Opening of two new sculptures at East Ham Nature Reserve.

Opening of two new sculptures at East Ham Nature Reserve.

Red Door Studios and East Ham Nature Reserve have teamed up in order to create two site specific artworks in response to the natural environment. The sculptures have been made by 2 local artists, Ilsa Colsell and Liz Clough and are made using natural and recycled materials.

We invite the local community to come and view the sculptures and meet the artists at:

East Ham nature reserve
1 Norman Road
E6 6HN

7pm - 9pm
Friday 27th July.

A little detail about the artists and works:

Ilsa Colsell is an artist and writer, living and working in London.

Her projects include sculpture, photography and text works, which look to collage and to the stage as a site for exploring multiple layers in a single visual plane.

Introducing groupings of flat, upright surfaces, made of wood and fabric to the landscape of the nature reserve, the works will suggest the stage flats used to mark out and backdrop scenes in a stage play. The flats internal supporting structure built around the stones, bracing themselves to stand, will form a new layer of convergence in the space; covering, revealing and drawing attention to them at the same time. Through this open process of assemblage, the stones will remain partially visible; their physical, provisional construction exposed by moving around and approaching the sculpture from different paths around the clearing.

Liz Clough is a painter, designer and maker based at Red Door Studios.

In a natural environment the phase of decay is as important as the phase of growth. All parts of the cycle are equally necessary and therefore there is no waste. Balance and symmetry are in abundance and this is what makes the natural world so beautiful. A willow circle, suspended represents this. It also references the circle as an ancient symbol used throughout history to represent totality, wholeness, the infinite and all cyclic movement.

This event is a part of East Ham Arts Festival and is supported by Newham council.

Red Door Studios hosts the first ever edition of Red Door Kabaret. Prepare to be excited, entertained and seduced.......

On March 29th 2018, Red Door Studios hosts the first ever edition of Red Door Cabaret. A number of London's most eminent underworld performers band together to bring some panache to East Ham... We are very lucky to have these performers in our midst; indeed the only reason this is happening is because they live just a stone's throw away, and friends of The Red Door and it would be rude not to. Join us for one hell of a night.

RED DOOR GIF.gif

Featuring:

ELLIS & ROSE

Anarchic, award-winning comedy double-act, Ellis & Rose are known for hosting their raucous Brainwash Club in London - which has featured the likes of Harry Hill, Reg D Hunter, Omid Djalili and Phil Kay to name just a few.

They are Malcolm Hardee Award winners. London Cabaret Award nominees. New Act of the Year 2018 finalists.

'The best double-act I've seen in years' - Harry Hill

'All the powerhouse aggression of 1980s era Ade Edmonson and Rik Mayall' - Chortle

'High energy, innovative stuff from two entertaining, engaging guys' - The Scotsman

SIR FREDERICK SNOW

Enfant terrible of the London cabaret scene. Kunst frontman extraordinaire and mighty feisty maestro. Fred has performed all over the world, on six different continents with such acts as Nile Rodgers and Chic, Kid Creole, Brian Ferry, Jessie J and Buena Vista Social Club... and now he comes to East Ham.

'A terrible man' - Ellis & Rose

TOM BAKER

An accordionist, ventriloquist and a menace. Tom has been a major player on the London cabaret scene for many years, is known for having a multitude of strings to his bow and is part of The Black Cat Cabaret, which won 'Best Production' at the London Cabaret Awards 2014. 


MOLLY BETH MOROSSA

Molly Beth Morossa creates cabaret acts like no other. Not a hint of a nipple tassel to be found, her pieces are theatrical narratives designed to appeal to the discerning cabaret aficionado and those new to the art form alike. Each piece portrays an individual character, and most importantly, tells a story - each act like a physical, visual fairy tale...

From human crows to split-personality harlequins, murderous tangos to vampire wakes, each act must
"be seen to be believed." - Dark Chat.
