Ikon Gallery, Birmingham

Ikon’s exhibition by Mexico-based artist Francis Alÿs reflects on the notion of turbulence itself, from simple instability to chaos, from a meteorological phenomenon to a geopolitical context, from a simple knot in the hair to an ascending spiral.

ALL YOU NEED IS LSD

Birmingham REP Theatre, Birmingham

The drug laws in this country- the drug laws IN THE WORLD - all stem from this attitude that pleasure is a bad thing. In 2015, acclaimed British playwright Leo Butler accepted an invitation from former Government drugs tsar, Professor David Nutt, to be a guinea pig in the world's first LSD medical trials since the 1960s. Monty Python, Being John Malkovich, and Alice in Wonderland all resonate in this exhilarating and original comedy as we watch Leo jump down the rabbit-hole of a medical trial in search of enlightenment - and a good story.
