 …already feel like a long time ago, but hopefully all of you are feeling the positive, fresh, 2019 vibes. Happy New Year! It seemed like Instagram over the festive period was filled with three destinations – Tulum, Bali and the Maldives: three distinctly different camps. The last time we spent New Year’s in Tulum, there wasn’t so much as a beach-side fiesta, and now it seems like Ibiza by the sea/jungle with a Coachella dress code. We can’t quite decide how we feel about it, but we have it on good authority that it was great. So who knows? Maybe see you there next year. As for this year – we’re feeling change in the air. Seems like it’s always a good time to make a leap/take a chance. Whatever you do in 2019, let’s make it a good one. Welcome back!

Staging a Revolution
The award-winning Ukrainian folk opera
If you’re looking to see something a little different, try immersive Ukrainian folk opera Counting Sheep, which headlines this year’s VAULT festival. Opening tomorrow and running until 17th March, Counting Sheep is a deeply personal re-telling of the Ukrainian revolution, performed using archive footage, polyphonic choral music and interactive staging that invites audiences to become a part of the revolution itself. Expect an explosive stage experience, re-imagined by the Belarus Free Theatre after a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
