Brother Prepare To Party explores the familiar and the unfamiliar. Using a minimalistic style with a big kick, an original soundscape and writing the performance presents the night life scene of a small student town to the audience. The only option for release is a tiny club up some winding stairs above an old arcade. Here in this recreated space the performance attempts at answering some questions: How can one let themselves go? What is one seeking on a night out? How does someone fit in or stand out from a crowd? Why is there a binge drink culture in the UK and why do our generation do it? Can a social space become a place which means home? A moment of a night. When all emotions are heightened. But fun and dancing are always on the cards.

Festival of ideas: Åsne Seierstad – One of Us: The Story of Anders Breivik and the Massacre in Norway @ At Bristol // Weds 27th May (6.15-7.15pm) // Cost: £7/£6
On 22 July 2011, Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 of his fellow Norwegians in a terrorist atrocity that shocked the world. Many were teenagers, just beginning their adult lives. In the devastating aftermath, the inevitable questions began. How could this happen? Why did it happen? And who was Anders Breivik?
Award-winning foreign correspondent Åsne Seierstad has spent years writing about people caught up in violent conflict. Now, for the first time, she examines her home country. Her work is based on Breivik’s statements and writings, as well as police records and interviews with people involved in the murder spree, as victims or relatives of victims.
That Brevik had a dangerous imagination is clear. But to what extent can we separate him from the ideas that fed him?
