Ticket Price:

Saturday 21 January 2017, 7.00pm - 8.30pm

UEA Symphony Orchestra and Sacré Théâtre concert: Campus Concert

UEA Drama Studio (UEA campus)                                

Beethoven, Symphony No.5

Debussy/Louÿs, Les Chansons de Bilitis

 

UEA Symphony Orchestra and Sacré Théâtre warmly invite you to join them for a special campus-based concert on Saturday 21 January at 7.00pm in the UEA Drama Studio.

The concert will feature performances, by UEA Symphony Orchestra, of Beethoven’s celebrated Symphony No.5 and Debussy/Louÿs’ haunting Les Chansons de Bilitis.

A towering victory of will over adversity – Beethoven’s Symphony No.5 is the best known in the literature for its unyielding advocacy of the best that we can be. Come and experience this triumph of the human spirit at close quarters.

Sensuous and haunting, Louÿs’ Sapphic poetry and Debussy’s epigrammatic music combine to form a long-lost world, where the young woman Bilitis discovers the pleasures and the sadness of desire.

UEA Symphony Orchestra will be joined in their performance of Les Chansons de Bilitis, by the UK’s longest-running permanent French language theatre company, Sacré Théâtre.

Please note:

Doors open at 6.30pm

Seating is unreserved. Latecomers may not be admitted, so please arrive at the Studio in good time.

Elisabeth Frink: Humans and Other Animals

Sainsbury Centre, UEA

This autumn, the Sainsbury Centre will open a major new exhibition of Suffolk-born Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993).

Elisabeth Frink: Humans and Other Animals will reappraise one of the most important British sculptors of the twentieth century and feature over 130 works by the artist, making it the largest exhibition since her death in 1993.

Providing new perspectives on the key themes found in her work, Humans and Other Animals will examine her radical and bohemian beginnings in 1950s London and trace the evolution of her practice over four decades, as well as juxtaposing and connecting her work with that of contemporary artists, ancient art and other modern masters including Rodin, Picasso and Bourgeois.

The exhibition will explore Frink’s enduring preoccupation with human and animal forms and her fascination with the symbiotic relationship between them, used to express aspects of human behaviour.

UEA London Lectures 2019

Nutrition, brain vitality and dementia

Regent Street Cinema, 307 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW

An increase in life expectancy of two years every decade is a tremendous societal success story. ‘Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old’ and living longer does pose health challenges. In this presentation, UEA's Prof Anne-Marie Minihane will explore how optimised nutrition throughout life improves neurophysiological function and brain vitality, and explains how a Mediterranean-style dietary pattern (with associated attributes such as conviviality) rich in fish and fruits and vegetables has emerged as being particularly beneficial.

Can't make it to the event? The UEA London Lectures will be streamed live via the UEA Alumni Association Facebook page, and will be available to view on the UEA YouTube channel the following week.

UEA London Lectures 2019

Radio blips and blasts: pulsars and our understanding of the cosmos

Regent Street Cinema, 307 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW

Since their discovery in 1967, observations of pulsars – the incredibly dense, highly magnetic, rapidly rotating remnants of supernova explosions – have been used to increase our understanding in many areas of fundamental physics and astrophysics. In this lecture, UEA's Dr Robert Ferdman will discuss the state of astrophysics leading up to and including this momentous discovery, and how observation since then of these cosmic lighthouses has shed important light on our understanding of the Universe: from testing Einstein’s theories, to probing extreme conditions that we could never hope to reproduce on Earth.

Can't make it to the event? The UEA London Lectures will be streamed live via the UEA Alumni Association Facebook page, and will be available to view on the UEA YouTube channel the following week.
