Upcoming highlights at Bluecoat

LOCAL new music ensemble Immix return to the Bluecoat to perform new collaborative works for traditional instruments and modular electronics from Norwich based experimental electronica composer Luke Abbott and Liverpool composer Daniel Thorne.

Luke Abbott has been a leading figure in British electronic music for close to a decade, having released a wide array of output, typically working with modular synthesisers from ambient soundscapes to driving electronica as well as film scores and collaborations with the likes of Mercury Award nominated instrumental group Portico Quartet.

► Sgt. Pepper at 50: Good Morning, Good Morning... Friday, 9 June, 7.30am... Free, drop in... As part of the City wide celebration Sgt Pepper at 50, we open our building early to salute The Beatles' celebrated album track Good Morning, Good Morning. Come and join this early morning happening featuring a morning raga with live sitar and tabla, yoga in our courtyard, a crowing cockerel video, and DJ set of Pepper versions. Breakfast available from 7.30am.

► Nanny Cam... Sunday, 11 June, 4pm... Free, booking advised... Last summer the art criticism website and research project The White Pube, put an open call for videos made by people without a degree in Fine Art. Join us at Bluecoat for the screening of films by 20 of these alternative artists. Studio based university art education is a privilege that legitimises the artist's career but it is seen by some as expensive, unnecessary, and institutional. 'Nanny Cam' brings together films made by artists in their time working in retail, in the army, and bars. A few are unemployed, while one is a technician and another a nanny. A couple are alumni; but of Geography or Economics; or creative disciplines in which video is a peripheral outcome, such as Textiles or Architecture. All those involved have come to video through alternative epistemologies and cultures. This event will offer people the opportunity to view filmmaking through a different perspective, allowing us to readdress what constitutes an artist. Featuring artists:- Aaqib Hussain; Amartey Golding; Amelia Shivani Hassard; Anisa Jackson; Benjie Cluness; Damo Mac; Deborah Findlater //Freya E. Morris; GIANT BOMB; Golden Harvest Industries - Mineshaft Cruise Dept.; Herb Shellenberger; James St.Findlay; linze_911; Odira Morewabone; Oliver Matich; Ross Hunter; Sharon Lam; Stephanie Sant and Victoria Harrell.

► On the Way - Question Your Answers... Thursday, 16 June 2017, 7.30pm, Tickets:- ₤6/₤4... Join us for this movement based interdisciplinary performance with Jo Blowers and guests, as they tell stories that resonate on a personal and universal level and offer insights into what might happen as we navigate our way between the 2. The work plays with the idea of people as objects and objects as performers, the re-enchantment of everyday life, and is a tender, playful and quirky exploration of contemporary culture seen through the eyes of a diverse range of people. This performance will reflect material gathered from Jo's Post It sessions, that are taking place at Bluecoat throughout June 2017.

► Tonight at Noon - New Writing... Friday, 16 June 2017, 7.30pm, Tickets:- ₤10/₤7... The Mersey Sound has had an impact, direct or distant, on several generations of writers and performers. For this poetry reading, 5 poets have been commissioned to write new work in response to the work of:- Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Patten. Taking part are award winning poets:- Paul Farley, Deryn Rees-Jones, Eleanor Rees, Lizzie Nunnery and Andrew McMillan, with Brian Patten in attendance. This poetry reading is part of Tonight at Noon, a series of events and exhibitions taking place across Liverpool to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Mersey Sound.
