ALICE FORMERLY OF WONDERLAND:

The wacky tales and enjoyable but terrible crimes that created our most beloved Alice. Told through the medium of high-level Aerial, Acrobatics and physical theatre; Here she is, Alice.

Years of show biz, and life in the limelight, a timeless story and endless adventure, however, time is getting on and those adventures have taken a toll. Alice can’t always portray that youthful innocence, as she lets slip her grooming routines, the stubble starts to show, makeup needs to be slapped on even thicker… and as the millennial kids care more about fortnight and interactive worlds, Alice, formerly of wonderland, currently slips ever more out of the limelight and tells us in an animated autobiographical way, the truth of her adventures and how she wound up here, no longer a star on the Hollywood boulevard, or London’s West End, but at the Acorn Theatre, Penzance.

So now, brought to you from the creative minds of five insanely talented circus artists. Their twist on the old fairy tale will have you in stitches whilst simultaneously astounding you with their inventive circus tricks, towers and tumbles.

The Trouble Notes

The Trouble Notes

Sunday 19th June 2022
8:00 pm

Tickets: £13 Advance £15 Door

To understand the story of TheTroubleNotes, one must understand the story of our world. In an effort to reduce cultural barriers, TheTroubleNoteshave made it their mission to create their own cultural universe, mixing influences from all over the world into their songs.The emotional, pan-cultural music of the group, forms personal memories into a colorful melting pot of different traditions, touching on deep and complex stories of the human condition and social experiences. Having grown up in different countries with different traditions, they each bring a unique perspective to life and music that helps self-serve as a reminder that their brand of fusion can show unity in diversity.
The Berlin-based trio is composed of violinist Bennet Cerven, guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt, and percussionist Oliver Maguire. Hailing from different countries, each member of the group brings a different musical training and perspective to the band.
Bennet, a classically trained violinist born in Chicago, began his violin playing at 4 years old. While he was performing in orchestras and winning prizes in soloist competitions, his love for hip-hop and alternative genres helped shape his mind as a composer.An avid history lover and academic, Bennet first conceived the original compositions out of a desire to travel and a lust for adventure to faraway lands.
Oliver was born into a family of rock and roll. His father was the tour manager of Motorhead for many years and the late Phil Taylor began teaching Olly the drums from a young age. He grew up in a very diverse area of west London and was surrounded by friends who exposed him to the rhythmic styles of ethnic musicians from all over the world. Florian began learning the guitar in his early teenage years in Braunschweig, Germany. A love for classic rock and the contemporary indie bands of his youth urged him to express himself with his instrument. He has since been influenced by some of the best rhythmic guitarists the likes of Rodrigo y Gabriela, John Butler, and Tommy Emanuel.
Their music is characterized by emotionally driven, instrumental ballads reflecting pan-cultural influences and blending an eclectic fusion of traditions, to create a truly unique sound; representative of their extensive travels and consequent musical development. The group has achieved success and wide acclaim for past releases, with their previous EP Soundtracks from the Street reaching the Top 5 in USA iTunes charts for Latin & World Music.
Videos of their performances have been viewed more than 100 million times on social media. They have scored multiple films including Als Paul über das Meer kam and Carracci: La Rivoluzione Silenziosa.
They have performed live on Television in the United States and Canada, and radio formats in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. In 2019 they toured with Rodrigo y Gabriela, opening for them as a part of their European Mettavolution tour.
Everyone that joins the universe of TheTroubleNotesremains a part of it, and often morphs from a normal concertgoer into a true Troublemaker-sharing in the journey of the group. They pride themselves on their ability to use modern solutions to maintain a very real and humanistic way of life. Using a blend of digital platforms, they have built a worldwide audience by allowing intimate access into their lives and keeping a personal relationship with many of their fans. Their audience ultimately plays a role in the very creation of music by serving as cultural influencers and story-givers for their worldly compositions.
TheTroubleNoteslive a never-ending adventure traveling and telling the stories of people and places through their music.

Flamenco Fusions

Flamenco dance and multi-media show by Claudia Caolín Dance & Entertainment.

This special evening of theatre consists of six distinct pieces, each featuring an innovative fusion with the traditional Spanish art-form of Flamenco, ranging from the classical to the uniquely contemporary, and from the beautifully romantic to the surreally hilarious.  The multiple styles of Flamenco will serve as an artistic structure for these creative cross-genre pieces, thereby taking the audience on a kaleidoscopic journey through the versatility of modern Flamenco art.

In this show, there’s only one thing you can be sure of: you will be surprised!

Over the course of the evening, Claudia Caolín will be joined in two pieces by the wonderful Flamenco dancer Aneta Skut, with whom she collaborated on the 2019 production Flamenco Para Siempre, as well as Claudia’s advanced and talented student Helena Cicmil, who will have her long-awaited stage debut in this production. The dancers are accompanied by Bristol-based Flamenco Loco, consisting of the stunning virtuoso Jamie Cuthbertson (Cuffy) on guitar, and the tremendously versatile and skilful singer Jaime Cantera, who have worked with Claudia Caolín in numerous productions.

Alongside its contemporary ambition, the evening strives to capture the pathos, drama, colour, and excitement inherent within the experience of Flamenco.

The Emerald Dawn return to The Acorn

The Emerald Dawn return to The Acorn

Saturday 2nd July 2022
8:00 pm

Tickets: £10 Advance |£12 Door

With music that is ‘as epic and as beautiful as it is possible to get’ (Scream Magazine), THE EMERALD DAWN return to The Acorn after making huge waves in the British progressive rock scene over the past year, having gone down a storm at Prog for Peart, Fusion Festival, A New Day Festival, A Sunday in September (London), and Summer’s End Progressive Rock Festival. Not surprising, then, that the band came sixth in Prog Magazine’s Readers’ Poll for the Best Unsigned Band of 2021. Tony Colvill of The Progressive Aspect chose The Emerald Dawn’s 2021 album, ‘To Touch the Sky’, as his album of the year, as did Jim Lawson of Progzilla Radio. Also in 2021 The Prog Mind ranked their bass player tenth in the world, and in 2017 ranked their keyboard player seventh and their guitarist sixth in the world.

The Emerald Dawn are a multi-instrumentalist, symphonic progressive rock quartet, who combine elements from classical music, jazz and rock to produce their own original, distinctive and exciting sound—a sound that is cinematic, experimental and powerful. Usually haunting, often stunningly melodic and always highly atmospheric, the music of The Emerald Dawn paints images or tells stories that stimulate the imagination and takes the listener on unforgettable musical journeys.

The band comprises Tree Stewart (keyboards, flute, acoustic guitar and vocals), Ally Carter (guitar, saxophones, keyboards, and vocals), David Greenway (fretless and fretted bass guitars) and Tom Jackson (drums). The Emerald Dawn will be performing compositions from their four studio albums. And their return to The Acorn will be a very special one, as it is Ally Carter’s 70th Birthday Bash.

‘Often gorgeous and sometimes transcendent…potent pastoral-tinged prog flows from the stage.’ Gary Mackenzie, Prog Magazine
