Robin Stewart: The Inner Life

North Wall Arts Centre, South Parade
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX2 7JN United Kingdom
Free

Robin Stewart’s work creates the feeling of an alternative world into which any of us might easily slip. The paintings, as we live with them, provoke questions about who we are and what we are doing. The collages are rhythmical, and the drawings give the people they depict a sense of timelessness. Robin, who lives in Oxford, studied art at Belfast College of Art, after which he was awarded a Boise Scholarship. He then studied for a year at The…

In the midst of it all, Stranger, a young girl’s beloved dog, has gone missing. Will Stranger be found before the border closes, or will she be trapped forever on the “wrong” side? The Border is a high energy, outrageous Brechtian parable from Theatre Centre that…

Don Quixote

The Oxford Covered Market, The Covered Market
Oxford, Oxfordshire OX1 3DY United Kingdom
£23 – £25

Adapted and directed by Jonathan Holloway, Creation Theatre’s Don Quixote will remain faithful to Cervantes’ beautiful paean to growing old while simultaneously re-fashioning it as a fable for our times, in Oxford's Covered Market. A Honda 50cc moped represents a noble steed, a folding Formica topped camping table accommodates a great feast, the woman in accounts handing out the P45s stands-in as Dom’s unattainable beauty, Dulcinea del Toboso. Sometimes almost unbearably moving, our evening of ghosts and dreams celebrates the…
