Following explorations of Soft Machine and King Crimson, the latest project from the DSQ follows in the imaginary footsteps of David Bowie and his Berlin Years. The music explores and re-visits the period when Bowie experimented with the ambient world of Brian Eno, free improvisation, and the minimalist works of the classical composer, Philip Glass. Project Flicks presents a selection of short films accompanied by music performed live by DSQ. The International films chosen cover a wide period of classic cinema, from the early black and white movies, newsreel footage from the ‘Prelinger Archives’, an Oscar winning Parisian classic, and a brand new commission from Australia, based on the relationship of ‘Brian & Banksy’ (a budgie and a dog!). Through the ‘prism’ of live film, the DSQ has commissioned new scores which will engage, enthral and delight, opening up a freshness of discovery for inquisitive minds from age 8 to 108.

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Cynthia Rosenzweig who is a Senior Research Scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the co-located Columbia University Earth Institute’s Center for Climate Systems Research as our keynote speaker at the 2019 Gregory Lecture. Dr. Rosenzweig's lecture will look at framing the production, delivery, and consumption of food as a system is an important approach to address complex issues related to climate change, land use, food security, and human health. The function of the food system is to deliver food security for all people at all times, with minimal environmental impact. This can be achieved through both supply-side and demand-side climate change interventions. Improving the functioning of the food system can therefore directly contribute to attaining both human and planetary health. Drivers of and responses to climate change in regard to food production, delivery, and consumption will play an increasingly significant role in ensuring sustainable food security. Many aspects of food security are affected by observed and projected climate changes, including food access, utilization, and price stability. At the same time, food systems are drivers of climate change and mitigation due to their role in greenhouse gas emissions, carbon sequestration, changes in albedo of the land surface, and regional hydrological impacts. The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) is contributing to the food system approach through global and regional assessments of supply and demand, for example, analyzing the effects of climate change mitigation on food security.

Unconstrained by limitations and conventions, Norwegian composer and tuba player Daniel Herskedal has earned a reputation as a musician who has pushed his instrument’s boundaries technically and sonically and who creates spellbinding and mesmerically beautiful music. Following the release of his first album, Slow Eastbound Train in 2015, Herskedal toured throughout Europe. His follow up, The Roc, prompted critics to praise the wide mix of influences from folk, jazz, classical and Arabic sources, while national broadcaster France Musique described the group as one of the most unique and innovative small ensembles. His third album Voyage emerges as his most defining album yet, merging awe-inspiring beauty with a refreshingly original sound.

A small village in rural Ireland is turned upside down when a major Hollywood film studio descends to make a historical blockbuster on location. The story is told through the eyes of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, employed as extras along with numerous other locals. As cultures clash, it becomes clear that Tinseltown’s romanticized dream of Ireland is a long, long way from reality. Just two talented actors brilliantly bring to life a multitude of extraordinary characters, ranging from the spoilt American starlet to the English director and the village old timer. Often hysterically funny, thought-provoking and witty, this wonderful comedy has won numerous awards including both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy, as well as three Tony nominations on Broadway. Stones in his Pockets ran for four years in the West End and has delighted audiences around the world. “Triumphant, fast, brilliant and hilarious” - Independent “An unequivocal source of joy, laughter, tears and delight” - Daily Mail “A moving and heartfelt tribute to the imaginative power of live performance” - Guardian “Has a rare theatrical kick… I envy those catching it for the first time” - Daily Telegraph “Very Irish and very funny” - Irish Times “A gem..funny and engrossing. A delight from beginning to end” - Daily Express “A wonderfully enjoyable evening” - Independent “I was delirious with joy” - News of the World “A hilarious tearjerker..thoroughly recommended” - Mail on Sunday “Magical” - Guardian “Not to be missed” - Sunday Telegraph

Which side of the fence are you on? Every story has two sides, and so does every wall. We’re in a new era of tribalism and the barricades are going up. Money, race, religion, politics: these are the things that divide us. Trump’s wall says as much about America’s divided past as it does its future. The Great Firewall of China separates ‘us’ from ‘them’. In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself. Tim Marshall was Diplomatic Editor and foreign correspondent for Sky News. After thirty years’ experience in news reporting and presenting, he left full time news journalism to concentrate on writing and analysis. Author of the international bestseller Prisoners Of Geography, Tim joins us with his new book, Divided: Why We’re Living in an Age of Walls. Covering China; the USA; Israel and Palestine; the Middle East; the Indian Subcontinent; Africa; Europe and the UK, in this gripping talk Tim delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines that will shape our world for years to come.

