Chapter Eight Games

The team behind fruity liqueur Chambord have organised this rooftop pop-up at which guests will play croquet with flamingos – a suitably crazy celebration of the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and specifically the Red Queen's croquet match in Chapter Eight. Tickets include a Chambord Royale cocktail and a bar will be serving for when that's gone. Booking recommended for anyone who wants a round of croquet with their cocktail.

Out Loud

The Royal Opera House take over Covent Garden Piazza with a pop-up stage championing the power of song. Both professional singers and those who sing in their spare time will perform, plus there will be chances to sing along with the Royal Opera Chorus and a workshop giving audience members the opportunity to form a chorus alongside the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.

Ragnar Kjartansson

Recommended

The first piece in Ragnar Kjartansson’s Barbican show features ten male performers playing the guitar, singing in Icelandic and drinking beer. Playing on a screen behind them is a soft-focus sex scene, from a 1970s Icelandic movie, between a housewife and a plumber. As with all the work in this exhibition, it’s context that brings it to life: the on-screen lovers are the artist’s actor parents, and the guitarists are singing their dialogue. The work’s title? ‘Take Me Here by the Dishwasher’. Raunchy stuff.  Kjartansson was born in Reykjavík in 1976, into a bohemian family whose Freudian baggage features largely in his art. When he appears in his work, he always cuts a slightly ludicrous figure. In multi-channel film installation ‘The Visitors’ (2012), he sits in the bath, crooning and strumming his guitar. In ‘Death and the Children’ (2002), he dresses up as the Grim Reaper and creeps up on a group of schoolkids in a cemetery shouting ‘I am DEATH!’ Rather than running screaming, they all start laughing at his paper scythe. Kjartansson plays it all with a completely straight face. How seriously are we meant to take this? Not that he’s averse to making others look stupid, either. Case in point: ‘A Lot of Sorrow’ (2013), in which he got indie band The National to perform their song ‘Sorrow’ on repeat for six sanity-testing hours. I’m not sure which of the 90-odd renditions I walked into, but frontman Matt Berninger was certainly looking a bit frazzled. You get the sense that K

PS my favorite Sunday haunt is Church Street in Stoke Newington - Turkish coffee, fresh juices, mediterranean breakfasts and vintage clothes. Also an old school DVD rental shop with the discs arranged by director, not 'category', for that afternoon veg out.
