Li conjured up his best round of the week, a bogey-free 64, to win the Volvo China Open by three shots and keep the title in domestic hands for the second year in a row. The 20-year-old began the final round two shots back of overnight leaders Felipe Aguilar of Chile (69) and Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark (70), but carded a blemish-free round to finish 22-under at Beijing's Topwin Golf and Country Club. Li succeeds Wu Ashun, who last year became the third Chinese winner of the country's oldest professional tournament.
Playing in the group ahead of Aguilar, Li tied the Chilean at 21-under with four holes remaining.
As Li played a superb approach to the 17th hole to set up a birdie, Aguilar hit his worst shot of the week on the short 16th, plunking it in the water. Li said he learned he was in the lead only on the 18th fairway, and he thanked his caddy for helping him not to get carried away with an aggressive approach. The victory was a big relief for Li, who missed the cut at Genzon Golf Club the previous week and lost in a playoff at Shenzhen International last year. Li also won the Rong Gao Tang Award as the best finisher among the four Chinese players who made the cut. Dou Zecheng, who won the award three years ago when still an amateur, finished 2-under alongside defending champion Wu Ashun, who closed with a 69.
Aguilar finished 19-under, a shot ahead of Bjerregaard, England's Richard Bland and Marcel Siem of Germany. One of the week's early highlights was a 7-iron hole-in-one at the 16th by Sweden's Rikard Karlberg. Jenny Shin became the third first-time winner on the USLPGA Tour this year, coming from behind to close with a four-under 67 on Sunday and win the Texas Shootout tournament. It took the 23-year-old Shin 135 starts since turning pro in 2010 to record her first victory.
Shin played the final 43 holes at the Dallas-area Las Colinas Country Club bogey free as she finished at 14-under 270.
She was two strokes in front of fellow South Koreans Amy Yang (71) and Hur Mi-jung (71) as well as American Gerina Piller - who led heading into the final round but closed with a two-over 73. Shin joins compatriot Jang Ha-na and Japan's Haru Nomura as first-time winners in 2016 and will jump from No 38 to No 24 in the world rankings. Cheyenne Knight, a 19-year-old University of Alabama freshman from nearby Aledo, had a 72 to tie for 30th at 1 under. China's Li Haotong gets a helping hand from his caddy in lining up a putt during Sunday's fourth round of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & Country Club in Beijing.
And Hamilton said he had "no reason" to believe it was happening after finishing second to Rosberg in Sunday's Russian Grand Prix. Wolff told reporters in Sochi he wanted to speak out to protect members of the team from accusations. The defending three-time champion also said he felt very grateful to the team for helping him finish the race and score 18 points. Sunday's race saw Hamilton survive the first lap without incident for the first time this year. Since winning at Sochi last year, Hamilton has only victory - the following race in the United States, where he clinched the title. Meanwhile, Daniil Kvyat apologized for hitting Sebastian Vettel's car twice and causing the first lap carnage that knocked the four-time champion out of Sunday's race. The young Russian said he had not felt his brakes and then could not see what was happening ahead of him in the incident that left Vettel fuming at his actions for the second successive race. Mercedes F1 driver Nico Rosberg jumps on the podium as he celebrates winning the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi on Sunday. Nico Rosberg joined an ultra-select group of Formula One drivers with his seventh win in a row for Mercedes at the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday, but the German will remain the odd man out for some time yet.
Only four drivers since the championship started in 1950 have won seven races in a row and only four have triumphed in the first four rounds of a season. Just one - Rosberg's compatriot Sebastian Vettel - won more than seven in a row when he chalked up nine for Red Bull in 2013 en routed to his fourth championship.
That moment might almost have come in Sochi on Sunday, according to Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, even if Rosberg gave every impression of enjoying a sunny afternoon drive in the Olympic Park. Wolff told reporters data from the power unit on Rosberg's car "gave us some grey hair" during the race. Rosberg did not mention the problem on the podium or during a subsequent media conference, when he said the car was "fantastic" and he had driven flat out to the finish with plenty of life in the tires.
Asked about it later, the German conceded that he had lost "a fair chunk of performance", but teammate Lewis Hamilton openly questioned that. From the opening tip, Klay Thompson shot lights-out and even heaved one in from way out in Stephen Curry territory.
Draymond Green began yapping from the start while doing his thing to make plays every which way, calling on his teammates to bring an edge on defense. With Curry sidelined because of a sprained right knee, Green and Thompson took charge again.
Thompson scored 37 points in another brilliant performance as his injured fellow "Splash Brother" watched from the bench, and the Golden State Warriors again dominated without their MVP to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-106 in Sunday's opener of the Western Conference semifinal. Thompson hit seven 3-pointers to become the first player in NBA history to make at least seven 3s in three straight playoff games. Golden State reserve Anderson Varejao and Portland's Gerald Henderson were ejected late in the third quarter after receiving their second technical fouls. Both were hit with a technical at the 3:29 mark of the third when Varejao tripped Henderson after they collided and the Portland guard jumped up, pointing a finger at his opponent's face. They resumed jawing a few minutes later and were tossed with 15.1 seconds left in the period. Thompson hit a Curry-esque 30-foot 3-pointer in the opening minutes followed by another jumper to put Golden State up 10-2, and the Warriors ran with it from there. Thompson scored 18 of his points in the first quarter on 7-for-10 shooting with four 3s as Golden State built a 37-17 lead. Damian Lillard had another slow start back home in the Bay Area, missing 11 of his first 13 shots before finishing with 30 points - 10 on free throws. Shaun Livingston added 12 points and six assists after scoring 16 in each of his first-round starts in place of Curry.
The MVP injured his MCL when he slipped on a wet spot just before halftime of a Game 4 win at Houston in the first round last Sunday.
