The Watermill - JOURNEY'S END

Just before Germany’s spring offensive in 1918, British officers are in a dug-out on the front line. Keen young officer Raleigh joins the company and finds Stanhope, his old friend, much changed. Trying to create some sort of normality amidst the horror, are Trotter, who is furious about how the war has interfered with his meal times, Hibbert, who is trying to find a way to escape, and Osborne, who would rather be tending to his garden.

(Running until Sat 11 Oct 2014)



Corn Exchange - Without Stars & There We Have Been

James Cousins has achieved more than many choreographers manage in a lifetime. A graduate of London Contemporary Dance School, he has moved seamlessly from performing work to creating it, finding himself in demand with companies at home and abroad.

Like Matthew Bourne, Cousins knows how to communicate with an audience. He thinks outside the box. Abstract yet utterly accessible, his choreography is dynamic, emotional and clever.

Inspired by Haruki Murakami’s dark but tender novel, Norwegian Wood, Cousins has choreographed Without Stars and There We Have Been. Taking the themes of love, loss and friendship, and adding his own unique quality to them, he has created a rich and powerful double-bill.
