The Resistible Rise

Attitude School of Dance This dance production is based upon the play ‘The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui’ by Bertolt Brecht, which is set in 1930s Chicago and follows the swift rise to power by the fictional gangster, Arturo Ui. This is a parody of the rise of Hitler’s Nazi Party in Germany. The play is often studied at A Level, as its historical context, literary parallels to Shakespeare, and abstract theatrical techniques crossover the boundaries of Theatre Studies, English Literature and History studies. The play will be recreated through Russian Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Street, Contemporary and Character Dance using musical influences from the 1920s and 1930s, as well as other relevant eclectic pieces to create a powerful, satirical and sometimes shocking story. Friday 2nd…

Creative Workspace Network Project Manager: paid work opportunity

Last year Arts Gateway led a sub-regional project funded by the Arts Council to identify and connect organisations offering creative workspace across the SEMLEP sub-region.

Enable creative workspaces to collaborate and benefit from training, lobbying, advice and the sharing of resources b. Create a robust network equipped to…
