What we’re looking forward to in arts and entertainment this week, in music, film, art and theatre
Synthpop geeks, head to the ABC in Glasgow on Tuesday, where Claudia Brucken of cult 1980s bands Act and Propaganda will be showcasing her current project The Lost Are Found, on which she covers lesser known songs by big names (from Bowie to the Bee Gees) as well as songs by underrated bands like the Lilac Time. Her version of Pet Shop Boys’ King’s Cross, in particular, makes a downbeat song almost epic.
Building on the success of 2013’s centenary year, Bo’ness Hippodrome has expanded its silent cinema festival to five days this year, opening with The Artist and continuing with favourites by Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy
et al. It runs Wednesday until Sunday.
Documentary photographer Edith Tudor-Hart is the subject of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery’s new show, until 26 May, an evocative collection of black and white images of ordinary British and Austrian lives.
If you missed Stewart Laing’s extraordinary, immersive show The Salon Project back in 2001, catch it this week at the Citizens Theatre, as an audience gets to dress up in fabulous aristocratic costumes, then is dressed down by a provocative, and perhaps life-changing, show about power, decadence and privilege.
