A painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war - Pablo Picasso From Picasso's Guernica to the poems of Wilfred Owen, Homer's epics to the photography of Robert Capa, artists have always exposed, and responded to armed conflict. Taking an innovative and varied approach to the commemoration of conflicts with a broad programme of commissions, the Molino Group's Residency asks questions about how we come to terms with conflicts as humans and artists now, and how we respond: is art ever more than a panacea? Can it be a weapon? These questions ring out in November of the WW1 centenary year. Accompanying the main show, [Roland: a collage], other performances and events will include: reviving DESERT, our play about Chelsea Manning, WikiLeaks whistleblower; a new one man play exploring one man's experience in contemporary conflict, Much Further Out Than You Thought; a curated visual art exhibition in the Bike Shed Theatre Bar; scratch performances from emerging SW companies New Model Theatre and Squiffy Cabaret. There will also be music, including a closing 'Blitz' Party, as well as a special, soon-to-be-announced performance on 11th November.
