Andrew Weatherall: lone swordsman who cut new shapes for British music 17 Feb 12:37pm Andrew Weatherall: lone swordsman who cut new shapes for British music
From producing dub symphonies, DJing ferocious techno, to never losing his insatiable musical curiosity, Weatherall was a truly inspirational figure There was a point, quite early on in Andrew Weatherall’s career, when vast commercial success appeared to beckon him. Already an acclaimed DJ and remixer, his production work on Primal Scream’s 1991 album Screamadelica had helped turn a middling indie act whose career had given every appearance of being in its terminal phase, into an award-winning, multi-million selling band suddenly at the cutting edge, the epitome of the fruitful interface between rock music and the post-acid house dance scene.

Gabber: return of dance music’s gloriously tasteless subgenre 10 Jan 8:00am Gabber: return of dance music’s gloriously tasteless subgenre
After years as a niche interest, eclipsed by other trance and hardcore variants, gabber is finally having its moment in the mainstream “Strictly for the headstrong!” bellowed the rave MCs back in 92. In contrast to the smiles and hugs of acid house, the music, the dancing, the drugs were all becoming truly hardcore. This, in turn, birthed all kinds of mainly regional variations that have lasted from the 90s to today, most notably gabber – a relentless mix of superfast BPMS, distorted kickdrums and roared vocals that evoked the distilled nihilism of Rotterdam skinheads. While other equally aggressive techno and trance variants were given a platform in French “teknivals” and micro-enclaves in Moscow, Newcastle and Valencia, gabber was confined to its own diehard subculture. But now, following a gradual rise in underground interest, gabber and its hardcore cousins have become oddly popular again. Of course, club culture is always porous: people like Hudson Mohawke have long repped their hardcore pasts. But 2019 saw gabber and hardcore boiling over into the mainstream. Siberian star Nina Kraviz put ever-higher BPMs into her Trip label and DJ sets. “It’s got that joyous energy that makes you want to jump around,” she says. “Some techno snobs say gabber is tasteless and overly simplistic. That makes me want play it even more!” Paul Woolford’s Special Request, meanwhile, packed shameless hardcore face-melters into his Vortex album. Indonesian duo Gabber Modus Operandi demolished arty festivals and grubby basement raves. Boiler Room hosted hard dance specials with young crews from across Europe, while American EDM’s absorption of Dutch hardstyle – a fusion of techno and hardcore – has reached truly terrifying levels through the likes of Guatemalan DJ Carnage.

Stop mewling! Cats is no turkey, say our dance and theatre critics 6 Jan 10:00am Stop mewling! Cats is no turkey, say our dance and theatre critics
Film reviewers sank their claws into Cats, but is it really so awful? Our stage reviewers steeled themselves for the caterwauling ... but ended up quite enjoying it It can be very pleasurable as a critic to really get your claws into something, but the landslide of snide that met the Cats movie didn’t tally with the film I saw. In fact, I was baffled by the mass freakout. Again and again, critics were confounded by the idea of humans dressed up as cats. But what were they expecting? Had anyone seen the musical?! The cats in the film look like a more sophisticated version of the stage dancers in their catsuits. Like all dancers, they have person-shaped bodies (including boobs, where appropriate) and smoothed over knobbly bits. (This obsession with them having no visible genitals – it would be a lot weirder if they did, no?) The CGI ears and tails have elicited some cattiness, but they’re twitchily intriguing rather than disturbing.

Ahead of her Christmas special, Kylie’s Secret Night, the pop icon joins Alan Carr to talk about perms, extreme fans and, most crucially of all, the strength of sticky tape Fans of Kylie Minogue often talk about her 30-year career in terms of chapters. There was the late-80s perm-pop era, post-Charlene from Neighbours; the dance-pop era; the hot pants-sporting disco era; a slightly less successful indie era; and last year’s country era. This summer, however, saw her gloriously combine them all during an emotional Sunday afternoon “legends” slot at Glastonbury, 14 years after she was forced to cancel a headline performance following a breast cancer diagnosis. Woven throughout her career has been an old-school devotion to privacy: we know the Kylie she’s keen to present, but perhaps not the real one. If anyone can get her to open up a bit, though, it’s

For a Chinese number, we wear conical hats and ragged trousers, and hop from one leg to the other, grinning, our elbows bent and index fingers sharply pointed, which is the universal ballet symbol for “Chinese”. (One theory is that the fingers imitate chopsticks.) I’m 12 and it never crosses my mind to ask if this is how people in China actually dance.

