Paul Gunn Company

The glitz of the Jazz Age combines with the buffoonery and wit of The Ealing Comedies.

With original comic and cool songs, razor sharp lyrics and virtuoso playing – expect Noel Coward meets the Bonzos.

‘The wordplay should appeal to anyone who's ever regarded Terry Thomas as a role model’ MOJO

The setlist includes classics such as Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue (Has anybody seen my girl?), Luck be a Lady and Angel Eyes.

Paul trained at the Paris studio of Philippe Gaulier and Monika Pagneux. He has toured throughout the UK, Germany, Spain, Canada and Hong Kong. He’ll be performing in Carmen at this year’s Glyndebourne Festival.

He is joined by three friends and accomplished musicians:

Leslee Booth (bass) has been a professional musician for thirty years, after studying at The Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. He worked on Gloria Gaynor’s number one hit I Will Survive and has lent support to some of the best American jazz names such as the legendary singer Billy Eckstine. He is an important member of the guitar based Branco Stoysin Trio, who perform regularly on the British jazz circuit scene. Leslee currently plays a six-string contra-bass.

David Rohoman (drums) was born in Guyana, South America. On moving to London he played in various rock bands where he was spotted by Ian Dury, who persuaded him to join The Kilburns. He has remained on the jazz circuit, performing with some of Britain’s finest musicians including Jim Mullen, Dave Newton, Django Bates and Mornington Locket.

Vladimir Miller (piano) has been awarded two British Council sponsored grants to work in Moscow and he Russian republic of Tuva. He helped form the Moscow Composers Orchestra, which he now directs. The orchestra has toured across Europe including Germany, Italy and Switzerland. They have performed at the Bolzano Jazz Festival in Italy, Vienna Russian Festival in Austria and Mimi Jazz Festival in France. Their concert at London’s South Bank was broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

WHY? ‘Vocalist Paul Gunn, a sort of continuation of Viv Stanshall by other means, crooned his way expertly with such wit, panache and musical expertise that the audience were baying for more’ Venue Magazine

Mindfulness

Led by Jane Barker.

Relaxed sessions that can be attended as often as you like to fit in with your schedule. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Stepping out of autopilot

Tuesday 3 February

If you look back over last year and most of it is a blur then perhaps it is time to give yourself permission to slow down and 'wake up' to the present moment. If you've forgotten how to be a human 'being', and are just a human 'doing' then come along for a chance to find some stillness and calm.

Dealing with stress

Tuesday 3 March

Stress is a natural physical response to dealing with events that make us feel threatened. Our body's defences kick in with a rapid, automatic 'fight or flight' response. We can't stop life's challenges, but we can learn to respond more effectively and this session will show you tools to help with that.

Self-kindness

Tuesday 7 April

'Be careful what you say to yourself, for you are listening.' For many of us having empathy for other people seems to be much easier and natural than having empathy for ourselves. In this session we will cover why this is and practice some simple exercises to help deal with self-criticism.

Julius Caesar

An encore screening from the Globe.

Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics still resonates even today.

When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed. In Rome this can mean only one thing - the great general must be assassinated. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar’s ghost be avenged?

This sell out production employed authentic Renaissance costumes and staging. Dominic Dromgoole's impassioned interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s classic plays showcased 'a rapport between the performers and the audience that feels genuinely magical' (Daily Telegraph).

Is anyone a freethinker?

Looking at Milgram, Mcluhan and experiments into the mind, Robin tries to work out if we can arm ourselves against mass media despots and live life pragmatically or will we always just be clumsy animals justifying each mistake with a well-honed alibi?

Well, it will be something like that - basically, another night of shouting, gesticulating, gurning and enquiring - a curious mind and id on the rampage.

WHY? Robin is a Sony Gold award winner, three times Chortle award winner and has received the Time Out outstanding achievement award

Glyndebourne: Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail

An encore screening of Mozart’s take on the glittering Orient - a stirring tale of abduction, escape and forgiveness.

Glyndebourne is the home of Mozart. This new production of Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) is often said to be the opera in which the 25 year old composer found his mature voice.
Both a popular comedy and a compassionate Enlightenment drama, it tells the story of one man's attempt to rescue his beloved from the harem of a Turkish despot and his fall to the mercy of his nemesis.
The opera's East/West clash and its surprising resolution defies all stereotypes and strikes a startlingly contemporary chord.

Synopsis - The young Spanish noblewoman Konstanze has been abducted by pirates together with her English maid Blonde, and Pedrillo, valet to her betrothed, Belmonte. Landing on the shores of Turkey, they have been sold as slaves to Pasha Selim. Originally a Spanish subject himself, he has become a 'renegade', a convert and prospered in Turkey. He has fallen in love with Konstanze. Pedrillo has smuggled letters out to his master and Belmonte has sailed from Spain to try to rescue them.

WHY? Directed by Glyndebourne favourite David McVicar and conducted by Music Director Robin Ticciati, with a stellar cast including Sally Matthews as Konstanze, Edgaras Montvidas as Belmonte, Tobias Kehrer as Osmin and Mari Eriksmoen as Blonde