Curry said on Friday he hoped to do some shooting within a day or two, and that happened on Saturday. He still will have to test the knee by putting pressure on it and planting on it when he shoots, then in some 5-on-5 scrimmages. The Warriors had 38 and 30 assists their previous two games - including six quarters without Curry - by generating the kind of snappy ball movement coach Steve Kerr called for without Curry's play-making. Portland looked tired at times after eliminating the injury-plagued Los Angeles Clippers in six games on Friday night before traveling to the Bay Area on Saturday. With Mason Plumlee going up for a one-handed dunk late in the first quarter, Andrew Bogut blocked the shot, then got a hand up to bother Al-Farouq Aminu's putback attempt. These teams had reached the playoffs the same year eight times previously without matching up in the postseason.. The Miami Heat ousted the Charlotte Hornets from the playoffs with an emphatic 106-73 victory on Sunday. Miami won two elimination games to take the series 4-3 and will play the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinal, starting on Tuesday night.
Goran Dragic scored 25 points in his first Game 7, Gerald Green added 16 and Luol Deng scored 15. Frank Kaminsky scored 12 for Charlotte, which got 11 from Courtney Lee and 10 from Nic Batum.
A contentious series, with too much attention getting placed on courtside fan behavior and NBA officiating reports, pushed Miami right to the limit. Charlotte had a chance to close out the Heat on its home floor in Game 6, wasting the opportunity.
Miami led the whole way, taking a 12-point lead at the half and stretching it to 24 by the midpoint of the third quarter - the period that has been a problem for the Heat all season but became the catalyst to what became a rout on Sunday.
Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson is fouled by Portland Trail Blazers' Ed Davis during the second half of Sunday's opening game of their Western Conference semifinal in Oakland. The Blues captain scored off a rebound during a powerplay 10:58 into overtime of Game 2 on Sunday for a 4-3 victory over the Dallas Stars that evened their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal at one game apiece. After blowing a two-goal lead while getting outshot 13-2 in the third period, the Blues cashed in on their second powerplay in overtime.
Antti Niemi stopped 19 consecutive shots after relieving Kari Lehtonen in the Dallas net until Backes scored. Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn, who scored the OT-forcing goal with 2:36 left in regulation, were thwarted by Elliott before the game-deciding penalty. Stars rookie center Mattias Janmark had a breakaway goal four minutes into the third period, and Dallas was almost immediately on the powerplay after the ensuing faceoff.
Dallas Stars goalie Antti Niemi blocks a shot during the second period of Game 2 of the NHL's Western Conference semifinal against the St. The City manager admitted his team's 4-2 loss to Southampton at St Mary's stadium on Sunday could affect confidence as the Premier League club prepares to invade Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid. Pellegrini made no attempt to disguise his disappointment at his side's defensive display as Sadio Mane's hat-trick following an opening goal from Shane Long secured Southampton's victory.
But the manager made it clear the performance was the players' responsibility, with only Kelechi Iheanacho, who scored both City goals, emerging with credit. Pellegrini, who confirmed he expects Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Kevin de Bruyne to be fit to face Real, added: "It's my responsibility for the starting lineup and after that you have their performance and you must analyze everything.
The win strengthened Southhampton's bid for a Europa League place and manager Ronald Koeman singled out Mane for praise. Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on Sunday compared Leicester defender Robert Huth's hair-pull on Marouane Fellaini with "sex masochism" and also tugged a television reporter by the hair in an eccentric attempt to defend his player. Leicester's Premier League title celebrations were delayed for at least another 24 hours after the leader drew 1-1 with United. Van Gaal was quizzed on the incident that saw United midfielder Fellaini escape without punishment after elbowing Huth in the neck and opted to explain why the Belgian reacted that way by getting physical with the reporter. Claiming Fellaini's hair had been grabbed by Huth in a deliberate piece of provocation, van Gaal reached out to do the same to his Sky Sports interviewer. Then in a separate interview with the BBC, van Gaal conjured up another odd expression to lambast Huth.
United will now wait to see if Fellaini is retrospectively punished by the Football Association for his transgression.
Sadio Mane celebrates after completing his hat-trick during Southamption's 4-2 victory over Manchester City in their English Premier League clash at St Mary's Stadium in Southampton on Sunday. Two goals by Andre Ayew and one from Jack Cork at Liberty Stadium proved enough for Swansea to guarantee its Premier League safety. Christian Benteke pulled one back for Liverpool, but Klopp's team was outclassed in a game sandwiched between the more significant business of its Europa League semifinal against Villarreal. Liverpool will now turn its attention to overturning a 1-0 deficit in Thursday's semifinal second leg against the Spanish side at Anfield - and Klopp was quick to concede the youngsters he brought into the lineup were in need of polish. Klopp also defended Daniel Sturridge's decision to head to the dressing room at the final whistle, rather than joining his teammates in thanking the traveling Liverpool fans. The suggestion was that England forward Sturridge was disappointed not to have been withdrawn sometime during the second half. Having played the full 90 minutes, he is now unlikely to start on Thursday after he was an unused substitute in Spain in midweek. Swansea's victory ensured a successful rescue mission for manager Francesco Guidolin, who took over with the club in danger of relegation. Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola knows he needs to prove his critics wrong by overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit against Atletico Madrid in Tuesday's home Champions League semifinal. Guardiola and Bayern are bidding to avoid dropping a semifinal to a Spanish side for the third straight year after losing the first leg at Atletico last Wednesday on Saul Niguez's early strike. Having won 14 titles in four years at Barcelona and six titles in three years with Bayern, Guardiola hopes to sign off in charge of Munich by lifting the Champions League trophy after the May 28 final in Milan.