Not The Nutcracker! Spellbinding dance straight from the playground 22 Oct 2019, 1:01am Not The Nutcracker! Spellbinding dance straight from the playground
Caroline Cornélis draws on everyday life to make elegant shows for young audiences. In 10:10, three dancers and a drummer recreate break time Shows for young audiences are frequently set in fantasy and fairytale worlds, but the school playground is children’s daily domain of make-believe. A stretch of tarmac and a knackered climbing frame will host dozens of overlapping adventures, either continued next playtime or forgotten forever. These mini playground dramas are the inspiration for a wonderfully assured dance production for over-sixes, created by Belgian choreographer Caroline Cornélis. It’s called 10:10, named after a popular time for morning break in European schools. The show begins with a musician sweeping sand to the edges of the stage before resting the brush against a drum kit, picking up a pair of sticks and pounding out a blistering solo. Three dancers appear at the wings, itching to rush on, as if anticipating the school bell. As the drumming accelerates, they storm a stage suddenly flooded with light. Break time begins.

Marcelino Sambé: ‘Ballet should not be just for elite kids’ 5 Oct 2019, 10:00am Marcelino Sambé: ‘Ballet should not be just for elite kids’
It’s a fairytale: the young dancer in a poor Lisbon suburb who makes it to principal at a world class company. But more underprivileged children should get a chance, says the Royal Ballet’s rising star“My earliest memory of dancing,” Marcelino Sambé says, “is of being at a community centre for children from troubled families, in Alto da Loba, on the outskirts of Lisbon, where I was born.” We are talking in an office at the Royal Opera House and Sambé is sitting down, sometimes wrapping his arms around himself, looking at ease in his body in the way only a dancer can – with out-of-the-ordinary grace. The director of the Royal Ballet, Kevin O’Hare, announcing Sambé’s recent promotion to principal dancer, highlighted “the most wonderful personality” that endears him to audiences and company members alike. Critics are easily slain too: agreeing about his athletically ebullient stage presence. And inevitably, as the second black male dancer to reach the Royal Ballet’s top ranks, he is compared to Carlos Acosta and, like the Cuban star, he has come a long way to reach the heights. “That community party,” he goes on with his story, “was a real dancefest – everyone would bring their own cakes and drinks and we’d dance. I was four years old and remember noticing people’s thrilled faces, watching my rhythmical movements. I was lucky enough to be born into a neighbourhood of African immigrants from Guinea and the Portuguese colonies. I knew dances like kizomba and funana – all the African rhythms.”

Copy of short-lived Vienna venue is star of exhibition on artistic role of cafes and clubs For fun-loving aesthetes in early 20th-century Vienna it was the place to be, a venue for expressionist dance, absurdist puppetry and experimental theatre, perhaps enjoyed with a “cabaret smash” from the cocktail menu. More than a century later there are no drinks on sale but the wildly colourful bar of the short-lived Cabaret Fledermaus has been recreated for an exhibition exploring the artistic role of cafes, cabarets and clubs around the world.

TJ Hertz, AKA Objekt, is one of the most beloved DJs and producers around. His tracks and albums routinely top end-of-year lists in the dance music press; their density and technique pleases the chinstrokers at the back, while their goofiness and fun gets hands in the air down the front. And yet this is his first ever live set, a show he brings to the UK this week. Hertz stands behind a bank of equipment playing crystalline, deconstructed club music and singing through a vocoder while Ezra Miller, a young American visual artist, stands opposite triggering mesmeric visuals in time with the staccato beats and broken melodies.

