Events on Dukes Lane
Following the latest government guidance on when lockdown restrictions can be eased, events will take place online, in unusual outdoor pop up locations and from 17th May, live performances will open for socially distanced audiences in venues across the city.
Yolk and Aliens
Set within a personal memory shop, we invite you to experience a truly unique journey from Jane Horrocks.
Co-created by Jane Horrocks, Molly Vivian, Francesca Levi and Camilla Clarke
Combining a collection of archive material from VHS home footage to diary recordings the team has created a memory shop full of treasures and horrors. We follow the formative years of Molly (Jane’s daughter) and the latter years of Barbara (Jane’s mum). A combination of innocence and Alzheimer’s. This jumble of memories invites the audience to try and piece together their own story and what it really means.
When: 17th May – 31st May (closed Wednesday)
Where: 8 Dukes Lane, Brighton BN1 1BG
What: Visual Film

House Mother Normal – Online
A digital installation inspired by BS Johnson’s celebrated novel, directed by Tim Crouch.
Friend (if I may call you friend), these are also our friends.
Ron, Rosetta, Ivy, Charlie, Gloria, Sarah, Sioned and George. Under the watchful eye of House Mother, eight residents of the strangest care home recall their pasts and narrate their terrifying present: the twitcher, the song, the Christmas Crackers, the Pass the Parcel, and Ralphie’s ‘long, probing, red tongue’. Nine faces. Nine voices orchestrated into a spoken-word symphony of old age and absurdism.
In the early 1970s, BS Johnson was at the forefront of the English literary avant-garde. Marking its fiftieth anniversary this year, his celebrated novel House Mother Normal is given the equivalent of a digital remastering by Brighton artist and ‘the country’s pre-eminent experimental playwright’ (The Stage), Tim Crouch.
This event will be available to experience at Dukes Lane.
When: 17th May – 31st May
Where: 6 Dukes Lane
What: Visual arts, film, theatre