Bayern lost in the Champions League semifinals to Real Madrid in 2014 and to Barcelona last year.
Another exit at the hands of Spanish opposition will not go down well in Bavaria, especially in the wake of Guardiola's decision to start the first leg in Madrid with Germany star Thomas Mueller, Bayern's top scorer in Europe this season, on the bench. The decision drew plenty of criticism from the German media and, by his own admission, the Munich leg is Guardiola's "final bullet" in the battle to prove any critics wrong before he leaves to coach Manchester City next season.
Bayern has been unstoppable at home in Europe this season, winning all five games at Allianz Arena, but it needed extra time to come back from 0-2 to beat Juventus 4-2 at home in the second leg of the last 16. It has won 11 home games in Europe since being hammered 4-0 in the Munich leg by Real Madrid in the 2014 semifinals, having lost 1-0 in Spain. But, as it demonstrated in Saturday's 1-1 Bundesliga draw at home to Borussia Moechengladbach, Bayern is not currently playing well. The result denied the German giant the victory which would have confirmed it as Bundesliga champion. The good news from the Gladbach draw is that Germany defender Jerome Boateng is fit again after 99 days out with a groin injury having played the first 68 minutes in Munich.
In turn, Diego Simeone's Atletico was boosted by the news Uruguay defender Diego Godin and Belgium winger Yannick Carrasco took part in training on Sunday after injury. Godin missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury and is set to return as the cornerstone of Atletico's defense in it bid to repeat its run to the 2014 final, where it lost 4-1 to Real Madrid after extra time. Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola (right) and Borussia Moenchengladbach coach Andre Schubert react after the two teams drew 1-1 in their Bundesliga match at Allianz Arena in Munich on Saturday. China's Ding Junhui faces Mark Selby in the World Championship final when he bids to become the first Asian player to win snooker's most prestigious title. The 29-year-old Ding reached his first World Championship final in record style, with a break of 123 completing a decisive 17-11 victory over experienced Scottish cueman Alan McManus at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre in northern England on Saturday.
Later in the day, 2014 world champion Selby, the world No 1, prevented an all-Chinese final when he defeated Hong Kong's Marco Fu 17-15. Ding's seventh century break of the semifinal saw him surpass the previous record of most centuries in a Crucible match (six) held jointly by Selby and Ronnie O'Sullivan. In the modern history of the World Championship, the only two winners from beyond Britain and Ireland are Canada's Cliff Thorburn (1980) and Australia's Neil Robertson (2010). A sign of snooker's increasing popularity in China is that, according to a tweet posted by World Snooker, 27.1 percent of the national television audience in the world's most populous country tuned in to watch his semifinal on CCTV5, an official state broadcaster. These were, in the words of the tweet, "incredible figures!" and an indication of snooker's increasing appeal in Asia. The defeated McManus had no doubts that Ding could go all the way, saying: "I think there's only one person stopping him and it's himself. Ding has been tipped to become a world champion ever since he won the UK Championship, snooker's second-most important title as an 18-year-old. The 2013-14 season saw Ding match snooker great Stephen Hendry's record of five ranking titles in a season and he rose to world No 1 in December 2014. However, a severe loss of form saw Ding drop out of the world's top 16 and meant he had to come through qualifying in order to gain a place in the main draw for this year's World Championship.
Ding Junhui of China celebrates after beating Scotland's Alan McManus in the semifinal of the Snooker World Championships at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, England. He won an NBA championship his first season, went 39-4 as interim coach in place of Steve Kerr to start this season and was part of a team that set the single-season record for wins in the regular season. But when the Los Angeles Lakers came calling, Walton could not turn down the team he began his career with and which he helped win two NBA titles. The Lakers announced Friday night that they had agreed to a contract to hire Walton just five days after firing Byron Scott. Kerr credited Walton for helping to create the culture that allowed Golden State to win 140 games the past two regular seasons, including a record 73 this season. Walton will remain with the Warriors until their playoff run ends, while using some down time to prepare for his new job.
LaMarcus Aldridge had 38 points and the San Antonio Spurs dismantled the Oklahoma City Thunder 124-92 on Saturday night, never trailing in Game 1 of the second-round series. As the best pros on the planet battle for the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup, a crop of young Chinese players have their eyes firmly fixed on a more distant prize: the 2022 Winter Olympics. NHL draft pick Song Andong and national under-18 teammate Zhong Wei are part of a new wave of Chinese hockey players being groomed for Beijing in six years time. Last June, the teenaged Song was selected in the sixth round of the 2015 entry draft by the New York Islanders, making him the first Chinese player to be drafted in the history of the NHL. Song, who goes by the nickname Misha, is just one of a talented group of Chinese teenagers who are scattered among high school and junior leagues across North America that the country's hockey leaders hopes will provide the base for a future national team.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Song just finished playing as a post graduate student at Phillips Andover Academy in the Massachusetts high school league. Song captained China at the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation's Division II B under-18 world championships and could play for China's under-20 team at this year's Division II B world championships.
Like Song, who moved to Canada from China when he was nine, Zhong started playing hockey at a young age in Beijing before moving to North America.
Zhong said he started playing hockey because he liked the speed and physical side of the game. Song, who wasn't ranked among the top 210 North American skaters by the NHL's Central Scouting department, was a surprise pick by the Islanders who are owned by Shanghai-born Charles Wang.
Song's selection by the Islanders raised a few eyebrows as he was chosen ahead of a US national team player and some major junior players but he is hoping to show the Islanders that one day he will fit into their organization. Paul Tortorella, varsity hockey coach for Song's Phillips Academy team, said his biggest asset is his skating. Inspired by NHL draft pick Song Andong and national under-18 star Zhong Wei, a new generation of Chinese hockey players is aiming to represent the nation at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. The long-striding Jamaican suggested he might not stop there, leaving open the chance he could extend his career beyond the 2017 season he has said would be his last.
