Events this Month

Barb Jungr, 27th April 2018, 19:30 at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Keepers Lane, Leavenheath, Colchester (12.3 miles)
Jungr returns to the writing of Bob Dylan again and again to explore the richest veins of inspiration. One of the very finest vocalists around, Barb does not just sing songs, but, based on her deep insightful understanding, completely inhabits them in her own unique way. She delivers lyrics with enveloping emotion, by turns rich in passion or tenderness, anger or humour and her performances are honed to a perfection which renders the word â??interpretsâ?? wholly inadequate.
Joining Barb is Australian pianist Jenny Carr who has worked extensively with her over the years and always provides sensitive accompaniment with increasingly jazz infused solos overlying her classical roots.
Dudley Phillips has worked regularly with many singers including Amy Winehouse, Bill Withers and of course Barb. Expect an emotional roller-coaster that will invite you to reflect on the world in which we live, but always with the safety net of amusing and sometimes downright hilarious commentary, delivered in Barbâ??s own inimitable style.

Daughter, Daughter - Before I Met You, 4th May 2018, 19:30 at DanceEast, Jerwood Dance House, Foundry Lane, Ipswich (10.1 miles)
She is a shadow, she is a mirror.

Daughter, Daughter peers through the keyhole into the pervasive experience of fatherhood. A split moment and the world is unrecognisable. Without warning, everything takes a new meaning. The depth of responsibility, love, guilt and lack of control. The anxiety and the pride. A feeling of being reborn and wondering - how did I live before?

Inspired by real stories from men and their daughters, this show is a highly physical and emotive new dance show about fatherhood. Joseph Toonga shines a stark and honest light on this profound experience through his abstract and signature hip hop and contemporary style.

In 2015, Joseph Toonga was the first recipient of DanceEast's Choreographic Development Fund, enabling his continued artistic development. Joseph was commissioned to make To Be Felt, a spectacular celebration of live cello and dance which was performed at Orford Church in 2016, and as part of the Roman River Music Festival in 2017. DanceEast is proud to continue this relationship as commissioning partner of Daughter, Daughter - Before I Met You.
