Serpentine Park Nights. Between June and October 2015, the Serpentine Galleries presents Park Nights, an annual series of live events in the Serpentine Pavilion 2015, designed by selgascano.

The seven events, comprising theatre, dance, choreography, film and music, include new commissions by artists that explore questions around the body and the stage. In a theatrical performance incorporating film and philosophy, Fleur Melbourn imagines Thelma and Louise’s protagonists in the afterlife, while Jesse Darling re-thinks themes from the classical play Antigone through a contemporary perspective. Christodoulos Panayiotou presents a new version of his performative lecture–reading Dying on Stage, which incorporates new choreography for dancer Jean Capeille. Drawing Park Nights to a close Mette Ingvartsen presents Speculations, a piece which addresses transformation and imagination in the choreographic process. This year’s series also includes performances by Christian Wolff with Apartment House ensemble and an evening dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the legendary International Poetry Incarnation, with poet Michael Horovitz.

Friday 10 July, 8pm. An Evening of Poetry. Booking essential via Ticketweb.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary year of the International Poetry Incarnation at the Royal Albert Hall, poets and musicians gather for an evening in the Pavilion, including legendary beat poet Michael Horovitz as well as poets Rachael Allen, Heather Phillipson, Kayo Chingonyi, Andrew Durbin, Renee Gladman, Holly Pester, Vanessa Vie and many more. Check the webpage for programme updates.

Friday 31 July, 8pm. Fleur Melbourn, Thelma & Louise. Booking essential via Ticketweb.

In this new commission incorporating film, theatre and philosophy, artist Fleur Melbourn presents a performance in which figures from the after-life discuss mortality and the notion of blasphemy. Fleur Melbourn’s sculptures, films and installations touch on the catastrophic as an attempt to unpick the peculiarities of the human condition. Pre-production kindly supported by the Royal College of Art.
