Welcome from our Director
Welcome to our spring 2019 season which is full of exciting, challenging and adventurous participatory experiences.
Highlights this season include: the return of the world-renowned Stephen Hough (15 Jan) and the Pavel Haas Quartet (24 April) as part of the Amici Artium series; the folk melodies of The Outside Track (26 Jan) who helped us celebrate 35 years a year ago; and a wolf kid theatre residency (Jersey Arts Centre’s 29th residency since 2009!) with an improvised theatre piece The Boiling Sea v1.3 (13 April). And we welcome back our Honorary Patron, John Lloyd, on 18 April in Another Audience With…
Don’t miss two superb shows seen at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer 2018: Flo & Joan: Alive on Stage (30 Jan) and Casey Jay Andrews’ intimate storytelling installation of The Archive of Educated Hearts (15-18 April). Book early for all the above to avoid disappointment!
Our 37th youtheatre presentation will be Kes, and adaptation of Barry Hines’ classic 1968 novel ‘A Kestrel for a Knave’, co-directed by Hettie Duncan and Nicole Twinam – see page 33 for details.
