Martha and Kurt are two ex­pect­ing par­ents who work hard to pro­vide for their new fam­ily, in­tent to pro­vide com­fort and security for their child. But when Kurt’s boss of­fers him a chance to make some easy money in an un­eth­i­cal and com­pro­mis­ing way, his de­ci­sion threat­ens their fu­ture. Here, Conor McPher­son pro­vides a new ver­sion of Franz Xaver Kroetz’s 1975 play, Das Nest, con­ceived as a con­tem­po­rary moral­ity tale in which Caoil­fhionn Dunne and Lau­rence Kin­lan play the cou­ple at its con­flicted cen­tre. In a fur­ther coup for the Lyric and Young Vic co-pro­duc­tion, di­rected by Ian Rick­son, new mu­sic for its dark fa­ble comes from the de­li­ciously brood­ing PJ Har­vey. Birds of a feather… Anoushka Shankar Daugh­ter of the very great Ravi, and half-sis­ter of the very fa­mous No­rah Jones, Anoushka Shankar was never go­ing to be any­thing but a mu­si­cian. In­dian clas­si­cal mu­sic is a fam­ily busi­ness and BAROQUE AND ROLL East Cork Early Mu­sic Fes­ti­val Start­ing to­day and con­tin­u­ing ‘till Sun­day, the 14th East Cork Early Mu­sic Fes­ti­val (ECEMF) has firmly es­tab­lished on Ire­land’s clas­si­cal mu­sic cal­en­dar. This year, new artis­tic direc­tor Aoife Nic Ath­laoich’s pro­gramme fea­tures some of Ire­land’s lead­ing spe­cial­ists in Baroque, in­clud­ing Peter Whe­lan and En­sem­ble Marsyas, so­prano Rachel Kelly, Cam­er­ata Kilkenny and the Cork-based Gior­dani quar­tet. SOUL/POP Michael Ki­wanuka This Bri­tish soul song­writer (above) re­leased his sec­ond al­bum, Love & Hate, ear­lier this year to im­mense ac­claim, and so to catch one of his shows at such a small venue will surely be a treat to those that are lucky enough to have a ticket. Ref­er­ences? Fans of Marvin Gaye, Cur­tis May­field, Van Mor­ri­son and Otis Red­ding may want to pay at­ten­tion. LAUNCH Strictly Deep

TCL

Strictly Deep move be­yond the Pale with their first ven­ture Shan­non­side kick­ing off tonight with Josh But­ler in pole po­si­tion. A DJ who made his bones with stints un­der the she learned to play her sitar from the great master him­self. Like her fa­ther, she likes to reach be­yond the In­dian tra­di­tion, and her lat­est project, Land of Gold – a cry for sol­i­dar­ity with refugees and vic­tims of war - fuses east and west, with a quar­tet that in­cludes Bjork per­cus­sion­ist, Manu De­lagu. Sankeys and Tribal Ses­sions’ ban­ners, But­ler has also proven to be a pro­lific pro­ducer with well-re­ceived tracks for Kerri Chan­dler’s MadTech, Hec­tor Couto’s Roush, Green Vel­vet’s Ca­jual Records and Noir Mu­sic. Sup­port from Strictly Deep’s Kaily and Liam Duffy. ART Tor­ture No stranger to con­tro­versy, artist An­dreas Ser­rano found a dis­arm­ingly mat­ter-of-fact way to ad­dress the mon­strous sub­ject of tor­ture. With the guid­ance of a French Spe­cial Forces vet­eran, he en­gaged mod­els and work­ers in the ex­per­i­men­tal art space The Foundry at Maubour­quet in France to en­act the men­tal and phys­i­cal re­al­i­ties of tor­ture tech­niques, from Nazi Ger­many to Stasi in­ter­ro­ga­tion cen­tres to Abu Ghraib and the “deep in­ter­ro­ga­tion” meth­ods em­ployed in North­ern Ire­land.