Bolt has already swept the 100 and 200m sprints at the last two Olympics and added gold in the 4x100 relays in both Beijing (2008) and London (2012) with his Jamaican team mates.
Bolt said he would ramp up his preparations carefully so he can end his Olympic career with a flourish. Bolt said he would run his first race in Cayman, then in Ostrava and then to his coach's June meet in Jamaica before the trials and then on to the Diamond League meeting in London.
As for the legacy he hoped to leave the sport he has dominated for eight years, Bolt spoke about another Hublot spokesman, 75-year-old soccer great Pele.
It's almost 160 years since the first Australian Rules football club was formed, but women will take a significant step forward in the male-dominated sport when a female national league starts next year. Women have long been involved in Aussie Rules - a dynamic game similar to Ireland's Gaelic football - with half of the sport's fan base made up of females.
Yet the deeply traditional AFL, where two singlet-clad teams of 18 handle and kick a rugby-shaped ball on large, oval fields, has usually focused on men's teams. Last year, the surprisingly high viewership for a televised women's exhibition game caught the attention of administrators, who decided to launch a national women's competition in 2017. It's not the only step into new territory for Aussie Rules, which is also eyeing the Chinese market with Port Adelaide set to play a league game in the Asian country next year. Women's AFL participation rates soared by 46 percent in 2015, while sports-mad Australia has also witnessed a surge in the profile of elite female athletes. Jockey Michelle Payne became the first woman to win Australia's 154-year-old Melbourne Cup, the Diamonds secured their third-straight Netball World Cup, while the Matildas became the first Australian football team to win a knockout game at a World Cup.


Australia's women's cricket side was handed a big pay hike, becoming the country's top earners in any female team sport, after making the World Twenty20 final.
Australia also has a rich heritage of world-beating women in individual sports like tennis, swimming, cycling and athletics.
The Victoria Women's Football League became the first Aussie Rules competition for females when it was formed in 1981. Interest in the game stretches back at least to 1876, said Hess, citing a girl's comments in a school magazine: "Why can't we have a football team just like the boys do? Today's female players, whose ranks are numbered at about 400,000, now dream of one day turning professional. The Atlanta Hawks had the best regular season in franchise history spoiled by a dismal showing against Cleveland in last year's Eastern Conference final. Paul Millsap had 17 points and eight rebounds as the Hawks advanced to the second round with a 104-92 Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night. Al Horford and Kent Bazemore each added 15 points for the Hawks, who earned their first playoff series win over Boston since the 1958 Finals. Coming off a 27-point win in Game 5, the Hawks took advantage of poor shooting by the Celtics on Thursday, building on leads that stretched to as much as 28 points.
The Hawks blew the game open with a 39-point third quarter in which they shot 74 percent from the field.
Isaiah Thomas led Boston with 25 points and 10 assists, but most of that came in the second half during the comeback effort after being bottled up early.
Jae Crowder added 15 points for Boston, but it wasn't enough to turn around the second straight game underlined by their inconsistencies. Crowder fouled out with three minutes to play, but most of the damage was done much earlier.
Atlanta Hawks’ Mike Muscala fouls Terry Rozier of the Boston Celtics during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal in Boston on Thursday. Going for a layup, his leg buckled backward, parallel to the court, when he fell in a freak accident.
Now, healthy and reliable, Livingston is making a new name for himself on the NBA's postseason stage. Livingston scored 16 points in each of his three starts during Golden State's 4-1 first-round series win over the Houston Rockets. Livingston has played the most games of his career over the past two seasons, 78 each, and emerged as a trustworthy backup to Curry when he comes off the bench with high energy and aggression. Livingston overcame long medical odds just to get back on the court, and for that he is grateful every time he laces up his shoes for practice or games.
Livingston tore three major ligaments in his knee - the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral - as well as his lateral meniscus, then required extensive surgery performed by renowned orthopedist Dr.
Though the injury could have potentially ended his career at age 21, he still believed he would play again - but first he had to walk again. After all that, the Warriors love watching him contribute in such a meaningful way as they chase a second straight championship.
Livingston's remarkable comeback inspired coach Steve Kerr this season when he was coping with his own trying ordeal, a long leave of absence following complications from two back surgeries. Drafted fourth overall by the Clippers in 2004, Livingstone was hit with plenty of injury hard luck well before the frightening knee blowout and had yet to even play a full NBA season because of injuries.
He has vowed to be aggressive and make things happen at every chance to keep Golden State's record-setting season going.
The Warriors had an NBA-best 24-0 start on the way to a 73-9 record that topped the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' previous-best finish of 72-10.
The Golden State Warriors have given the Los Angeles Lakers permission to approach assistant coach Luke Walton for their vacant top job. Warriors coach Steve Kerr confirmed on Thursday the reigning NBA champions told Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak he could meet Walton following Golden State's series win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
Walton is a firm favorite with the Lakers having played on two NBA championship teams during nine seasons as a Laker.
The 36-year-old filled in for Kerr earlier this season and led the Warriors to a 39-4 record as the Golden State coach recovered from back surgery. Although the wins were credited to Kerr under NBA rules, Walton is seen as an up-and-coming coaching talent. He is already reported to have turned down an approach from the New York Knicks to be their head coach. Since March 2015, the NBA's Last Two Minute Report has provided a public report card of sorts on everything that happens in the final two minutes of games that were within five points or less.
