The Grubby Mitts with support from Bob Stanley (St Etienne, DJ set) and Mira Calix Sunday 5 November, 7:30pm – 10:30pm (Doors: 7pm) Cecil Sharp House, London In a rare London show to mark the end of Andy Holden’s Natural Selection exhibition, the Grubby Mitts will explore one of the exhibition’s central themes – collecting – through a selection of compositions combining spoken word, objects and music. Central to the show will be a theatrical ‘unboxing’ of Holden’s late Grandmother’s collection of ceramic cats to a live soundtrack, this extended piece will weave a narrative through which the various cats are introduced. The programme will also feature a new composition built from transcriptions of bird song played on tuned-percussion and a host of older Grubby Mitts songs reinterpreted by a new and expanded line up.

Time: 7:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Mira Calix composes score for Angus Jackson’s Coriolanus Royal Shakespeare Company: Coriolanus – William Shakespeare A full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, Coriolanus transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome. Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to power, yet he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. Now he must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie. Set in a new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor widens every day, this visceral production opens the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rome season in London. Following his sell-out hits Oppenheimer (2014) and Don Quixote (2016) in Stratford-upon-Avon, Season Director Angus Jackson directs rising talent Sope Dirisu in the title role. Buy Tickets
