‘The Future is Certain; It’s the Past Which is Unpredictable’

London,Calvert 2223 Jun - 20 Aug
‘The future is certain’, according to an old Soviet joke, ‘it’s the past which is unpredictable’. The exhibition reflects on the ways history is written and the inevitability with which the past reasserts itself in the future. Bringing together works from nine artists and collectives, The Future is Certain is an economy of ideas and artworks as well as historical facts and records that refuse to disappear on their own.

Lost in Translation: A Bilingual Journey

Edinburgh,Institut Français d’Ecosse4 Aug - 28 Aug
What happens in the mind of a bilingual person? Inspired by true events from the last three decades, the story follows heroine Marion through this coming of age tale that flirts with pop culture references and stereotypes while challenging our (mis-)conceptions about identity, home and communication. A hybrid piece about and beyond boundaries: performed in four languages (Occitan, French, English, and Gaelic), it playfully mixes comedy with physical theatre, storytelling with puppets and above all fantasy with reality.

Membre Fantôme at Fringe Edinburgh

Edinburgh,Institut Français d’Ecosse16 Aug - 20 Aug
In their performance, Erwan Keravec and Mickaël Phelippeau question the transformation of identity – the person we used to be but who is now gone forever. This is the ‘Phantom Limb’ which gives its name to their show. The two artists – one, a bagpiper, the other a choreographer – share a reflection around that notion of identity in art. This exploration is embodied by the dancer and the bagpipes themselves, both charged with personal and traditional history, which the…