The NBA said it releases the reports in an effort to be transparent and because it would get inquiries from teams and media about certain calls in close games anyway. But outcomes never change whether calls are right or wrong, so it begs the question - why release the reports at all? The league reviewed 26 events down the stretch of the Miami-Charlotte game on Wednesday, in which the Hornets prevailed 90-88 for a 3-2 series lead. The NBA did say Lee made "minor contact" with Wade's arm on the Heat guard's shot attempt, but not enough to merit a foul. A review of the reports by Associated Press showed the league has probed 174 events in the final two regulation minutes over 11 close games so far in these playoffs.
Of those, 150 plays (86 percent) were found to have been handled correctly while 24 plays (14 percent) were arguable.
Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat drives against Charlotte Hornets' Courtney Lee during the first half of their quarterfinal game in Miami on Wednesday. He has never seen a Premier League match live or even set foot outside his native country, but 16-year old Zhang Tianbo as become China's most famous fan of Leicester City.
For the last two years Zhang has run the most active Chinese social media account devoted to the Foxes, racking up more than 3,000 posts on Sina Weibo.
The teenager happened upon Leicester City by chance in 2013 while picking a Premier League team to run while playing the simulation game FIFA Manager. When Zhang, a fan of Manchester United goalkeeping great Peter Schmeichel, discovered that Schmeichel's son, Kasper, played for the team, "it was love at first sight".
Domestic media outlets carried few reports on his favorite team, which left him devoid of information.
The teenager started to translate foreign soccer websites and share the information he was gathering online. The world's second-largest economy is a crucial market for many of soccer's biggest teams, who regularly play offseason friendlies in China. But until now Leicester has had a decidedly muted presence in China, and set up its own verified Weibo account just two weeks ago. Many of Leicester's more longstanding Chinese fans developed their loyalty as students in the Midlands city. Wang Song Aohan, now a 25-year-old communications officer in Beijing, lived just 10 minutes from King Power Stadium and took every opportunity to watch the team play. He has met players and coaches and collected signed jerseys, and while he has supported other teams his relationship with the Foxes is unlike any other. But this season's expected triumph and the hordes of new fans jumping on the bandwagon are a bittersweet phenomenon for Wang Beilin. The 25-year-old, who wants to work in sports management, said she misses the private joy of rooting for the unknown underdog in the world's most populous country. Oshie was pretty sure he scored in overtime to complete a hat-trick and one of the biggest games of his NHL career on Thursday night. Oshie's third goal of the game stood up after video review and the Washington Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 in an overtime thriller that was a classic start to the highly anticipated second-round playoff showdown between superstars Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby.
Oshie's wraparound just barely crossed the goal line against the right pad of Pittsburgh's Matt Murray 9:33 into overtime. The call on the ice was a goal, and the NHL's situation room said video replay confirmed the puck was completely over the line.
Murray, who made 31 saves but was beaten three times by Oshie and once by Andre Burakovsky, wasn't convinced. To the Penguins, it was an inconclusive end to a fast game played at their usual blistering pace.
Ben Lovejoy, Evgeni Malkin and Nick Bonino scored for Pittsburgh, which will try to even the best-of-seven series on Saturday night in Game 2. The spotlight was on opposing captains Ovechkin and Crosby, in their first playoff meeting since 2009. Ovechkin assisted on Oshie's second goal and was denied by Murray on two breakaways, while Crosby was on the ice for three goals against and won 68 percent of his faceoffs. The Capitals won a playoff game in which Holtby allowed more than two goals for the first time since Game 5 against the Boston Bruins in 2012.
That started a run of three goals in 90 seconds, which ended with Oshie's breakaway marker off a turnover by Olli Maatta. After Oshie's third-period goal, Bonino scored with 10:18 left to help send the game to overtime.
A game of few chances was decided by a brilliant goal in the dying seconds as Denis Suarez unselfishly squared for substitute Lopez to tap home from close range. Roberto Firmino fired Liverpool's best chance against the post in the second half as Jurgen Klopp's men now need another European comeback at Anfield to reach the final in Basel on May 18. Sevilla is well-positioned to reach a third consecutive Europa League final as it drew 2-2 away at Shakhtar Donetsk in the other semifinal.
Klopp was left frustrated at the manner at which Liverpool conceded late on having been seconds away from a creditable draw that would have given it the upper hand heading into the return leg.
However, Villarreal boss Marcelino claimed his side was more than deserving of the victory.
The 96 Liverpool fans who died at the Hillsborough tragedy 27 years ago were remembered before kickoff days after the biggest inquest in English legal history ruled they were unlawfully killed.
Once the action got underway, Liverpool had the first chance when Joe Allen's low shot from Adam Lallana's deflected cross was placed too close to Sergio Asenjo. Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado had the best chance of the half in the 10th minute but shot wide. Thomas Pina forced Simon Mignolet into a smart save low to his left before a curling effort from Soldado hit the side netting.
Liverpool suffered a blow at halftime when an injured Coutinho was forced off and replaced by Jordan Ibe.
Villarreal was inches away from opening the scoring a minute after the break when Cedric Bakambu's header caromed off the post. However, Liverpool also hit the woodwork at the other end with its best chance of the game 25 minutes from time when Firmino's low shot was brilliantly turned aside by Asenjo.
The game suddenly opened up in the final 10 minutes as Mignolet produced a stunning save to prevent Bakambu adding to his nine Europa League goals this season. From the resulting corner Liverpool pounced on an error from Suarez, and Alberto Moreno bore down on goal before firing wildly off target. Suarez atoned in fine fashion deep into stoppage time as he trapped Bruno's pass to burst through the Liverpool defence before picking out the unmarked Lopez for an easy finish. In the other semifinal, Vitolo got Sevilla off to a perfect start when he fired between Andrey Pyatov's legs early on. The Ukrainians turned the game around before halftime on goals by Marlos and Taras Stepanenko.
