Bournemouth’s Arts by the Sea festival showcases jam-packed programme
THE Bournemouth Arts By The Sea festival continues this week with a host of events until its conclusion on Sunday.
Tonight sees more thought-provoking performances that includes Paganini by Candlelight from the Jack Maguire Ensemble in the Shelley Theatre and the latest Indian dance piece from Ash Dance Theatre taking place at Pavilion Dance in the Lower Gardens.
This evening also sees trailblazing art-pop band The Irrepressibles creating an extraordinary live spectacle at the Pier Theatre.
Led by composer and artist Jamie McDermott, The Irrepressibles will be taking the audience on a profoundly poignant emotional journey with a live performance of their latest album, Nude.
Using carefully choreographed movements, avant-garde costume, exquisite sets and a mixture of strings, electronics and percussion, the 10-member orchestral ensemble seek to create a unique audio-visual experience.
The final wee-kend includes indie band British Sea Power’s accompaniment to Robert Flaherty’s docu-drama Man of Aran.
There’s also an open weekend from Bournemouth Natural Science Society, exhibiting a unique collection of flora and fauna, drop-in family workshops, and Where the Wild Things Are from artist Pauline Stanley.
There is also The Cabinet of Living Cinema’s images and soundscapes from the Purbeck landscape inspired by artist Paul Nash and a Fringe Special Event – The Great Exhibition of Boscombe – showcasing a series of spectacles, art trails, musical delights, performances and street entertainment.
Arts and festival manager Carol Maund said: “There is much more to do to develop the festival but it is a fantastic step in extending and expanding the cultural offer of the town for our residents and visitors. This year audiences came from far and wide, with people travelling from all over the country and even abroad, attracted by the breadth and range of the programme.”
Carol added: “The festival has a direct impact on the economy, the well-being of the town and the ability to attract visitors back again to experience all the other opportunities on offer.”
