London Exhibition – Nick Cave: Chasing The Myth

August 30, 2014 1 comment

If you are lucky enough to live in London or visit it in the next few weeks, I have another exhibition for you: Nick Cave – Chasing The Myth.

Proud Galleries is delighted to present Nick Cave: Chasing The Myth, a collection of iconic portraits of the enigmatic front man that span his extraordinary, eccentric and eclectic musical career. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to look back into the shadows of one of today’s most transfixing performers.

Bringing together both iconic and unseen shots from David Corio, Andrew Whitton, Steve Double, David Arnoff and Amelia Troubridge: photographers whom each worked with Nick Cave at different stages of his artistic development, the exhibition is a revealing and intimate portrait of one of rock’s few singular personalities who speaks so truly from the heart. From shots by Corio of early intense onstage performances in London while fronting his incendiary band The Birthday Party, to more subdued moments during the filming of 20,000 Days on Earth by Troubridge showing Cave’s obsessive need to create; each photographer’s unique portraiture adds to the rich narrative, encompassing the many characters which collectively make Nick Cave, one of the most revered artistic talents of the last three decades.

From September 3rd till November 2n 2014 at Proud Galleries Camden, The Horse Hospital, The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AH.

Folks, this compilation is a wonder and a  delight. With its high-quality instrumentation, this album ain’t just for babies.  Immediate favorites: “Straight to You”, “(Are You) The One That I’ve Been Waiting For”, and the ethereal “Push The Sky Away”.  The most surprising inclusion is the gently sonorous, “Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!”.  Wonderful stuff.  Appropriate for listening at work, on your way to class, while meditating, preparing dinner, to clear your mind after an über krap day, or any time you want to bring a little sunshine into your head. When I go to bed tonight, my ear buds will be twinkling with Lullaby Versions of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

La Monnaie presents: Shell Shock (libretto by Nick Cave)

April 16, 2014 2 comments

Royal Opera House – La Monnaie, Brussels

In the 2014-2015 season La Monnaie will be presenting three very differing projects: Shell Shock, Medúlla and Creation 2015. Nick Cave wrote the libretto for the opera creation Shell Shock, Björk lent us her music for Medúlla, the first intergenerational project in La Monnaie, and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is making her new dance performance Creation 2015 to music from Brian Eno. These performances unite music, performance and beauty of the highest level.

Shell Shock is a war story in which soldiers, mothers, prisoners and lost souls take the leading roles. With ‘choreographer of the year’ Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui directing, this performance is guaranteed to be a high point in the planned commemorations for the Great War.

NOTE: Early Birds: best seats will be on sale from Saturday 12 April to Saturday 26 April.
