What's on in Kent & Sussex:

The Open Air Drawing-Room

Eric MacLennan: The Open Air Drawing-Room

The Open Air Drawing-Room begins with an antiquated artists drawing group setting up for some landscape painting. Arrival and un-packing of folding stools, easels, flasks, other knick-knacks and sandwiches etc But this is no ordinary show - for the audience will be drawn into the group! Inspired by JMW Turner. A story that delightfully mixes historical biography with the fast contemporary world we now occupy. An invitation to slow-down. Paint a stone - for Turner - for The Turner Contemporary! Selected from 31 stones - a mini museum- each one from the coast of the British isles and named after the atmospheric areas of the shipping forecast . These stones were old when Turner was young. They will still be here when we are gone. We consider Time. We consider Art. Each artist (audience member) also makes a Cyanotype portrait which will be exhibited as a mirror image to the final painting - A Sea of Faces - embracing Turner’s pioneering interest in photography and his desire to find new ways.

Essex Girl

Maria Ferguson: Essex Girl

Kirsty is a sixteen-year-old girl growing up in 00s Brentwood. She likes WKD, Elton John, Pie and Mash and Charlie Red body spray. She's on a quest to win Sexy Ricky's heart and pass her GCSEs. She also has a secret to tell you. One she can't tell anyone else. Follow Kirsty's story through the house parties and Irish pubs of Essex. From West Ham matches to choir practice, pre-drinks to registration, she will tell you what it's really like to be an Essex Girl. Essex Girl is the second show from award-winning theatre maker and real-life Essex Girl, Maria Ferguson (Fat Girls Don’t Dance). This show is a monologue about growing up surrounded by expectation, of inappropriate relationships, female friendship, secrets, desires and alcopops. It questions how the Essex Girl stereotype influences young girls, what they want, what they think they deserve, and how they are treated. Wonderfully funny and ultimately hard-hitting it will resonate with a wide audience, particularly millenials, or anyone who has got too drunk at a house party.
