UK creatives Idle Motion will be presenting a fascinating new devised work, ‘Voyager’, at the New Diorama Theatre from 24th May – 11th June 2016.

‘Voyager’ interweaves the stories of the spacecraft Voyager, launched in 1977, and Carrie, born at the same time. Forty years later, the spacecraft and its time capsule cargo are 12 billion miles from earth, poised to leave our solar system. This event triggers a yearning for space travel in Carrie. She is seized with the desire to travel to Mars on a one-way mission. The acclaimed Idle Motion company ambitiously tackles themes of space exploration and the ethical dilemmas this provokes. ‘Voyager’ promises to be an inspiring and innovative event with Idle Motion’s trademark multimedia staging, transforming the stage at New Diorama into our own solar system.

MO-GA: Perfectly Imperfect

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
