2009 Season Launch Event

2009 Season Launch Event



In the gallery - FutureEverything – ENVIRONMENT 2.0
In the theatre - Faulty Optic – FISH CLAY PERSPEX

Come along to the Great Hall Complex at Lancaster University on the 6th of October and celebrate the opening of an exciting new season of work and an innovative new artistic venture for the region.

Marking the start of this electrifying season is an evening of forceful and irreverent art, Environment 2.0 – an exploration of art and sustainability from Manchester’s FutureEverything Festival – and some decidedly dangerous adult puppetry from audience favourites Faulty Optic.

The evening kicks off at 6pm and will also feature film screenings, music and a free glass of wine to help toast the start the season.

Hope to see you there!

Lancaster International Concert Series, The Nuffield Theatre and The Peter Scott Gallery have come together artistically and administratively under Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) to bring together a cross-cutting programme of fantastic new art. This melding of art forms promises to deliver the striking and unexpected, beginning with performance in galleries and the town hall, online concerts and installations across Lancaster and the University campus. This year’s programme includes major visiting companies and ensembles, new commissions, world premieres and unique projects with local residents.

Environment 2.0 (opening) exhibition runs until Saturday 31 October.
Nuffield Theatre and Manchester’s Futuresonic Festival together commissioned artists to respond to the theme of social networking ‘unplugged’, we present their exploration of art and sustainability: Environment 2.0.

8pm, Faulty Optic – Fish Clay Perspex* (also showing 8pm, Wednesday 7 October 2009).
In a triple-bill of surreal and fantastical tales, the company manipulate puppets, pointy-footed armless figures, clay, pens and plastic to plunge you into their world of bizarre adult puppetry.

*A Night Less Ordinary - There are a limited number of free tickets available for this performance to those aged 16-25. Please contact the box office for further details.
