Andre Rieu Shall We Dance

Andre Rieu Shall We Dance

André Rieu’s annual hometown Maastricht concerts attract fans from all corners of the globe. The medieval town square is transformed into a spectacular backdrop for unforgettable concerts filled with humour, fun and emotion for all ages – and, of course, magnificent music. This year’s theme is a dedication to the waltz.

The majestic waltz has been such an inspiration to André Rieu throughout his career that its three-four beat has become, in many ways, the rhythm of his life. From an international football match at Amsterdam stadium in 1995, when André filled the half-time interval with a performance of a classic waltz, to his Maastricht concerts of 2011, where André premiered ‘And The Waltz Goes On’, composed by Oscar-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins, this popular dance has often taken centre stage. André has composed many waltzes and since 1987, he and his Johann Strauss Orchestra have been delighting audiences all over the world with their magnificent renditions of classic waltzes.

Art & Mind

Art & Mind

Art & Mind explores the relationship between art and madness. The theme of madness inspired some of the most incredible painters in history, but mad people often experienced an unstoppable urge to create art too. Art & Mind also investigates how visionary and avant-garde artists sought to explore their unconscious mind as an inspiration for their art.

The theme of madness inspired artists since the Middle-Ages to create truly magnificent paintings: the “Stone of Madness” by Hieronymus Bosch and the Flemish Masters, the apocalyptic visions of Pieter Bruegel, compelling depictions of asylums by Goya and countless portraits of madness including Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Vincent Van Gogh’s Self Portrait with Bandaged Ear.

Art & Mind traces the advances in the understanding of the human mind and its influences on art. The emergence of the unconscious inspired Romantic artists to explore the hidden realms of dreams and visions in their art. Emerging psychology theories of Sigmund Freud and his contemporaries later became a major source of inspiration for the Surrealists.

The border between visionary creation and madness is sometimes tenuous, and many artists experienced bouts of madness. Van Gogh cut his own ear while confined in a psychiatric hospital, William Blake had conversations with dead poets, Goya was hearing voices and Munch was convinced of being condemned into madness since birth. Psychoanalyst Carl Jung went through a psychotic crisis resulting in the visionary images of The Red Book. The Surrealists Leonora Carrington, Unica Zürn and Antonin Artaud also spent time confined in asylums and captured their experiences of madness in their art.

Stories of outsider artists are just as inspiring, ranging from the 45-volumes magnum opus of Adolf Wölfli to the compelling portraits of schizophrenia by Bryan Charnley. Art & Mind unveils the history of Art Brut, from its foundations in the dark corners of Victorian asylums to being exhibited in the world’s finest galleries, museums and private collections.

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place?

Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years.

The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights.

Heavy Water

HEAVY WATER is the most intriguing surf film this year! It’s a doco, but views like an exciting action film about the wild antics of big wave legend Nathan Fletcher, also chronicling his relationships with the colourful, gritty characters of Hawaii’s North Shore. Nathan dreams of jumping out of a helicopter with a surfboard right onto a giant wave & surf it. Director Michael Oblowitz says: “We watch his dream comes true. He’s the only guy that’s been able to successfully do it – and he pulls it off. It’s mind blowing. I really wanted to show the roots of modern aerial surfing. Flying above the wave; tells the story of aerial surfing’s roots.”

The stunt is intriguing, & is backdrop for

highlighting pivotal points in surfing’s history, as experienced by one of the sport’s most prominent familys, pioneers of Oahu’s North Shore, sharing stories of the pursuit of their passion.

John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection

MMature Audiences

Using a trove of footage from the eighties, Julien Faraut’s doco shows John McEnroe battling his opponents and, above all, himself.

Narrated by Mathieu Amalric, JOHN MCENROE: IN THE REALM OF PERFECTION revisits the rich bounty of 16-mm-shot footage of the left-handed tennis star John McEnroe, at the time he was the world's top-ranked player, as he competes in the French Open in 1984.

Close-ups and slow motion sequences of McEnroe competing, highlight a "man who played on the edge of his senses." Far from a traditional documentary, Faraut probes the archival film to unpack both McEnroe's attention to the sport, creating a lively and immersive look at a driven athlete, a study on the sport of tennis and the human body and movement, and finally how these all intersect with cinema itself.

Here’s what people have said about JOHN MCENROE: IN THE REALM OF PERFECTION:

‘This is a sports documentary unlike any other, a beguiling and delightful piece of visionary non-fiction that uses its namesake to investigate the ontological nature of watching tennis.”

“..proving that sport itself can be fundamentally cinematic and ripe with psychological drama when documented in a manner outside of the traditional systems designed for live or television viewing.”

“Regardless of his enemy, the main event was McEnroe vs. McEnroe, in an unresolvable tiebreak of body and soul. There had been nothing like it, on public view, since the heyday of James Dean.”

“..at times the film feels like every character in a Wes Anderson movie got up and made a documentary on tennis.”

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.

SHOWTIME LUNCHEON is a favourite every month! Beginning with lunch & dessert in the garden then into the Theatre for a special one-off performance before a fabulous film!

For May, that is THE CHAPERONE, played by Elizabeth McGovern from Downtown Abbey. A charming true story set in the 1920’s around the beginning of the career of silent silver screen mega star Louise Brookes. But our interest is particularly in THE CHAPERONE who travels with Louise for her own reasons. An insightful look into the times.

Book early - does sell out.

encore screenings! This emotional & beautiful

story of the origin of Monet’s massive body of

Water Lily work speaks too, of an artist resurrecting his life through his gardening & painting, defying conventions in his timeless masterpieces.

country of France. He gave the people his

paintings as a symbol of peace, hope & resistance, in a battered & bloody world. They live on today, continuing to bring peace & joy.

Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mama Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him. With the door between his old life and his new closing, Jack will need to get back to where he once belonged and prove that all you need is love.
