of arising from religious, cultural, racial and social disputes. Through their shared experiences of conflict they have learned that when they listen to each other’s stories, they develop an understanding and empathy, which is the first step to enabling honest dialogue. 

‘The team jumps in with both feet where others fear to tread, forcing us to look at our prejudices through humour.’
Camden New Journal

‘Conflict Relief slays stereotypes and skewers both sides with wit and absurdity’
Jerusalem Report

‘It’s informed stuff from this ensemble of Arab, Israeli and British-born Jewish and Muslim performers, who all do justice to their skilful acting and physical theatre credentials’
Evening Standard

These Days presents – An evening with Kevin Hewick and friends

Social_template_thesedays

Kevin Hewick has spent a lifetime in music.

In 1979, a demo tape sent to Factory Records impressed Tony Wilson sufficiently to offer Hewick the chance to record for the label. Newly added to the Factory roster, Hewick had a recording session in June 1980 with producer Martin Hannett in Graveyard Studios, where he recorded two tracks (“Haystack”, released on From Brussels with Love compilation in 1981, and “A Piece of Fate”) with the three surviving members of Joy Division, a month after the death of Ian Curtis and just prior to their adopting the name New Order.

Other Factory releases included the controversial live side of the A Factory Quartet double album (FACT 24) in 1981—live tracks chosen against Hewick’s wishes by Wilson, that featured a confrontation between Hewick and a very aggressive audience—and the single “Ophelia’s Drinking Song” (FAC 48), which featured producer Donald Johnson of A Certain Ratio on percussion and was mixed by Peter Hook of New Order.

Hewick signed to Cherry Red Records in 1983, and released the album Such Hunger for Love, the single “Feathering the Nest”, and This Cover Keeps Reality Unreal, a four-track 12″ EP recorded in collaboration with The Sound. These and various items from Hewick’s time on Factory were later reissued by Cherry Red in 2003 as the Tender Bruises and Scars compilation CD

Hewick’s support slots over the years have included Roy Harper, the Fall, Joy Division, Showaddywaddy, Durutti Column, New Order, Section 25, PJ Harvey, Martin Carthy, Kevin Coyne, Fairport Convention, Lene Lovich and Jackie Leven.

Hewick’ resurgence as a prolific songwriter and performer as evidenced by his recent albums, 2012’s Factory themed  ‘All Was Numbered’ (with liner notes by Paul Morley),’The Heat Of Molten Diamonds’ (2013)  and ‘Touching Stones Tasting Rain’ (2016). This event launches Kevin’s new 70 minute+ 2017 epic ‘Driven By Love, Driven By Hate’ Themes of love, loss, politics, community and self discovery born of years of experience and the lessons that life never stops teaching us.

At 60 the voice is still powerful and nuanced, the lyrics full of insights and original thought, the melodies and arrangements rich and varied.

Kevin will be performing music from his career and forthcoming album ‘Driven By Love, Driven By Hate’

With support from CRAYON ANGELS and a discussion with filmmaker and guitarist Jude Rawlings (Lene Lovitch band, Sunterraneans).

Social_owl.jpg

Watch out! I am HOOT OWL. I am hungry. And here I come! 

Hoot Owl is no ordinary owl –  He’s a Master of Disguise! And he plans to use his cunning camouflage powers to gobble up the tiny animals of the night. Trouble is, Hoot Owl’s prey keep escaping! Is Hoot Owl as masterful as he thinks he is? Will he become a member of the Owl Parliament? And will he EVER succeed in catching himself some dinner?

Original songs, colourful puppets, animation, hilarity, ridiculousness and rapid costume changes abound in this wildly inventive new show from Proon Productions, based on the ‘Laugh Out Loud Book Award’-shortlisted picture book by Sean Taylor, with sets faithful to Jean Jullien’s visually creative illustrations.

Stow Film Lounge presents THE RED TURTLE (Michael Dudok de Wit, 2017, Cert PG)

Stow Film Lounge presents THE RED TURTLE (Michael Dudok de Wit, 2017, Cert PG)

Our Kids’ Film Lounge screenings return! This time at a new venue in central Walthamstow – Centre17. We are very excited to be re-launching our “organized chaos” in a perfect new space. As always we like to bring you the best of children’s world cinema and what better than another Studio Ghibli delight.

The Red Turtle is the tale of a man who is stranded on a desert island during a storm. His desperate attempts to escape, by lashing together bamboo canes to form a raft, are repeatedly thwarted by some unseen undersea force that shatters his vessel. On his third attempt, the man comes face to face with his saboteur, a giant red turtle who in turn recounts the milestones in the life of a human being.

This film adds to Studio Ghibli’s estimable legacy with a beautifully animated effort whose deceptively simple story boasts narrative layers as richly absorbing as its sumptuous visuals, and replacing dialogue with a soaring soundtrack.

Doors open 10.30am, Crafts, Film 11am, Close 1pm

Tickets: £5.50 (inc crafts) child, £12 party package (per child), £4 acc adult, under 2s free

Stow Film Lounge presents SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (P. Pearce, L. Morey, W. Cottrell, W. Jackson & B. Sharpsteen, 1937, Cert U)

Our Kids’ Film Lounge screenings return! This time at a new venue in central Walthamstow – Centre17. We are very excited to be re-launching our “organized chaos” in a perfect new space. As a little pre-Christmas treat we thought we would go old skool with a Disney classic which set the benchmark by which all future animations have been judged.

Snow White, pursued by a jealous Queen, hides with the Dwarfs; the Queen soon learns of this and prepares to feed her a poison apple.

The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney’s first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