However, Kevin Gameiro's penalty eight minutes from time gives Sevilla a huge advantage ahead of the return at the Sanchez Pizjuan in a week's time.
Villarreal’s Adrian is congratulated by teammate Victor Luiz after scoring the winning goal against Liverpool in their UEFA Europa League semifinal firstleg match on Thursday at El Madrigal Stadium in Villarreal, Spain. Northern Harmony joins us once again all the way from Vermont, USA, to wrap up Take Art’s rural touring season in Somerset. This unique vocal ensemble led by Larry Gordon has garnered a global reputation for their varied ethnic singing styles.
Huge congratulations go to the 681 fantastic young dancers who took part in Take Art’s Spring Forward and InspirED PrimaryFest youth dance platforms as part of Spring Forward Youth Dance Festival 2016. The dancers aged from four to 19 years old demonstrated their creativity, talent and commitment to dance through their excellent performances in a range of styles, to 1,224 audience members.
Over the last two months, Take Art Dance and InspirED welcomed professional dance companies to the county to work with young people and offer CPD opportunities for dance practitioners and teachers in the county. Spring Forward Festival also highlighted an array of exciting professional dance performances in Somerset venues, including shows from Mark Bruce Company, Zoielogic Dance Theatre, Joli Vyann, Cscape and Motionhouse, which many young dancers took the opportunity to go and see. Take Art joined Salisbury Playhouse, Theatre Bristol and Activate Performing Arts to initiate discussions between those working in theatre in the South West at the launch of Theatre Fest West in Salisbury on Friday 18 March. The day of celebration kicked off with a discussion between panel members Gemma Paintin (Action Hero), Anna Himali Howard (Breach), Tim Crouch and Niki McCretton (Stuff and Nonsense and The Lyric Theatre, Bridport) to share their own experiences of best practice and how they have overcome challenges they have faced as artists working in the South West.
Sarah Peterkin, Director of Rural Touring and Co-Director of Theatre at Take Art, and Mark Helyar, Co-Director of Theatre at Take Art, joined Russ Tunney of Pound Arts to lead a Rural Touring discussion during the afternoon. Phil Hindson, Arts Council England, led one to one Grants for the Arts surgery sessions throughout the afternoon. Celebrating theatre makers from across the south west, Theatre Fest West runs from 18 March to 2 April with events taking place across Wiltshire, at Salisbury Playhouse, Salisbury Arts Centre, The Pound arts centre, Wiltshire Music Centre and Trowbridge Arts. Farnham Maltings' touring production is a poignant, uplifting story - and more relevant now than ever.
Spring Forward is Somerset’s County Youth Dance Platform, produced by Take Art, where young dancers get the opportunity to perform on a professional stage, to be inspired by their peers and supported by Take Art and each other. 2016 will be the twelfth year of Spring Forward and each year attracts ever growing numbers of entries. Alfred the Mouse Goes to School is an innovative new project that the Taunton Early Years Clusters are running across the more than 300 Somerset pre-schools they cover, supporting under-fives with the sometimes daunting transition to primary school. Children will be able to interact through a series of creative activities addressing specific areas within the Early Years Foundation Stage. Alfred can be seen taking part comfortably in the reception class and wider school environment.
Supported by Somerset County Council through the Raising Achievement Plan, and by the Taunton Early Years Clusters. It started on Saturday 23 January with the first in a series of writing workshops, and had a fantastic turn out of 22 participants. The organisers are seeking first time and experienced writers to create five-minute scripts specifically for, and about, the town. Burnham-On-Sea Community Theatre Group was set up in 2015 with the aim of making the professional theatre experience available to all, to work with everyone in the local community. In Autumn 2016 and Spring 2017 Take Art is taking part in an exciting national initiative* to bring more dance theatre performances to rural Somerset. But we need new energy to join our existing team of brilliant volunteer promoters to help us put these shows in front of an audience!
So, on Monday 11 January, we offered a safe and comfortable place for colleagues to have an honest conversation around diversity in the performing arts in Somerset. Over 25 performers, participants, promoters and venue managers joined us at our office to get the ball rolling and talk. We plan to look at how, between us, we can begin to implement some of these suggestions, particularly the role we can play at Take Art about widening the debate and supporting further networking opportunities.
SYDC will perform their piece Dreamstate on Saturday 12 March 2016 at The Edge, University of Bath.
U.Dance is a programme led by Youth Dance England, which seeks to increase the number of youth dance performances and support those who organise them. Due to popular demand, this season Take Art is running two training events designed for those working within the performing arts.
Led by Mark Helyar, who has considerable experience in project planning, strategic management and fundraising, these training events offer a friendly environment for to share challenges and creative solutions. This training event will help people who want to explore prospective funding and investment opportunities for their work. Both events will take place in Take Art's large comfortable meeting room, Flaxdrayton Farm, South Petherton TA13 5LR.
These FREE sessions are available for theatre makers who would like one-to-one advice on project planning, funding or any other specific areas of support. Champion fiddle player (and Buffalo Gals founder) Kate Lissauer has penned a film score for three early works by one of Hollywood's most distinctive and undiscovered directors. Champion fiddle player Kate Lissauer is well known to many on the Take Art circuit from her very popular old-time country music group Buffalo Gals. Beginning his career as a successful and sought-after actor, Borzage began directing short films in 1915. Kate Lissauer began her career as a champion fiddler in her home state of Maryland and is also an expert claw-hammer and old-time three finger banjo picker, a guitarist and an excellent singer.
John Whelan has been playing country and mountain music on the five-string banjo for many years.
