Have yourself a deep and dark weekend plumbing the depths of the human psyche with this trio:
Saturday 23 January 2016 7:30 PM The Crouch End Festival Chorus perform Bach’s Mass in B Minor at the Barbican Hall, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS. Using fabulous contemporary instruments the piece explores the composer’s fervent faith.
The Revenant – who has looked this word up? The title of the film everyone is talking about means – a person who has returned, especially supposedly from the dead – showing this weekend at The Phoenix, Wood Green and both picture houses in Crouch End.
And to finish? Get over to the Freud Museum in Hampstead, which is just a short stroll from Finchley Road Underground station. The museum is housed in what was once the home of Sigmund Freud and his family. They moved here after escaping the Nazi annexation of Austria in 1938 and it was occupied by the family until the death of Freud’s youngest daughter Anna Freud in 1982. It was her wish that the home become a museum that paid tribute to her father’s efforts, and the space remains crammed with his and her accoutrements. Most popular is Freud’s psychoanalytic couch, but visitors will also discover his collection of antiquities, Freud’s writing desk and items from his library.
Have a good weekend – whatever you’re doing.
