In the Show – 1st April 2008

The Karin Weber gallery is currently showing “The Cell”, an exhibition of works by artist and former political prisoner Htein Lin, many pf them painted while he was incarcerated. Lin’s from Burma, also known as Myanmar. Not only does his imprisonment inform much of his art, it has also changed his life in unexpected ways.

As part of the Family Fiesta Series, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department is presenting “LaLaLuna”, the story of the moon’s caretaker and what he does when the moon goes out. Joining us in the studio is that caretaker, and the show’s creator and sole performer, Wolfe Bowart.

The movie “Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day” is based on a novel of the same name by Winifred Watson, which was originally published in 1938. It was reissued in the United Kingdom in 2000. The book became a bit of a cult, with one reviewer labelling it “the sweetest grown-up book in the world”. It’s the story of a governess, Miss Pettigrew, who falls on hard times, and then encounters a new world of glamour, and changes the life of the society woman she meets. Gary Pollard tells us more.

The Gurfinkel Clarinet Duo consists of outstanding fifteen-year-old clarinet players who just happen to be twin brothers. Born in Israel to a family of esteemed clarinet players, Daniel and Alexander Gurfinkel won the prestigious “maestro competition for young prodigies” at the first Israeli Competition for Woodwind Players at the age of nine. They join us in the studio and play a unique arrangement of Paganini’s Caprice No 24.