Jason Titley was a long-time member of The Daily Planet, which toured extensively throughout Europe and in the US and left three landmark albums in its wake. Four emerging regional dance companies, Heather Walrond Company, aKa Dance Theatre, Exim Dance and Richard Chappell Dance, have been selected to perform as part of the prestigious annual dance festival, Resolution, at The Place, London. There is stiff competition to take part in the performance platform; to have four places offered is a rare opportunity for these local dance companies to showcase the high standard in current South West choreography and performance. From Somerset, aKa Dance Theatre Company will be performing their most recent work Next Door on Tues 26 January.
Resolution is currently in its 27th year, and is a renowned performance festival for showcasing emerging new artists. Hot off the press this week, our latest brochure covering January to June is packed with this Spring's performances, news on our projects and opportunities aplenty.
If you are on our mailing list our Spring brochure is winging its way to you now - and if you're not, why not?! The rural touring diary is bursting at the seams with theatre, music, storytelling, puppetry, cabaret and dance, with performances taking place from now until the end of April all across Somerset.
Audience favourite Kate Lissauer (founder and fiddle player of the well-loved Buffalo Gals) visits us in a different guise, this time with Sonic Silents, a trio performing a live score alongside short early films by Borzage.
The brochure also has news on our work and projects across Dance, Early Years, Theatre, Music and education (InspirED).
Take Art's associated company Tangle have been awarded ?49,900 from the Arts Council Strategic Touring Fund for virtuoso ensemble Tangle Company. Tangle Company will tour three township theatre works to new audiences and non-traditional venues across South West England through their two-year New Landscapes project. New Landscapes is aimed at rurally isolated localities that have very limited access to professional African Caribbean arts activities. Working alongside ZoieLogics 5 dancers, from 8th - 12th January 2016, exploring the concept of protest. ZoieLogic are looking for a volunteer with experience or interest in stage production and technical work to join them at the Octagon Theatre from the 8th - 12th January.
Take Art has been granted ?89,150 from Youth Music to expand on the Early Years Music Network in the South West. Following on from the first Soundwaves network, Take Art has secured funding to continue their work connecting individuals, musicians and organisations keen to develop music in early years settings in the region.
This grant will be boosted by match funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, SCC, InspirED and RIO to further strengthen the regional Early Years music practice. Five year olds are inspired by the very Long Gallery at Montacute and make their own noble self portraits….
A collection of eight renowned contemporary dance companies and artists are set to take dance to a new level – the rural stage. National Rural Touring Forum (NRTF) and their partners China Plate Theatre, The Place and Take Art are proud to announce the companies that have been selected to be part of the Rural Touring Dance Initiative.


Four of the eight companies selected for 2016-17; Panta Rei, Phoenix Dance, Spilt Milk and Sonia Sabri Company, were pre-selected as part of the bi-annual New Directions showcase 2014.
All companies attended The Lab, a three-day specially designed course held at Halsway Manor in Somerset from 19-21 October. James Wilton of James Wilton Dance expressed his delight about being involved with the initiative: "I am thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Rural Touring Dance Initiative for many reasons.
On Sunday 27 September there was a great buzz all day long at Red Brick Building Glastonbury as it played host venue to the first Micro Theatre Festivals for Somerset.
Samsa Theatre kicked off the festival with an exciting new production of Metamorphosis, presented by four young women and one young man from Huish Academy.
These five companies repeated their shows throughout the day to a wide range of happy audience members of all ages. Our autumn Rural Touring programme kicks off this weekend with a rugby themed theatre production. Coinciding with the Rugby World Cup 2015, Live Wire Theatre presents Hands Up For Jonny Wilkinson's Right Boot, touring to two Take Art venues shortly and a third in October. This play sees three rugby fans meet in a pub in Twickenham before a crucial England match. Catch it at Charlton Horethorne Village Hall on Sunday or West Coker Commemoration Hall on Tuesday (also at North Cadbury on 23 October). It’s a new season for Take Art in Somerset and our autumn brochure is hot off the press, making its way to mailing listers and various outlets across Somerset. To book tickets for any of our shows please visit our What’s On pages or click on the show links above. Take Art continues to reach thousands of people across Somerset with opportunities and workshops in dance, theatre, music and early years creativity.
Take Art are offering audience members the option to bring a friend for free to these dance shows, and we have ten tickets per performance up for grabs. He played a decent chip after taking a drop, then missed his putt to finish with a double-bogey five.
A par on the final hole clinched the title for the Hunan native, who finished sixth in last year's tournament.
Her best showing before Sunday was finishing runner-up at the 2012 HSBC Women's Champions to Angela Stanford, who beat Shin in a playoff. She launched her 67 with three birdies in the first five holes, quickly whittling away at the four-shot deficit she faced at the start of the round. The long-hitting US Solheim Cup hero grew up in Roswell, New Mexico, and played at the University Texas-El Paso. Karah Sanford, a 14-year-old high school freshman from San Diego, tied for 51st at 6 over after a 77. Finishing second was teammate Lewis Hamilton (left) while Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen was third. Dwayne Wade finished with 12 and Hassan Whiteside had a 10-point, 12-rebound, five-block clincher for the Heat, who have won their last four Game 7s. The Hornets' two biggest stars, Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson, never got going - combining for 13 points. And under Spoelstra, the Heat are now 15-4 in postseason series, 8-4 when facing elimination games and 15-5 in games when they have a chance to oust an opponent. Backes followed up Alexander Steen's shot 17 seconds after Antoine Roussel was called for interference.
Louis had a quick extra-man chance in overtime when John Klingberg was whistled for holding as Vladimir Tarasenko, who scored 40 goals in the regular season and four in the first-round series, was charging toward the net. With the defender still hobbling from the puck hitting his knee, the Blues kept charging and Backes scored on the rebound of Steen's shot. But the Stars went 0 for 4 with the extra man, and are now 1 for 20 on powerplays at home this postseason.
