Diamond Nights is a series of bi-monthly arts evenings, hosted by Cafe Reason, which brings uncut performance gems to a wider audience.  Conceived by Jeannie Donald-McKim, this informal platform is for sharing new performance ideas, choreographies, experiments and collaborations…

Jeanie writes:

“Cafe Reason is engaged in a continuous process of exploration and
experimentation through its classes and through works-in-progress. We
have long-term ideas both for live performance and dance for film, as
well as responding to opportunities that present themselves along the
way.  We are always interested in collaborations with musicians, visual and
film artists, or creating site-specific performances in unusual
‘Wow, that was brilliant’, ‘what a shame there weren’t more people to
see that’ , ‘that was as strong as any performance I’ve seen in quite
a while’…

So much great material gets created during class and rehearsal which
never makes it into the final performance; we thought it was time it
did. In order to offer these shining moments to a few more lucky
people, Café Reason have decided to provide this platform for new
ideas and explorations. It is an opportunity for us to share work with
other interested artists and friends and to play, experiment, inspire
and be inspired, feel uncomfortable, take risks and have fun.

Like most Café Reason productions, this event is organised
collaboratively, with one or two group members at the helm. The
platform is in itself a work in progress and we may try a variety of
formats and contributions. Feedback welcome.”
