Brighton Festival 2018

Gob Squad Web

ACCA will host and co-produce an eclectic and engaging mix of performance, film, music, and poetry during the month of May for Brighton Festival 2018.

Highlights include a film inspired by Cuckmere Haven, East Sussex, accompanied by an original orchestral score composed by the University of Sussex’s Head of Music, Professor Ed Hughes. ACCA’s Brighton Festival programme also boasts a major new production by internationally acclaimed arts collective Gob Squad, which has been developed at and co-commissioned by ACCA, with a range of national and international partners.

Laura McDermott, Creative Director, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, said, “The range of events taking place during Brighton Festival 2018 at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts exemplifies the diverse and multi-disciplinary nature of our programme, and its connection to the politics of the wider world.  This year, it includes a story set in the Russian Revolution, a discussion on environmentalism, and a selection of Lemn Sissay’s incredible poetry, spanning 30 years.  Commissioning new work is an important strand of what we do at ACCA, so we are delighted to be premiering Gob Squad’s Creation (Pictures of Dorian) to UK audiences, a work that was partially created in our building. We are also thrilled to be hosting the world premiere of Cuckmere: a Portrait, with music composed by one of the University of Sussex’s own academics.”

The programme is now on sale to members via the Brighton Festival website - you can buy tickets from us for our events from 23 February.
