Something for the Weekend (18-20 April 08)

Commissions, renditions and musicians in Ben Patey's latest weekly edition

Published on April 17th 2008.


Something for the Weekend (18-20 April 08)

Eternal Youth
At FACT, there’s a new media commission charting society’s obsession with celebrity.

Film-makers Al Taylor and Al Holmes use blue screen technology to mix live action and computerised images.

Al and Al, as they are known, currently hold residence in Edge Hill Station where their blue screen studio is housed, whilst simultaneously helping to set up a thriving arts community.

In Eternal Youth Birkenhead-born Philip McHugh plays a singer who is the subject of an assassination attempt by a fan resonating with the murder of John Lennon.

It promises to serve up lots of thought provoking fodder as the audience take a look into just how much of contemporary culture exists in a virtual world – to the point where virtual and reality crossover with devastating consequences.

Eternal Youth @ FACT, Wood Street
Friday 18 April – 8 June

Classical Spectacular
The Echo Arena forgets about its lecky bill for the night as a state of the art lighting rig helps illuminate Classical Spectacular. The music show comes to Liverpool on Saturday complete with its stunning visuals, laser displays and even indoor fireworks. Crikey. I hope Mr Bradley's on standby with his fire engine.

Of course, the visuals are all well and good but what about the music? Luckily the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra have been signed up for the event and they'll be playing a superb programme of classical big hitters.

Don't take our word for it though. See below for a taster.

Baile(e) me out
Bored of the same old bars, the same old people? Get yourself down to Bar Fresa this Friday night where the music takes on a South American vibe and the people...well the people are still probably the same.

The night features Brazilian Urban music in the form of Hip Hop, Funk and Reggeton. Diversity at its best.

Endgame
Everyman alumnus Matthew Kelly returns to Liverpool in a new production directed by the award-winning Lucy Pitman-Wallace of Beckett’s masterpiece of the absurd.

Kelly performed at the Everyman regularly in the 70s with the likes of Julie Walters and Pete Postlethwaite.

In Endgame, he plays plays Hamm, an aged master who cannot stand up up. His son Matthew Rixon, plays his servent Clov who cannot sit down.

Throw in two legless parents who live in dustbins, a telescope, a ladder and a fugitive rat. Sound bizarre? It is. Check out the trailer below.Endgame @ Liverpool Everyman11 April - 3 May7:45pm0151 709 4776 Book Online
