MATTHEW STONE PRESENTS ‘HARD FUTURE’ - FRIDAY 21 MAY
The Theo Adams Company,
Chris Flatline (ENDURANCE),
& Matthew Stone
HARD FUTURE is a curated evening of collaborative performance, projections, and classical/electronic body music.
Alex Nikiporenko & Matthew Stone will be presenting a collaborative musical performance. Born and raised in Moscow, Nikiporenko began composing at the age of 7, realising his true passion while studying at Moscow Conservatory’s Junior Department, moving to England at 13, reaching high acclaim as BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the Year in 2008, and last year held the position of Creative in Residence of The Hospital Club in London.
Theo Adams / The Theo Adams Company will present new work stemming from his large-scale multi-disciplinary theatrical production “CRY OUT”, which recently premiered in Tokyo, including visuals and projections directed by Matthew Stone. A self-taught, 20 year old director, performer and visionary, Adams recently featured in an epic portfolio shot by David Sims for W Magazine, which said: “Theo Adams and his posse of dancers, musicians and muses has taken London’s avant-garde by storm.”
Pandora’s Jukebox is Yasmina Dexter who will present an exclusive DJ set. Originally from Slovenia, this striking, London based polymath is known for her sexy and distinctive DJ sets, intricate catwalk soundscapes for designers such as Preen and Christopher Kane, and her iconic style, a muse to shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood. Pandora’s Jukebox crafts her mixes for the catwalk and the dancefloor, hovering somewhere between the seedy sensuality of a Soho strip show and the masked ball scene in ‘Eyes Wide Shut’.
ENDURANCE is the brainchild of producer and DJ Chris Flatline. ENDURANCE will be providing an expert selection of Electronic Body Music, New Beat and Aggrepo for the latter half of the night. Chris Flatline will be joined by his resident DJ’s Pony-Girl & LVR. Endurance has fast become London’s most interesting new club night. Compared by Vice’s Online Fashion Editor Daryoush Haj-Najafi to an early Nag Nag Nag, ENDURANCE rides the crest of the newest wave of cold, hard and industrial beats set to redefine London’s club-scene. ENDURANCE recently joined forces with London cult club-legends Cosey to host a room at the ICA.
With creative icon and inspiring thinker Brian Eno at the helm as Guest Artistic Director, Brighton Festival 2010 has more than ever; 242 performances, 16 exclusives, 14 premieres, and 8 Brighton Festival commissions from internationally acclaimed artists visiting the UK for the first time, as well as Brighton-based artists making waves on the world scene. A highlight of the international cultural calendar, this year it boasts some serious style credentials with the crash-landing of HQ at Brighton Dome.
HQ at Brighton Dome comprises: a spectacular installation by Gary Card, a daytime canteen featuring a fresh and seasonal menu by Bistrotheque, and a programme of performance, that could coerce you to rent a beach house.
