  1. Concerto

    Pinchbeck, Michael
    A unique musical experience inspired by Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand and featuring world-renowned concert pianist Nicholas McCarthy. Paul Wittgenstein commissioned Ravel to write him a piano concerto after he lost his right arm during the First World War. Assassin, Gavrilo Princip, is in prison, his withered arm tied up with piano wire. Unravelling narratives surround this music’s composition – and together they weave a true story that spans 100 years. Concerto is a deconstructed and re-orchestrated exploration of the legacy of war and the healing power of music to overcome tragedy. Musical manuscript will fall from the...

  4. The middle

    Pinchbeck, Michael
    Inspired by Hamlet, The Middle is a one-man show devised for a theatre foyer – a liminal space between outside and inside, the real world and the theatre. Hamlet is a character caught in a limbo between ‘To be or not to be’ and by casting his father, Tony, to play the title role, Michael will explore time passing, ageing and the relationship between father and son. Supported by Curve (Leicester), hÅb (Manchester) and LPAC (Lincoln), The Middle is the final part of a Shakespeare trilogy and takes place in the interval between The Beginning and The End.

  5. Bolero

    Pinchbeck, Michael
    In 1928, Maurice Ravel wrote Bolero in Paris. In 1984, Torvill and Dean danced to it at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. Eight years later the stadium where they won gold was bombed. Working with the music as a bridge between these two stories, Michael takes a journey from Paris to Sarajevo, from 1914 to 1994, from the First World War to the Bosnian War to the present day. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the British Council, Bolero is a co-production between Nottingham Playhouse, ODA Theatre (Pristina) and Sarajevo War Theatre.

  7. Intense embodiment: senses of heat in women’s running and boxing [video short]

    Allen-Collinson, Jacquelyn; Owton, Helen
    A video abstract introducing our article in Body & Society, utilizing sociological phenomenology to examine sensuous embodiment. Drawing upon data from three research projects, here we explore some of the ‘sensuousities’ of ‘intense embodiment’ experiences as a distance-running-woman and a boxing-woman, respectively. Our analysis addresses the relatively unexplored haptic senses, particularly the ‘touch’ of heat. Heat has been argued to constitute a specific sensory mode, a trans-boundary sense. Our findings suggest that ‘lived’ heat, in our own physical-cultural experiences, has highly proprioceptive elements and is experienced as both a form of touch and as a distinct perceptual mode, dependent upon context. Our analysis coheres around two key themes...
