Since the late 1980s, Jim Hodges' poetic reconsiderations of readymade materials such as mirrors, silk flowers, and used denim fabric has elicited a body of work focused on fragility, temporality, and the sublime. From the delicate nature of early wall sculptures-including pieces such as Not For Long (1996), composed of jeweler's metal chains made to resemble a spider's web, and No Betweens (1996), a curtain made out of silk flowers-to the large cut-paper photographs of flowering trees, gold-leafed newspaper pages, and light-filled mirror mosaics, Hodges' art typically begins as humble, even overlooked materials that are transformed through his touch. His works of art have been called subtle acts of transmutation that are informed, in large part, by the extreme loss of lives in the aftermath of the AIDS crisis and which stand as subtle reminders of longing and loss and the formation of queer identity.
The David and Dawn Lenhardt Contemporary Art Initiative represents a significant and comprehensive investment in the growth and visibility of contemporary art collecting, education and exhibition at the Museum. It is the first of its kind in the Museum's nearly 60-year history, and represents a significant commitment to the elevation of Phoenix as a promising cultural player on a national scale.

On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office - leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.
But Nella's world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist - an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways...
Johannes' gift helps Nella to pierce the closed world of the Brandt household. But as she uncovers its unusual secrets, she begins to understand - and fear - the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society where gold is worshipped second only to God, to be different is a threat to the moral fabric of society, and not even a man as rich as Johannes is safe. Only one person seems to see the fate that awaits them. Is the miniaturist the key to their salvation... or the architect of their destruction?
"A fabulously gripping read that will appeal to fans of Girl With a Pear Earring and The Goldfinch, but Burton is a genuinely new voice with her visceral take on sex, race and class..." - The Guardian

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.
Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
1850, and Europe's most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.
Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway.
But there's still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jerome leave Marseille for Paris in support the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way... Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi's overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky's captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen's The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.

Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie's much-loved tale screens in cinemas.
When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.
A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson (NTLive: Jane Eyre) directs this wondrously inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.
Run time: 2h 46m, Rated: PG
In this film directed by Federico Fellini, Snàporaz - played by Marcello Mastroianni, in a semi-reprise of his character from 8 1/2 - is a businessman who pursues a mysterious woman he encounters on a train. When the train stalls, however, he follows her out into a forest only to lose her in the midst of a chaotic hotel. Trapped, he finds himself one of the few men at a feminist conference where he is scrutinized and phantasmagoric world as though in a dream, where women (or an idea of women) have taken power, and which is structured like an array of psychosexual set-pieces. An examination into the subconscious, City of Women is abound with spectacle, fantasy, and humor in this rare screening by the "Maestro," and an introduction into his delirious late period.
