Cinema Of The Imagination: Rebranding Beelzebub

ART HOUSE & THE CRICK CRACK CLUB PRESENT FAIRYTALES FOR GROWN-UPS AT THE ART HOUSE… Performance Storytelling by Tim Ralphs LIVE on the Arthouse stage Suitable for Adults (14+) Have you seen the cloven hoof prints on the cellar steps? Have you heard the fiddle player cursing? Can you smell the scent of burning secrets? Shot through with diabolical horror, absurd confessions and humour fit for the unholy ghost - master of all things odd, Tim Ralphs, shines a spotlight on Him Downstairs, Old Nick, Beelzebub, the Devil himself, to see if he might just be ready for a rebrand! In this wild reimagining of folktale, fairytale and urban legend, Tim exhumes the bones of ancient Devil stories and stitches them into new skins for fresh consumption. This grand collection spans supermarket stalls, urban sprawls, mad drunken preachers and widow's sons: darkly humorous with disturbing twists and a distinct whiff of sulphur…. TIM RALPHS is one of the most exciting young talents on the British storytelling scene. Teller in residence of the Word Smack Cabaret and host of Sheffield's The Story Forge, Tim's performance style is energetic and his composition knows no bounds. Striving always to innovate, his work draws on our international narrative inheritance, the ever-changing cityscape of his home, fairytale, myth and legend. His performances merge the contemporary with the ancient with enviable integrity and a touch of genius.

  • Directed by: Pablo Larrain
  • Cast: Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, John Hurt

Impressionistic, non-linear portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy, with an agonising, in-depth performance by Portman, who is gripping either while giving a shy television tour of the White House, or going to pieces in a bathroom. A mesmerising, technically virtuosic and remarkable reflection on celebrity, memory and the determined individual crafting history.

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.
