Don't miss Jérôme Bel tomorrow night. Thursday 22nd march, 8pm GMT. Wherever you are, if you have internet you can watch him perform live at the Tate Modern.

Being a dancer/performer/blogger/maker (goodness!) working in and around dance today has me thinking a lot about authorship. Who's got it? Who's giving it up? Who cares? Who's grabbing it with both hands? Are we beyond it? Baby, give me a sheet of multi-coloured sticky dots and I am all over it.
This weekend celebrates Black History Month, east london photography festival, and the Twisted Cabaret Festival... and other things.

Some exciting things to do this weekend.
