ART ‘The LBT literally gave me the key and said “explore the building”. It’s been absolutely incredible. It’s a huge maze with wooden beams in the roof and some beautiful areas in the basement – even the boiler room has beautiful architecture, colours and lighting. These are spaces that audiences would never normally see, but they’ll now have the chance.’ Conforming to social distancing rules during rehearsals and filming has been made easier, he says, because this is a piece for one dancer.

Hepworth Wakefield 01924 247360 hepworthwakefield.org UNTIL NOVEMBER 1ST LINES OF BEAUTY: MASTER DRAWINGS FROM CHATSWORTH Chatsworth at Sheffield Museums: Alessandro Bonvicino, called Moretto da Brescia, A woman’s head with braided hair, 16th century Lawrence Batley Theatre 01484 430528 thelbt.org This exhibition, created in partnership with Chatsworth, showcases 50 works from the Devonshire collection of Old Master drawings. You know the type of thing: work from Carpaccio, Poussin, Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck, who only happen to be the most significant artists of the last 500-odd years. As you can probably guess, it’s work that doesn’t get out much, so this major exhibition – featuring portraiture, landscapes, classical and religious narratives – is the largest display of the drawings in more than 20 years. OCTOBER 31–NOVEMBER 20 WHAT A CARVE UP! An online performance of a murder mystery, based on Jonathan Coe’s award-winning satirical novel, which was itself a swipe at the Conservative/Thatcherite politics of the 1980s. Ticket holders will receive a screening link via email so that they can see the show from their homes on the day of their booked performance. Each link will expire after 48 hours.

LOCKED IN. BUT LIVING. Three choreographers – Jordan James Bridge, Daniel de Andrade and Gary Clarke – present an online dance show exploring the theme of isolation caused by the pandemic. We’ve spoken to Grimethorpeborn Clarke for an interview elsewhere in this issue, who says his segment has been inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland, and is a work which has been filmed in all areas of the building. So it’s further unleashed his creativity. ‘I’ve been like a child in a sweet shop,’ says Clarke. 0113 245 5311 redladder.co.uk COLLECTIVE ACTS The York Theatre Royal’s programme of activities and digital events to keep people busy until its doors open again.
