Wednesday 23 July
The Vaults, 7-11pm performance The Red Shoes
The Vaults, Leake Street, London, SE1 7NN
Tangerino was set up by Lil and Kitty Rice early last year. They wanted to find a way of mixing a love of music, art, theatre and circus and so in June 2013 put on our their first show.
The Show of The Red Shoes is inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s tale, addressing the themes of the story as opposed to the narrative. There will be five circus acts accompanied by five different instruments. Expect elements of promenade theatre, original music and incredible acrobatics.

A leading artist to emerge from Bristol’s infamous graffiti scene, Sickboy’s humorous and subversive
street exploits have firmly placed him in the upper echelons of the British street art movement.
With appearances in Banksy’s Oscar nominated ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’ and impromptu public
installations outside the Tate Modern, Sickboy’s return to London with a full-scale exhibition
celebrates a poignant embodiment of the artist’s inspirations to date.

Itinerancy has increasingly become one of the primary characteristics that differentiate the lifestyles of the people, particularly the young, of contemporary western societies from the lifestyles of their predecessors. We move from city to city, rented accommodation to rented accommodation at an ever-increasing pace. A consequence of employment becoming increasingly flexible and precarious as well as a workforce that is more skilled and less laden with material and maternal/paternal commitments than its precursors. It is a process that is also hastened by a housing market in which supply and demand have slowly drifted apart from each other. This situation is nowhere more evident than in London, a city in which the migratory flow around and through it happens at an exhilarating pace and where the ideologically driven discourse on how to manage the places we live in is at its most charged.
171 Union Street City of London SE1 0LN, United Kingdom
Artists: Maisie Broadhead, Linda Brothwell, Adam Buick, Nahoko Kojima, Roanna Wells.
Jerwood Makers Open 2013 is a unique commissioning opportunity which recognises rising stars in the world of applied arts. The Jerwood Makers Open exhibition will be open until 8pm as part of SLAM Fridays, the last Friday of every month.
152 Deptford High Street London SE8 3PQ
Victoria’s practice is heavily invested within the craft of traditional drawing methods, ranging from drawings, stencils and etchings through to painting. She uses this rich history within print making to construct a conversation between the old and new, while using subject matter to describe this break in nature. The show is a result of three years of focus within this discipline of print and drawing. The work itself consists of landscapes drawn with Arney’s distinct style and touch. The sources of these prints are images found on the Internet, of contemporary landscapes, vast seas, forests, ruin, decay and disasters. These landscapes hold the sublime nature of catastrophe, places fractured by physical shifts.
