Roll on May!
It’s not long now until the Brighton Festival get’s under-way! All of us here at Moksha have been highly anticipating the festival season in Brighton. It marks the start of Summer and shows off how Brighton does this season better than anywhere else in the UK. And what’s at the centre of this season? Brighton Festival. Now in it’s 49th year, it has become synonymous with creativity from all over the world. It’s the showcase for all things ‘arty’. This ranges from all of the weird and wonderful, to the innovative and thought-provoking, Brighton Festival holds something for everyone.
Following on from this, we want to share with you what some us here are really looking forward to, from this years event:
Ania – The Company Of Wolves
A thrill seeking interactive outdoor activity based on the stories by Angela Carter. An opportunity to get into character and experience the story in a whole different way.
Tom – Carousel
A snippet into the lives of those who live and work in the fairground. It’s been described as an ‘edgy story of enigmatic characters’ who use real fairground attractions as props in their performances.
Ryan – Dreams of a Life
This documentary drama re-lives the story of Joyce Carol Vincent who died surrounded by partly wrapped Christmas presents and whose body wasn’t discovered for 3 years. It’s a story into isolating aspects of urban living.
Ula – Beyond
This ensemble performance will captivate you as ‘a deliciously surreal and surprisingly beautiful world emerges before your eyes.’ This act has performed all over the world and is one that will not fail to entertain you.
These two have performed together since the age of 15. They were the first guitarists to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School. This was made possible thanks to a generous donation from The Rolling Stones. Laura and Tom went on to become the winners of the 2012 Ligita International Guitar Duo Competition.
Hopefully there’s enough variety here to show you the range of entertainment this festival has to offer. Roll on May!
Enjoy the festival you wonderful lot
