Ivo Graham: Motion Sickness
Plus Support from Jake Lambert
A feisty new hour about facing the future, named after my fourth favourite Hot Chip song (and a beaut by Phoebe Bridgers). As seen/heard on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Live From The BBC, Jon Richardson’s Ultimate Worrier, Fighting Talk, The Now Show, It’s Not What You Know, and eating Subway sandwiches in petrol stations.
“Endlessly amusing hour from the politest man in comedy” (****, the i).
“Not an ounce of flab on his routines… a joy” (****, Telegraph).
“A self-deprecating dweeb par excellence, on the brink of comedy’s Premier League” (****, Evening Standard).
The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers. Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snowflakes. The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.
