SINGER-SONGWRITER Ben Watt Trio Following the release of his elegant, wistful album, Hendra, earlier this year, Watt (right) & friends ( including guitarist Bernard Butler, no less) plays his first Irish gig in many years. Expect recent songs, vintage gems, ironic between-song comments, and, if avid fans are lucky, one or two Everything But the Girl-era tunes. JAZZ Maya Homburger/Barry Guy Bassist Barry Guy and Baroque violinist Maya Homburger are no strangers to Irish audiences, having made their home together here for many years. But live performances by the husband & wife duo here are rare, so the latest installment of the Little Museum’s imaginative Santa Rita series is an excellent opportunity to hear two unique and fearless musicians of international stature. ART For God and Ulster: Photographs by Gordon Ashbridge Gordon Ashbridge grew up as a member of Belfast’s Christian evangelical movement. He worked as a firefighter for 30 years and now teaches photography. Ashbridge has made several substantial series of works, all of which explore “our basic, and often frustrated, desire for a sense of community”. Here he includes works from his family album depicting 1950s Belfast. THEATRE The Locked Room The only way is up for aerial theatre. Or is it? For the past few years, innovators of the genre, equipped with breathtaking acrobatic skills, have sought to take the form in new directions. Niamh Creely’s Ether Productions have combined psychological fairytales with pole dance and ribbon routines, and a floating playground for a post-apocalyptic fantasy. Now Creely and Jonathan Walsh introduce spoken word for a comic existential crisis, a first for the company, as is the inclusion of an armed nuclear device.
