Draw from Within is not coronavirus choreography but there’s certainly room for interpretation. This premiere is Rambert’s post-lockdown comeback, a live-streamed performance specially designed for an online audience by Belgian choreographer and film-maker Wim Vandekeybus. Continue reading...

Van Morrison review – transcending the pandemic with mystic soul
Palladium, LondonMorrison brings warmth to the cold space of a socially distanced theatre, leaving aside his anti-lockdown songs for a thrillingly extemporised setIt is different, that’s the first thing. No matter that Van Morrison steers clear of offering his political and scientific analysis of Covid-19 and the government’s handling of it, the shadow of the pandemic hangs over the Palladium for the second of his five shows at the theatre. Social distancing is in place, and plenty of ticket holders have failed to turn up – the seats to be unoccupied are marked, but plenty of the seats designated for bubbles remain empty. And that creates its own problems: much as Morrison has spoken of his preference for smaller audiences, he means small audiences in small rooms, rather than small audiences scattered about very big rooms. And the Palladium stays distinctly chilly, the coldness and emptiness of the place offering no help to his six-piece band.It’s a measure of Morrison’s indefatigability, then, that even in these circumstances he can touch transcendence. In the middle of the set, a long and loose version of Baby Please Don’t Go – which segues smoothly into Them’s Don’t Start Crying Now and then Got My Mojo Working – sees the band stretching out, and Morrison swapping out his mic to sing through the one for his harmonica. The sound is degraded, distorted, and as Morrison extemporises around the song – barking refrains, scatting, summoning or dispelling memories, whichever it might be – it flies, thrillingly. It’s followed by a glorious St Dominic’s Preview, Dave Keary driving it with a mandolin pattern that gorgeously restrains the song’s swelling emotion. Continue reading...

Experience: I came out to my husband, then he came out to me
I realised that Joe and I shared our own gay culture the whole time we were married – we both loved the film BeachesI was raised to be a mother and a housewife; my mother was the same. Growing up in the 80s in a small town, I didn’t know much about gay culture. It was never talked about. I briefly dated a woman in my late teens, but it didn’t work out and I decided: I’ll be straight. At the time, it made sense. Little did I know, the guy I was about to marry was having a similar experience.Joe and I met in 1989. I was 19, he was 23. He was just so darned cute. I was a strong, independent, outgoing kid, but something happened when I saw him. It was at community college in Auburn, California, and I just knew he was the guy. Soon after we met, my biological clock kicked in, and I really wanted a family with him. We got married a year later and soon had our first son. We didn’t talk about our sexuality.

Miss Juneteenth review – inspiring tale of a mother's dreams
In a story steeped in pride for Black Texan culture, a struggling single mom hopes her daughter will repeat the success she once had as a beauty queenThis debut feature from Channing Godfrey Peoples is lit with pride for Black Texan culture: the BBQ, the beauty pageants, historic black colleges and Juneteenth itself. This is the annual 19 June holiday commemorating the day in 1865, when enslaved black people in Texas were liberated, two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation had outlawed slavery. Nicole Beharie (Shame, Little Fires Everywhere) stars as Miss Juneteenth 2004 – otherwise known as Turquoise “Turq” Jones. She is a single mother who scrimps every penny she earns working at the local bar and funeral home, in the hope that her 15-year-old daughter Kai (Alexis Chikaeze) will repeat her glory days at this year’s pageant. This is more than mere vanity: the new Miss Juneteenth will have her tuition fees paid at the historically black college of her choice. Continue reading...

The Zebra Riding Club, Cheshunt, Herts: 'Food that sends you away jolly' – restaurant review | Grace Dent on restaurants
There are enough extras here to make this meal a banquetA romantic mini-break in Cheshunt is rarely included in elegant broadsheet “Tips to Save your Relationship” articles, because people are very shallow. Paris or Lisbon, they always say, as if two, maybe three days just off the A10 would not bring back the magic, too.Well, those people don’t deserve Birch, a mind-bendingly ambitious project that’s taken over a hotel and conference centre and its 55 acres of nature, and parachuted in the well-respected chef Robin Gill to open The Zebra Riding Club in what was once a stable block. I don’t have the emotional bandwidth to change the spotlights in my kitchen right now – I’d rather cook in the dark – so it’s comforting that someone out there is thinking, “Why don’t we open a ginormous, almost indefinable community drop-in experience with candle-making lessons and gong baths and ping-pong and 140 bedrooms.” Continue reading...

Covid-19 is threatening Macmillan's vital cancer care. We need the public's help | Lynda Hall
Today marks 30 years of our Coffee Mornings. As a Macmillan nurse, I urge people to help us through a fundraising crisisI’ve been a nurse for 40 years. When I say that out loud, it feels like a very long time. Nursing has been such a huge part of my life. I’ve loved it.I first started thinking about nursing as a career when I lost a dear friend, far too young, in a road traffic accident. Though I was completely heartbroken, there was a silver lining. From that point onwards I knew I wanted to spend my career helping others. At the time, I wasn’t thinking about how long I would do it for – when you’re that age, you just follow your instincts.
