THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is the winner of five 2015 Tony® Awards including BEST PLAY, and hailed as “One of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times. Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

In her forthcoming exhibition, Heavy the Sea, award winning, London-based artist Esther Teichmann, takes viewers on a journey through an alternate, orphic world. Teichmann’s practice explores the relationships between loss and desire and the imaginary, blurring the lines between autobiography and fiction. Narratives of longing emerge from photographic fragments, working across large scale still and moving images, sculpture and painting. Visitors will navigate a maze of layered photographs and lush cyanotypes, cloaked fabrics dripped with inks and bathed in subtle hues.
