It is the people of Lincolnshire’s creative guide to nurturing wellbeing. Keeping our bodies and minds active, healthy and strong, together. Week Five – Contemplation Station – NHS Step 5: Pay Attention to the Present Moment (Mindfulness) Our inspiration for this project has come from the NHS Five Steps to Wellbeing and week five’s theme is Mindfulness. Mindfulness is when we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings, our body and the world around us. Practices like meditation can help unlock innovation, for example, whilst a creative activity can quiet noisy thoughts that stops us from finding perspective. Indeed, being in the moment, captivated by a performance, or engaged in a creative task, is a really simple way of reaching mindfulness. Certainly, paying attention to the present can help us to enjoy the things that we might have been taking for granted. And we hope that you will join us in turning to culture and creativity to enjoy the now.

Why not get those creative juices flowing by having a go at something new, and letting us know all about it so we can learn from you.

BBC PERFORMANCE LIVE – WISE CHILDREN

 

The BBC’s Performance Live series, available on BBC iPlayer, is home to a recording of Emma Rice’s adaptation of Angela Carter’s last novel Wise Children, about twins from a dysfunctional family who pursue a career performing as showgirls

Rice is no stranger to Angela Carter’s work, having adapted Nights at the Circus in 2006 for Kneehigh Theatre Company. The magical realism of Carter, along with her strong feminist voice, and ability to enthuse dark narratives with warmth, make them the perfect creative pairing.

Rice’s direction is always highly theatrical, delving deep into ensemble storytelling to lend an epic quality to her productions, but Wise Children, like her previous shows, always makes sure it maintains a sense of silliness, an awareness that the whole conceit is one big joke and we’re all in on it together.

Loved by audiences and critics since its premiere in 2019, Wise Children is an unapologetic celebration of the highs and lows that come from choosing to experience life to the full, come what may.

 

THE SHOWS MUST GO ON!

An image of the musical By Jeeves

This week’s musical extravaganza is Alan Ayckbourn and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical comedy, By Jeeves! Inspired by the works of P. G. Wodehouse. Available online from Friday 8 May at 7pm for 48 hours.

Read More

A flop on it’s first run back in 1975 but subsequently re-written, this lesser known work by Lloyd Webber is now a charmingly silly musical that is sure to put a smile on your face. It is as much a homage to the musical works of Noel Coward as it is to the exploits of the foolish Bertie Wooster and his quick-witted deadpan butler Jeeves, and that’s no bad thing! Great fun!

The Shows Must Go On! streamings are all free but viewers are encouraged to make a donation to a number of charities including NHS Charities Together

 

ROYAL OPERA HOUSE – OUR HOUSE TO YOUR HOUSE

The Royal Opera House is home to both the Royal Opera and Royal Ballet companies, and its online streaming schedule makes the most of these prestigious companies’ back catalogue, all available via YouTube.

NATIONAL THEATRE – AT HOME

The National Theatre were one of the first arts organisations to regularly live cast their productions, with the NT Live brand becoming a familiar sight in cinemas over the past decade, so no wonder that they should be one of the first to announce a regular programme of performance online during Lockdown.

Venue To Remain Closed Until 31 August 2020 https://lpac.co.uk/venue-to-remain-closed-until-31-august-2020/ Thu, 30 Apr 2020 12:59:05 +0000 https://lpac.co.uk/?p=4593774 Due to the ongoing global pandemic Lincoln Performing Arts Centre has confirmed the temporary cessation of all venue-based activities has been extended. The stage is set to remain dark until the end of the summer, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre has confirmed, due to the likelihood of ongoing social distancing measures being in force throughout the summer. The venue had previously closed on 16 March for an initial twelve-week period in line with Government advice but as the pandemic has worsened the venue has extended this up until 31 August 2020. All visiting companies and community hirers have been informed and where possible rescheduled. The venue is currently in the process of contact audience members to arrange for a transfer of tickets or a refund. Some audience members have even chosen to donate the value of their tickets, which has been gratefully received. In a statement Artistic Director Craig Morrow said: “The safety and health of all of our staff, visiting companies, artists, and audiences is of the utmost priority.

Given the lack of guidance to the live events sector regarding what sort of measures should be in place after Lockdown ends we have decided to acknowledge the likelihood that restrictions will need to be in place beyond 7 June 2020, when we initially had planned to reopen.

Indeed, it was becoming increasingly difficult for our partners with shows beyond that date to plan for rehearsals and so it seems sensible to draw a line under the situation and start rescheduling for another date.”

In the meantime Lincoln Performing Arts Centre has begun to deliver some of its activities online, such as Youth Theatre and Lil’ PACS, its free under fives storytelling and craft sessions, as well as a number of online projects including Wellness Compass, a community guide to wellbeing.