Which project management environment is more likely to achieve sustainable competitive advantage?
By 2027 employers will need 87.7 million individuals working in project orientated roles. It is anticipated that the competence gap could result in a loss of US$207.9 billion in GDP (11 countries analysed) throughout 2027 (PMI, 2017). The 2017 APM study suggest that only 22% of projects wholly met their original objectives, while 87% rated competent project teams critical/very important and 88% said effective governance was important. Both are highest ranked in terms of importance as success factors (APM, 2017). Worryingly, research continues to demonstrate that organisations are failing to deliver successful project outcomes. Project management, as an industry led disciple, still lacks some of the academic rigour in conceptualised approaches - with team competence, decision making and governance aspects being critical to project success. This seminar will give you some practical guidelines in merging the knowledge-based view of strategy and project management to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage for your organisation.

The internationally renowned Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwals present a special evening of majestic and entrancing Sufi music. Drawing on a rich vein of Islamic and Sufi poetry, Qawwali is a form of Sufi devotional music from the Indian subcontinent and Rizwan-Muazzam come from a direct family line of spiritual Qawwali singers that spans five centuries. Continuing the legacy of their legendary Uncle, Qawwali maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rizwan-Muazzam are the contemporary torchbearers of this rich musical tradition and were tutored by the master himself. The sacred Qawwali music they perform is intoxicating and entrancing to all who witness it, whether a scholar of Sufi music or completely new to the form. Performing together since the late 1990s, the brothers have developed a devoted worldwide following with their exceptional live shows and acclaimed albums, including A Better Destiny and Days of Colour. Recent highlights have included performances at the Commonwealth Games, Australia, and an exciting new collaboration with Susheela Raman in Abu Dhabi. The group have also been working on new material, so you can expect new music alongside Qawwali classics, as Rizwan-Muazzam continue to push the boundaries of the genre. Their imaginative reinterpretation of classic Sufi texts breathes fresh life into this rich centuries old tradition. Presented in association with Asian Arts Agency

Trumpeter Eric Vloeimans is one of the stars of the vibrant and highly creative Dutch (indeed, entire European) jazz scene, a musician who works across a wide range of music styles having studied classical trumpet at the Rotterdam Academy of Music and jazz in New York with Blue Note label legend Donald Byrd. For his latest project, Oliver’s Cinema (an anagram of Eric’s name), he joins forces with Belgian accordionist Tuur Florizoone and German cellist Jörg Brinkmann. In this unusual combination they perform music written for film as well as music with a cinematic quality, ranging from Ennio Morricone soundtracks and the themes from Rosemary’s Baby and Cinema Paradiso, to new compositions for imaginary films. It’s a lovely album by the way, beautifully atmospheric and full of old movie themes and compatible original material that lend themselves to café bar jazz that make you want to spend a weekend getting lost somewhere in the Low Countries eating ridiculous amounts of mussels, counting craft beers, and watching old episodes of Van Der Valk.

1930s England. Darlington Hall runs like clockwork under one of the last truly great butlers. Reserved and dutiful like his father before him and with the funny and forthright housekeeper Kenton by his side, Stevens faithfully serves his employer. Meanwhile, England stands on a precipice, as fascism builds and boils in Europe. 20 years later, Stevens travels to find an old friend, remembering choices made and not made, journeying to one last chance at happiness. 2017 Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel, which became a beloved Merchant Ivory film, is a story for anyone who has ever been afraid to follow their heart. Now transformed into an exquisite stage play by one of Britain's most exciting writers (Barney Norris), it receives its world premiere at Royal & Derngate before embarking on a major national tour.

