What’s On

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

ON SATUR­DAY, Oc­to­ber 13, at 7.30pm, What A Lit­tle Bird Told Me presents When Did You Stop Danc­ing? at Edge Hill Arts Cen­tre – writ­ten and per­formed by Rachel McBride.

There’s a spe­cial ticket of­fer for this per­for­mance – you can book two tick­ets for the price of one.

Five hun­dred years af­ter the Danc­ing Plague of 1518, Rachel retells this story of civil ac­tion, in­ves­ti­gat­ing how the sim­ple process of danc­ing lib­er­ates us in com­plex ways.

It’s about fe­male upris­ing, peace­ful protest, what it means to take a stand, and to stand to­gether. Told with ten­der­ness, and truly ter­ri­ble jokes.

Tick­ets: £10 / £8 con­ces­sions / Free for EHU Stu­dents with Arts Cen­tre mem­ber­ship. ON MON­DAY, Oc­to­ber 15, at 7.30pm, The Lon­don Artists Projects present Truth To Power Cafe.

This event is free but book­ing is re­quired.

Who has power over you, and what do you want to say to them? Truth to Power Cafe is a new in­ter­na­tional per­for­mance event mix­ing mem­oir, im­age, po­etry, mu­sic, and live and spon­ta­neous tes­ti­mony from par­tic­i­pants ris­ing up in the name of free speech and po­lit­i­cal ac­tivism.

Speak­ing truth to power has its ori­gins in the anti-war move­ment, and is now widely ac­cepted to mean say­ing some­thing to those in au­thor­ity or po­si­tions of trust who don’t want to hear it. Is it to your par­ents, a sib­ling, politi­cian, lover, land­lord, re­li­gious leader, boss, banker or sim­ply your best friend?

It’s time to tell them the truth be­fore it’s too late.

We wel­come par­tic­i­pants of all ages, beliefs and back­grounds, who have up to five min­utes to re­spond to the ques­tion be­fore a live au­di­ence. To take part, sign up at truthto power.co.uk/tak­ing­part-dates/ or email jeremy@lon­don artist­spro­jects.co.uk for fur­ther info.
