Cirque du Soleil return to London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2020, bringing their dazzling luminous spectacle, LUZIA to Europe for the first time.
LUZIA takes you to an imaginary Mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul.
With a surrealistic series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of Mexico taken from both tradition and modernity.
Film Screening - Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall; The Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, SW7; Tuesday 28th Jan; 6:30pm; £16.50
Head to the Elgar Room, Royal Albery Hall for the UK premiere of Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall, an upcoming documentary film about the legendary rock photographer Jim Marshall.
Jim Marshall was a maverick with a camera, an outsider with attitude who captured the heights of rock ’n’ roll music and the seismic changes of an era. From the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix, Woodstock to the civil rights movement, Marshall’s wild side mixed with a compassionate eye led him to immortalise some of the most iconic moments of the 1960’s and 70’s.
Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall chronicles the infamous photographer’s life behind the camera.
“Marshall’s images are instantly recognisable, but the artist and man who created these iconic photographs is not as well known. With this documentary, I want to change that by giving Jim Marshall the recognition he deserves as one of the great chroniclers of music, culture and society of the twentieth century.” Alfred George Bailey – Director
Following the film screening, the audience will be invited to take part in a Q&A with director Alfred George Bailey