Musicians from Northumberland, Scotland, Ireland and England invoke the dark, powerful, shamanic sounds of Ancient Northumbria. Their inspiration comes from the wild, dramatic, weather-bitten countryside along Hadrian’s Wall, which seems so quintessentially Northumbrian…and yet, almost 2000 years ago that same landscape was inhabited by people from around the world, worshipping different gods and following different customs. Kathryn Tickell and The Darkening embrace that global perspective, bringing some of the oldest Northumbrian tunes and songs throbbing to life, intermingling them with new material and binding it all together with contemporary resonance and attitude.

Misha Glenny is an Award-winning journalist and author, his international bestselling book, McMafia, was recently turned into the hit BBC TV series of the same name. Glenny has spent years courageously investigating and reporting on the most dangerous and sophisticated organised crime networks around the world. Alternately very funny and very frightening, Misha Glenny lifts the lid on global organised crime and its corrupt political networks. The show is a factual illuminating talk that sheds light on corrupt intelligence agencies and takes the audience on a tour through the dark depths of world capitalism. He explains what’s happening behind the headlines – how Russian gangsters, Latin American cartel leaders, people traffickers and dodgy hedge funders exert their influence on our lives without us realising it and how cyber hackers pose an increasing threat to global security in the 21st century. This is a rare opportunity to hear a true expert take you into the minds of his underworld subjects and as executive producer and script consultant on the TV series, a chance to discover what it took to bring his extraordinary cast of characters to life on the small screen.

Following over two years of uncertainty, division and discussion, most are hoping that 2019 is the year that will bring some clarity over Brexit so that opportunities can be maximised and issues minimised in whatever your field. The previous Brexit events run by Southampton Business School have been enlightened by those in attendance presenting their personal ‘state-of-play’ and everybody getting a feel for the professional needs for others.

Whether or not the UK has actually left the European Union by the time of this event, this will be a review of the what the current position is for those in the business community, the events and strong feelings that inform the current position and debate, finally what people want to see in the immediate future for their businesses and careers. Input will be provided by experienced figures in local business and academia and there will be opportunity to take a ‘pulse’ of those in attendance and ask what their concerns or opportunities are.

Designing chemicals, discovering new drugs, discovering materials and indeed all aspects of scientific discovery are all tasks that are highly data driven, and semantic web technologies are key to enabling researchers to deal with high levels of data in a useful and meaningful way. Semantic technologies facilitate representing data in a formal, structured, and interoperable way, and enable data to be reasoned over to infer potential relationships. In this workshop we seek to explore the ways in which semantic web technologies can be used to drive predictions in chemical design, including using Machine Learning and other AI techniques to exploit semantic links in knowledge graphs and linked datasets. There will be several keynote talks, an expert panel chaired by Professor Jeremy Frey, and a chance for breakout discussions. Lunch will be provided and the day will end with networking drinks.

Lawrence Power concludes his first year as Turner Sims Associate Artist with an evening of emotive 19th-century chamber music by Brahms, presented on the composer’s birth date. He performs Brahms’ viola and violin sonatas with Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, making his second appearance of the season, and who in 2012 won one of the world’s most prestigious piano prizes, the Honens International Piano Competition. Brahms loved the sonorous sounds of the viola, and shortly after submitting a series of clarinet sonatas to his publisher, he offered versions written for viola to be published at the same time. The composer’s three violin sonatas, written between 1878 and 1886, are seductively lyrical, from the G major with its famous ‘raindrop’ final movement to the complex, eerie D minor.

Formed 20 years ago, by legendary guitarist John Etheridge to celebrate the work of the 20th century’s greatest jazz violinist Stéphane Grappelli, with whom he toured the world for five years, Sweet Chorus is a band that revels in melodic, swinging acoustic jazz. The partnership of John Etheridge and Christian Garrick has been described as One of the most potent combinations in European Jazz (Jazzwise) and the rhythm team of Dave Kelbie and Andy Crowdy the Rolls Royce and Jaguar of rhythm sections. The music is inspired by the classic sounds of Django Reinhardt and Grappelli, whose legendary partnership galvanised European Jazz. Expect a dazzling and varied mixture of standards, American swing, Latin American and original compositions played with wit, humour and virtuosity, alongside affectionate and often funny reminiscences of John’s time with Grappelli – a man who was eccentric, inspired, and highly individual.

