Coronet International Festival at the Print Room

Sandra Giorgetti

Amongst the work presented as part of the Coronet International Festival are 15 UK premières spanning theatre, art, circus, dance, poetry and installations.

Print Room artistic director and curator said, “the Coronet International Festival is a month-long embodiment of our venue’s ambitions and vision. The eclectic nature of the programme gives audiences the chance to discover diverse art forms from innovative artists and provides a meeting place for those artists to exchange ideas.

"Never before has our Notting Hill home presented so many world premières. The building is buzzing with anticipation and we can’t wait to welcome new audiences, and a wealth of new work, to our theatre.”

Theatre performances include:

  • Controversial Chinese-Swiss poet Yang Lian presenting a selection of extracts from his autobiographical work accompanied by cellist Sophie Harris and choreographer Hubert Essakow.
  • French actor Jerome Kircher in Laurent Seksik’s adaptation of Stefan Zweig’s The World of Yesterday, a UK première in French with English surtitles.
  • Ma which looks at the life of director, poet and writer Pier Paolo Pasolini whose work—often dealing with sexual taboos—courted much controversy and who was brutally murdered in 1975.
  • the award-winning production Hannah and Martin from Dutch theatre company mugmetdegoudentand, a 1920s set story inspired by the real-life secret love affair between the Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt and her teacher, the Nazi Martin Heidegger.

Coronet International Festival runs from 25 October to 30 November at Print Room At The Coronet.
