Also, Meredith Collins posted a review on her blog Along Came a Cider, as she was luckily visiting the UK from America at the right time.

Exhibition Review

Here is a review I wrote about a contemporary art show.

Martin Howse – September 2012

In September, 2012, performance and experimental artist Martin Howse – previously found in action at places such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London cooking up his creative work set to music with his contemporaries – chose Falmouth for his first solo show Execution.

Here is my review of this interesting and strange show, which incorporated itself beautifully into the Fish Factory’s exhibition space, with help from in-house and the artist’s own craftsmanship.

The review can be found alongside many other recent shows which have been held in Cornwall on the ArtCornwall.org website. Martin Howse Execution.

Comedians in Falmouth

Since I moved to Falmouth in 2011, I’ve seen two of favourite comedians perform within walking distance of where I live. One, Mark Steel, was at the Pavillion and the other, Josie Long, was at the Poly.

Thanks for the pose, Josie.

In a year I’ve also seen Henning Wehn, who was fabulous, Robin Ince, Seann Walsh (not my cuppa) and Jo Caulfield (laughed throughout). At the Pavillion, I also saw Simon Day from the Fast Show who seemed ill-advised in his performance of a reading from his autobiography for £14 a head.

It’s not just comedians but local theatre companies too. Owdyado Theatre toured Wrong-doings and Wake Up Calls at the Stop-Off Motel, which I saw at the Poly. Last night I saw Near-Ta Theatre’s Christmas Time in which two guys in jail get themselves worked up into Christmas excitement which climaxes with their own nativity musical.

Here’s a link to my review of Josie Long at the Poly in the local paper.
