'He came out of the womb dancing!' Stars relive their wild times with Michael Clark
Baryshnikov couldn’t keep up, Sam Taylor-Wood had a panic attack and Sarah Lucas built him the rudest stage set ever … as a new show celebrates the dance legend, stars pin down his punk geniusLes Child, dancer with Michael Clark Company, 1982-89Before I’d even met Michael I saw him on a poster and was in awe – just because of his amazing proportions. The first time I really saw him dance, he did a solo in a tutu and I was gobsmacked. I started to throw things at him: “You bitch! I didn’t think that was possible!” Continue reading...

Hospital and circus theatre among 'most at-risk' listed buildings
Charity calls for Victorian and Edwardian ‘survivors of history’ in England and Wales to be savedA long-forgotten London hospital, an imposing former brewery and a circus theatre, described as “fascinating survivors of history”, are among the top 10 most at-risk Victorian and Edwardian listed buildings, according to a charity.The purpose-built hospital opened in 1889 was once one of the country’s most important gynaecological hospitals. It became the Samaritan Free Hospital for Women in 1904, joined the NHS in 1948 and closed in 1997. Continue reading...

Michael Rosen on his Covid-19 coma: ‘It felt like a pre-death, a nothingness’
Earlier this year, the beloved children’s writer spent six weeks on a ventilator with coronavirus. He talks about the magic of the NHS, the mismanagement of the crisis and how his near-death experience has changed him“I’m drinking lemon tea,” Michael Rosen says. “Would you like some? It’s what my mother used to call Russian tea, by the way.” And before I am through the kitchen door of his north London home, he has given me a potted history of Russian tea. It is classic Rosen. Rarely does a sentence pass without the much-loved children’s poet and author teaching you something. There are anecdotes within anecdotes, tangents galore and an astonishing frame of reference – from the Palestinian professor Edward Said on “othering” to the former footballer Gordon Strachan on resilience, the poet Benjamin Zephaniah on us all being migrants and the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, on memory banks – and back again. “Sorry to inflict the Arsenal mug on a Man City fan,” he says with a wicked smile. Rosen, it seems, knows everything about everybody.Earlier this year, the 74-year-old contracted Covid-19. He spent seven weeks in intensive care, six of them on a ventilator. His hair is white and thinner (although still pretty lush), he wears a hearing aid because his left ear is buggered, the bags under his eyes are more scrotal than ever, his left eye is fogged over, his voice is underpowered and he struggles with his breathing. Then there is the dizziness, numb toes, increased arthritis and blood clots on his lungs. Having said that, he is doing amazingly well. He is not hobbling around his kitchen, but cantering. He is writing books and newspaper columns, performing on his YouTube channel (run by his son Joe; 86m views), tweeting like billy-o. And yet there is something different about him.

Johnson's pledges on the environment are worthless. Worse is how cynical they are | George Monbiot
Pledges are made to distract and placate us - but at this years UN biodiversity summit public anger cannot be extinguishedIt’s the hope I can’t stand. Every few years, governments gather to make solemn promises about the action they will take to defend the living world, then break them before the ink is dry. Today, at the virtual UN summit on biodiversity, they will move themselves to tears with the thought of the grand things they will do, then turn off their computers and sign another mining lease.Ten years ago, at the last summit, world leaders made a similar set of “inspirational” promises. Analysis published a fortnight ago showed that, of the 20 pledges agreed at Nagoya in Japan in 2010, not one has been met. The collapse of wildlife populations and our life-support systems has continued unabated: the world has now lost 68% of its wild vertebrates since 1970. It sounds brutal to say that these meetings are a total waste of time. But this is a generous assessment. By creating a false impression of progress, by assuaging fear and fobbing us off, these summits are a means not of accelerating action but thwarting it. Continue reading...

Social mobility in Chiltern towns among worst in England
Less well off people in Amersham and Chesham are locked into a cycle of disadvantage despite the affluence around themIt is an unwanted and for some, an unexpected official accolade: the affluent towns of Amersham and Chesham in the Chilterns are among England’s very worst places for social mobility. Grow up poor here, the statistics suggest, and you have a high chance of being locked into generations of poverty and disadvantage.Poor life chances are normally associated with deprived urban areas. But Chiltern, a desirable home counties commuter refuge, is England’s third least deprived district. It is home to wealthy entrepreneurs, city financiers and pop stars, and known for its picturesque villages and opulent mansions. Continue reading...

5 Big Moments From The Chaotic US 2020 Presidential Debate
The first US presidential debate of the 2020 election campaign descended into personal attacks and constant interruptions – as commentators spoke of a national embarrassment largely caused by Donald Trump’s aggressive behaviour.Broadcasters on the CNN cable news channel immediately condemned the face-off between the US president and Democrat challenger Joe Biden as a “shitshow” and “a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck”.The chaotic scenes in Cleveland, Ohio were marked by Biden’s low energy and attempts to speak directly to the camera, while Trump countered with ferocity and bullying. Moderator Chris Wallace, from Fox News, repeatedly failed to control the debate. Few coherent points were made.It was the first of three scheduled presidential debates – and one vice presidential debate – but questions were being asked as to whether there is any point to completing the series. Here are some of the key moments from a bizarre night. 1. Exchange of insultsAs the first discussion about the Supreme Court quickly turned to coronavirus, Trump claimed without evidence two million people would have died if Biden were president. In the real world, more than 200,000 have died on Trump’s watch.Wallace pleaded with Trump, stating that Covid-19 would be discussed later in the debate – but the president attempted to muscle his way through. He said: “First of all, I guess I’m debating you, not him, but that’s OK. I’m not surprised.”It was the start of the souring of the mood. “Will you shut up, man? This is so unpresidential,” said Biden, exasperated, after repeated interruptions during only the first segment of the debate."Donald, would you just be quiet for a minute?"We're only 14 minutes in.#Debates2020pic.twitter.com/EtHa3HGv0Y— Jenna Amatulli (@ohheyjenna) September 30, 2020three old white men all talking over each other, just what i love to watch for two hours— Jessica Valenti (@JessicaValenti) September 30, 2020[Men shouting]— Alice Lilly (@aliceolilly) September 30, 2020Joe Biden to President Trump: "You're the worst president America has ever had." pic.twitter.com/QZsf68b7AD— NBC News (@NBCNews) September 30, 2020 The insults continued to flow. Biden called Trump a “clown” and a “racist” and told him: “You’re the worst president America has ever had.”Trump, without prompting, launched into an attack on Biden’s school record, objecting to Biden using the word “smart”.“You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class. Don’t ever use the word smart with me. Don’t ever use that word,” Trump said.Hillary Clinton took keen interest in the back and forth. “Will you shut up, man” is the line of the night
