February sees two remarkable live performances come to Thirsk, courtesy of regional arts charity Rural Arts. On Thursday 13th February multi-award winning writer and broadcaster Byron Vincent will perform his funny and entertaining one-man show, Instagramming the Apocalypse.
After being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, Byron turns his sharp wit and curious mind to the modern malaise, posing questions on everything from fake news and politics to cynicism and relationships.
The performance is preceded by Wanted: Access Everywhere, a free day of discussion on what more can be done to support disabled people in the arts – as artists, participants and audience – in rural areas. Rural Arts is co-organising the event with Unlimited, a disabled commissioning organisation who funded the creation of Instagramming the Apocalypse.
On 28th February, Leeds-based Balbir Singh Dance Company perform an exciting show that blends dance, music and food. Love and Spice combines different art forms and cultural traditions with a chef cooking live on stage. The show is a multicultural feast for all the senses, with audiences being served an Indian meal as part of the ticket price.
Both performances, as well as Wanted: Access Everywhere, will be presented at Rural Arts, The Courthouse, Westgate, Thirsk, YO7 1QS. Tickets to all events can be booked at www.ruralarts.org or by calling 01845 526536. Evening performances start at 7.30pm with tickets prices of £10 for Adults and £8 for Concessions.
