Anna Boghiguian Exhibition, Tate St Ives, Fri 8 Feb – Mon 6 May

Castello di Rivoli Museo di Arte Contemporanea

This is the first retrospective in the UK of the Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin, Anna Boghiguian (Cairo, 1946). Informed by her interest in philosophy and her continuous travels, Boghiguian’s work comments on the human condition through the perspectives of global trade, mass migration, colonialism and war. The exhibition will feature large-scale installations of cut-out paper figures, alongside paintings, collages and books, as well as components of the artist’s studio brought to St Ives.
Scratchworks Theatre: WOMANS (like Romans but with a ‘W’), AMATA, Penryn, Sat 9 Feb

It’s 46BC, Ancient Rome. Our hero, Leta has been declared a traitor by the Roman Senate. She is given a punishment worse than death ‘Damnatio Memoriae’ – to be erased from history. Whilst noble Gladiators and infamous Emperors around her are becoming legends, her name will be scratched out and forgotten forever. But with the help from some mischievous muses, she decides to rebel against the Republic. Join Leta’s determined journey to reclaim her place in the history books, from crashing the Colosseum to bargaining with Brutus, she will go to the ends of the empire to make her mark. A feast for the eyes and the ears with physical comedy, clowning and original music, WOMANS is a raucous tale of the first female resistance.

 

Poetry Around the Fire, The Gurnard’s Head, Zennor, Sat 9 Feb

The Gurnard’s Head welcomes acclaimed local poets and storytellers Angela Stoner and Katrina Naomi for Poetry Around The Fire. Angela loves telling stories. She’s been running creative writing workshops, courses and retreats since moving to Cornwall in 1998. Her published books include Once in a Blue Moon, Weight and Flight and Mazemaker’s Daughters and she won the Poetry Society’s Stanza Award and the first ever Poetry Out Loud competition held in Cornwall. Katrina Naomi’s latest collection is The Way the Crocodile Taught Me (Seren, 2016). Her work has been featured on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row and Poetry Please, and the BBC recently commissioned her to write a poem for National Poetry Day.

 

Fisherman’s Friends, St Fimbarrus Church, Fowey, Sat 9 Feb

A fantastic opportunity to see the wonderful Fisherman’s Friends in concert in Fowey. Together for the last 25 years, they have played at Glastonbury, BBC Proms in the Park and for HM the Queen at her Diamond Jubilee. Their album “Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends” went Gold and they were the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.
