Despite our best efforts over the last few weeks to avoid any disruptions to services we’ve had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Cornerstone Arts Centre and the Nourish café as we need to carry out urgent maintenance work that affects the heating of the building.
January and February are traditionally quiet times for the centre, and we’re hoping to find alternative venues or dates for the events coming up, to keep disruption to a minimum.
We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and any disappointment following this news, but given the cold weather we’re having, it’s very important to us to make sure we’re looking after the health and well-being of our visitors and staff.

“I’m not just an object. I’ve made a choice. To be here, to be tied, and… not to deny my sexuality.”
Fresh from the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they won 2 awards - The Scotsman’s Fringe First and Broadway World’s best circus/physical show, Shasha & Taylor Productions bring their debut show Everything I See I Swallow to Cornerstone Arts Centre as part of an autumn 2019 tour.
An art curator discovers that her daughter has amassed over 50,000 followers by posting semi-naked images of herself on Instagram. Is this freedom of expression or exploitation and what is the difference? When does art become pornography and vice versa? How does a mother protect her daughter and when does protection become control?
Set against a backdrop of shifting generational attitudes to empowerment, feminism and sexuality and fusing theatre and aerial work with the erotic art of Japanese rope bondage - shibari, Everything I See I Swallow is a fascinating exploration of epic themes in an intimate setting.
Commissioned by The Lowry and supported by Arts Council England and Caterham School