Prime Minister: I never sleep much. Queen: Oh dear. I like the idea of any person with the power to start a nuclear war being rested. For 60 years, the Queen has met her Prime Minister every week. An audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties agree never to repeat what is said. Not even to their spouses. What is discussed? What secrets are shared? Does her Majesty have her favourites? Sometimes intimate, often confessional, occasionally explosive, The Audience imagines the private moments that define a changing Britain. One head of state. Endless heads of government. This play asks where the real power lies.

But before she can hit send, her girlfriend Fiona reveals that he has always identified as a man and now wants to start living as one named Adrian. As Adrian begins his transition, Alice must face a question she never thought she'd ask... does this mean she's straight?

Sometimes, one supergroup comes along that really is very special indeed. Assembled by award-winning jazz pianist Nikki Iles, and brought together by their collective love of song, The Printmakers’ music defies category and sets out to cross the boundaries that traditionally separate jazz, folk and the contemporary music world. Their 2015 release on Basho Records, Westerly, was received with huge critical acclaim. In the old days, this band would have had the words ‘All-Stars’ in their name. Every one of them is a leading figure in British contemporary jazz… It’s remarkable how just five instruments and voice can suggest space and depth as they do. The Observer It struck me, listening to Nikki Iles’ Printmakers band that if the British Council or whoever wanted to share with the world the jazz of this country, then this would be the ideal band. It feels like the most modern and vital vehicle for all those essential core qualities of the best British jazz. The Jazz Breakfast

The first of two recitals (the second coming in October as part of the Autumn 2019 season) by Angela Hewitt, the outstanding Bach pianist of her generation (The Sunday Times) surveying the composer’s complete English Suites. Although it is not clear why they have come to be known as ‘English’, these earliest of Bach’s keyboard suites – firmly in the French style – show off the composer’s versatility, writing in the dance idioms of several countries. The incomplete Suite in F Minor, its courtly prelude and richly textured sarabande culminating in a short gigue, follows the English Suites, and the programme ends with the stormy, unpredictable Prelude and Fugue in A Minor.

In this, the 60th Anniversary of one of the world's most iconic music venues, the Ronnie Scott's All Stars take to the road to celebrate the 'Ronnie Scott's Story'. Direct from London’s world-famous jazz club and combining world class live jazz alongside rare archive photos and video footage, The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, take you on a guided, musical tour of this music institution. Set amongst the dive bars and jazz jook joints of London’s Soho, we hear about the desperate hand-to-mouth finances of the early years and the frequent police raids. We hear how Ronnie's became neutral ground within rife gang territory and their scrapes with gangsters including the Krays who were rumoured to have taken Ronnie and Pete “for a little drive”! Life at Ronnie’s is evocatively re-imagined through tales of the club’s past visitors, from pop stars, film stars and politicians to comedians and royalty, but above all, the musicians. Featuring classic music from the jazz greats who have performed at Ronnie Scott’s, projected images and footage, and tales of old Soho, miscreant musicians and police raids, ‘The Ronnie Scott’s Songbook’ is a glimpse into this unique world and its incredible history. Hosted and performed by the award-winning Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, led by the Club’s Musical Director, this is a unique evening celebrating the music and history of Ronnie Scott’s and is a must for any music fan. ‘Outstanding players. For poise, balance and swing they’re a joy to listen to’- The Observer ‘Full-on brilliance’ - The Guardian

One day. Six cities. A thousand stories. For generations, African men have gathered in barber shops. Sometimes they have haircuts, sometimes they listen, more often than not they talk. Barber shops are confession boxes, political platforms, preacher-pulpits and football pitches... places to go for unofficial advice, and to keep in touch with the world. Fuel has produced Inua Ellams’ work for theatre since his debut play nine years ago. Barber Shop Chronicles is a heart-warming, hilarious and insightful play, set in Johannesburg, Harare, Kampala, Lagos, Accra and London. The play invites the audience into a uniquely masculine environment where the banter may be barbed, but the truth always telling. The barbers of these tales are sages, role models and father figures, they are the glue that keeps men together. ★★★★★ "Joyous piece of theatre" Independent ★★★★★ The Stage
