A Night on Bourbon Street – New Orleans Mardi Gras

Prepare to experience New Orleans and Mardi Gras.

Professor Cunningham and his Old School are renowned as one of the top bands of the International Swing scene. The group has garnered a strong following both in their hometown, New York City and globally since they began five years ago.

Their brand of swinging and grooving repertoire deeply tied to the New Orleans tradition; from early jazz to early R&B reminiscent of Fats Waller, Professor Longhair, Sidney Bechet, and even Fats Domino! Leading the critically-acclaimed group, "Professor" Adrian Cunningham is an Australian born New York- based musician and vocalist. The group has been winning accolades everywhere as winners of the international swing band competition World Jam in Madrid, besting other bands to win Best Band, Best Horn Section and Best Rhythm Section.

The Professor will be creating a unique one night show of sheer undiluted New Orleans Jazz. The show is right on the heels of Mardi Gras over in New Orleans!!

The Professor keeps a demanding international schedule. He has graced the top Jazz Festivals and Swing Events including Sopot Molo Jazz Festival (Poland) Snowball (Sweden), Smokey Feet (Netherlands), Blue Note Jazz Festival (NYC), Barswingona (Barcelona), Smokey Feet (Amsterdam), Swing Crash (Italy), Albany Jazz Festival, Melbourne International Jazz Festival (Australia), Copenhagen Lindy Exchange (Denmark), and NY Hot Jazz Festival (US).

NTL: I'm Not Running (E)

I'm Not Running is an electrifying new play by David Hare (Skylight), debuting at the National Theatre and filmed live for moviegoers.

Pauline Gibson has dedicated her life to being a doctor as well as the motivating leader of a local health campaign. When she sees her old boyfriend, coincidentally a fierce loyalist in Labour Party politics, she has to make a painful decision.

Will you sacrifice your personal life and your quiet existence for something beyond a single issue? Will she be bold enough to try?

Hare has been described as ‘the premiere political dramatist writing in English'. His other notable work has been broadcast. Works such as Pravda and Skylight cement his status as a premier playwright.

Catch the play from March 3 – 6 at Home of the Arts.

Water Lilies of Monet: The Magic of Water and Light

Take an exciting expedition through the works of art and emotions of the incomparable Impressionist, Monet.

When Claude Monet won over the depression that had led him to leave painting behind, he surrendered himself body and soul to his most magnificent undertaking: The Grand Décoration. Huge panels represent his beloved water lily pond, so immense as it wraps around the room that the viewer's gaze is immersed in an environment of serenity and tranquillity.

This brand new and profoundly detailed art film allows us to glimpse what inspired Monet to resume his work and to create such an amazing and memorable work of beauty.

Follow the River Seine on a visually stunning journey from La Havre to Giverny and Paris. See critical moments in the life of the world's most respected painter. With breathtaking accuracy and access to some of his greatest masterpieces, marvel the beauty and magnitude of Monet's work.

The film includes special guest stars actress Elisa Lasowski of Game of Thrones fame, with the special participation of Ross King, author of the best seller Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies.