Legacy by Thomas Harding review – how the Lyons Company took on the world 23 Aug 2019, 2:30am Legacy by Thomas Harding review – how the Lyons Company took on the world
Bombs as well as biscuits are on the menu from the starry family behind the cosy Lyons tea shops For most of the 20th century J Lyons & Co Ltd lodged at the heart of Britain’s social imagination. From the 1920s you could pop into a Lyons tea shop to be served by a “nippy”, a light-footed waitress got up like a parlourmaid. If you were a working girl of the newest and nicest variety – a secretary, teacher or shop assistant – you could eat an express lunch on your own in a Lyons without risking your respectability. If you were feeling particularly smart, you could go up to “town” and stay in the art deco-ish Strand Palace or Regent’s Palace hotels, vernacular versions of elite institutions such as Claridge’s or The Savoy. In the evening you might venture out to the “Troc”, or Trocadero, in your best togs, where you could enjoy a fancy dinner and dance to a jazz band. Back home, the stream of comforts continued as you sat down with a cup of Lyons tea while your children might get a Mivvi, a sumptuous ice-cream-lolly hybrid. Customers liked knowing that the firm that provided them with so many reliable treats was run by a family, although exactly who that family was and where it came from remained hazy. The name subliminally suggested “lion” and therefore something enduringly, heraldically British. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jo Lyons was connected to the Salmon & Gluckstein dynasty whose founder had arrived in Whitechapel from Prussia via Belgium in 1843. “Lyons” rolled off the tongue better than Gluckstein or even Salmon and it also kept the two sides of the business sounding separate, in case the risky move from cigars to mass catering crashed and burned. As well as muffling the firm’s Jewish origins, “Lyons” covertly signposted its imperial reach: agents for the company scoured the American south for the best-priced tobacco and the Indian subcontinent for the tenderest tea, and took inspiration from Europe’s smartest pastry counters, before metabolising these far-flung raw materials into a brand that felt as British as a rainy afternoon in Piccadilly.

The pitch-black small-town mockumentary was a flop on release and left critics cold but 20 years later its vicious indecency remains daring Drop Dead Gorgeous is one of my favourite films. It also made less than its $15m budget at the box office and only has a 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Jesus loves winners, as Gladys Leeman tells her daughter Becky, but I do understand why Drop Dead Gorgeous was not triumphant when it was released 20 years ago. Shot as a mockumentary, and indebted to John Waters and Christopher Guest, it follows a group of young, wannabe high school beauty queens as they compete in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess pageant. Its humour is crude, its message is anarchic, its bite is vicious and its jokes don’t so much stretch the boundaries of taste as tap-dance all over them in a mortuary.

Joseph O’Connor on Dún Laoghaire: ‘It was like Skegness with nuns’ 24 Jun 2019, 5:00am Joseph O’Connor on Dún Laoghaire: ‘It was like Skegness with nuns’
The author recalls the faded charm and dreams of the Boomtown Rats’ hometown once visited by James Joyce and Oscar Wilde I grew up in Dún Laoghaire, pronounced either Doon Laira or Dun Leary, a coast town seven miles south of Dublin. We had ice-cream vans, Victorian-era public baths, the Top Hat dance hall, a couple of forlorn chippers with Gene Vincent on the jukebox and icons of the Sacred Heart on the wall. Old ladies shuffled the pier, arm in arm, tutting at the greasers and their bell-bottomed girlfriends. It wasn’t the wild Irish coastline of Kerry or Connemara; it was more like Skegness with nuns. You didn’t see the waves roar in from the horizon, those thunderous breakers born off Newfoundland, or feel the shocking tang of spray in your mouth. Some pubs were said to be rough, some backstreets to be avoided. Like all port towns, Dún Laoghaire had a little grit beneath its fingernails. But still, it had magic, too. For decades, the Holyhead ferries came and went. An aroma of the sea drifted on the air, commingling with that Dublin redolence of coal smoke and rain. In the Victorian age, prosperous Dún Laoghaire had been renamed “Kingstown”. Something of that crusty elegance could be seen in the sad-eyed old townhouses that once must have been handsome. The post boxes on Marine Road had the royal initials “VR” or “GR” still faintly discernible under their thick layerings of green paint. A cast-iron monument to Queen Victoria stood near the seafront and regularly was vandalised by ardent local republicans or kids with nothing to do. The once wondrous Pavilion cinema, like an art deco ocean liner that had run aground, was falling to pieces around us.
