This essay film by Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart and Thomas Tode, narrated by Tilda Swinton, traces the desires and anxieties of today’s hyper-connected world back more than a hundred years, when telephone, film and television were new. As revolutionary then as contemporary social media is today, early electric media sparked a fervent utopianism in the public imagination – promising total communication, the annihilation of distance, an end to war. But then, too, there were fears over the erosion of privacy, security, morality.   Using rare archival material from nearly 200 films to articulate the present, DREAMS REWIRED reveals a history of hopes to share, and betrayals to avoid.

* short-listed for the Royal Society Young People Book Award 2014 * An illustrated book by Mukul Patel for ages 10+ that introduces real mathematics - the kind you don't get taught at school. In it you'll discover the game of life, a better way to board planes, and why some infinities are bigger than others… and also moose, wolves, bikes with triangular wheels, and the longest poem in the world. Includes puzzles and challenges, biographies, and a guide to where to find out more. And a rocking quote from Henri Poincaré: "Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things'."
STILL/CURRENT is a five-part programme of works by choreographer Russell Maliphant. It includes two new pieces, one of which is a major new duet, danced by Russell and Caryl Staton, with music by Mukul - their fourth collaboration. STILL/CURRENT has a preliminary UK tour starting this week, and will be performed at Sadler's Wells in Spring 2014, with international dates to follow.
