GUSH, Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne
GUSH is a new body of sound sculpture, film and wall-based works by British artist and Somerset House Studios resident, Hannah Perry. It offers a candid and personal exploration of mental and emotional health in our contemporary, hyper-networked society, and it’s Perry’s first major solo exhibition in the UK outside London.
 
The exhibition opens on Saturday 10th November with a special performance exploring the body’s endurance capabilities, struggles, rhythms and repetitions. It was devised and choreographed by Perry in collaboration with London Contemporary Orchestra and music producer Coby Sey.

‘Trial by Laughter’, UK tour
After the sell-out success of The Wipers comes a new play from Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, Trial by Laughter, based on their critically acclaimed original BBC Radio 4 drama.
 
In 1817, William Hone stood trial for parodying religion, the despotic government and the libidinous monarchy. Arguably, the only crime he had committed was to be funny. Trial by Laughter is a rediscovery of this forgotten hero of free speech and asks if our press has any greater freedom two hundred years later.
 
The show opens in Ipswich tonight, and UK tour has been extended to include Malvern, Greater Manchester, Chichester, Glasgow, Richmond, Milton Keynes and Eastbourne in early 2019.

Flux, Swansea & Oxford
Inspired by interviews with female scientists, Flux charts the story of Kate, a young physicist burning with potential. She struggles to be noticed until a male colleague uncovers her brilliance and pushes her forward. But, just as Kate begins to excel professionally, the balance between life and work suddenly flips.
 
Smoking Apples theatre company use a dynamic, tetris-like set to evoke Kate’s world, a blend of live action and shadow puppetry and a thumping 80s soundtrack by award-winning composer Jon Ouin, to explore the ever-resonant story of a woman fighting to be heard.