We did not play as well as we could and our performance was not as good as it could have been," the manager said. That's how it'll be seen," Guardiola said after Bayern vanquished Benfica in the quarterfinals. Now it has to wait until Saturday's away game at Ingolstadt, when it could become the first club to win four straight German league titles. I hope with the emotions of the game I'll have the strength to play for the 90 minutes (against Atletico). It all came together very fast as Walton interviewed in Oakland with Lakers owner Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak on Thursday before getting the offer the following day.
He started the call by telling Kerr he had good news - he got the offer to coach the Lakers - and bad news - he was going to take it.
Walton took over when Kerr was sidelined by complications from offseason back surgery to start this season and led Golden State to a record 24 straight wins to open the season. Thunder's Kevin Durant had 16 points, and Russell Westbrook added 14, but they were harassed into 11-for-34 shooting. The biggest adjustment was coping with the culture shock that included learning a new language and strange foods.
I have two months before (Jamaican) trials and three and a half months before the championships," he said. But he says to give it a chance, because I think my coach is pushing for me to go a few more years. They made a final charge to get as close as 10 points, but Atlanta was able to close it out. Coach Brad Stevens rolled the dice and reinserted him, only for Crowder to be called for his fifth foul with 8:13 to play.
He has filled in admirably for Stephen Curry as Golden State moves on to the second round of the playoffs without the injured reigning league MVP. Not just this series, all year," Green said after Golden State eliminated Houston on Wednesday night, 114-81.
He had probably the worst knee injury that I've ever seen, that anybody's ever seen in NBA history, almost had his leg amputated," Kerr said this week after being named Coach of the Year. Now that the Foxes are poised to take the championship, that number has more than doubled to over 7,000.
Beyond Murray stoning Ovechkin and Braden Holtby turning aside 42 of 45 shots, there were goals off the rush, a knee-on-knee hit by Washington's Tom Wilson on Conor Sheary and even Jay Beagle getting a stick stuck between his helmet and visor. The Vezina Trophy finalist was repeatedly tested, but made a big stop on Phil Kessel in the final minutes of regulation.
That's where Oshie was the hero, much like he was for Team USA in the shootout against Russia at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Louis Blues to the Capitals last summer, won for the first time in the playoffs when scoring a goal. Oshie stuffs the puck past Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray for the winning goal in overtime of Thursday’s opening game of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at Verizon Center in Washington, DC. Now on their 16th European tour, the 16-strong singing group has a wide following amongst choirs and singing groups from across SW England. This has been a great experience for dancers of all ages and abilities to connect, learn new material and be inspired by dancers from Motionhouse, Joli Vyann and local dance professionals working in the county. In the meantime keep an eye on our Take Art Dance pages for more exciting opportunities to see and participate in dance. One that is surprising, uplifting and a celebration of being alive; a celebration of the similarities of family life, no matter where we live and our shared humanity.
The slideshow follows Alfred around the school to favourite places chosen with the reception classes.
Run by director Sheila Hannon, these workshops are to create scripts for performance in and around shop premises on Sat 16 April.
Twelve will be selected for professional production and audiences, residents, shoppers and visitors will see the results on Saturday 16 April. An additional project is running alongside within schools and residential homes, encouraging young people to write short stories as part of a competition.
Promoting live performances from world-class artists in your local hall is extremely rewarding. The event was led by Ruth Kapadia, a Relationship Manager for Arts Council South West, with a specialism in Diversity. Towards the end of the afternoon we welcomed company members from Tangle, South West England’s African Caribbean Theatre Company, who presented their beautiful new commission Steering by Stars. The framework aims to provide dance performance opportunities for every child and young person in England. We are delighted to welcome Kate back to our scheme with a fantastic new production, Sonic Silents, starting a three-date Take Art tour this Saturday.
Unlike many of his peers, he chose to reject the sensational, overstated obsession with action and spectacle, which was a common ingredient of the cinema of the time, and focussed instead on emotional and sensual elements of the stories he filmed. Together they provide a live performance of Kate’s score for the films, combining original composition and arrangements of traditional material. She presently performs both as a solo artist and with her bands, Buffalo Gals and Buffalo Gals Stampede. John has learned from and been inspired by some of America's finest pickers, and has developed a creative and versatile style, including his own brand of two and three-finger picking. Jason also appears on Kate’s solo album Stately Mansion and regularly plays in Buffalo Gals. These varied flavours of dance will be shown over four separate nights of the performance platform, marking the beginning of a 2016 tour for all four companies.
Co-founded in early 2014 by local dance artists Jennifer Grant and Joe Garbett, aKa are currently based in Taunton as company in residence at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre. It has been a starting point for artists such as Russell Maliphant, Jasmin Vardimon and Hofesh Shechter.
Kicking off the season in a party style to lift the January blues are The Schmoozenbergs - a fab four-piece from Bristol recreating the swinging sound of 1930s & 40s Paris.
Graffiti Classics will be a delight for all ages, in their hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy show, bursting the elite boundaries of classical music. Debs Newbold brings us Tales from the Bawdy Bardess in a show strictly for grown-ups - and The Devil's Violin also specialise in storytelling for adults, in their fantastic production The Forbidden Door.
Enabling Tangle to offer audiences a fresh performance experience, the project is designed to encourage people of all kinds to grow appreciation and enthusiasm for African Caribbean theatre. Each tour will enable a range of people living in areas of historic low arts engagement to experience high quality theatre presented in venues very close to them. The week at the Octagon Theatre will involve working on set constructions such as a maypole with chains, a bubble wrap wall and working from stimulus devised by ZoieLogic's writer and composer.
Roles will include supporting the Production Manager with developing the set pieces they are planning to work with, rigging and setting up lighting, operating sound and be ready to respond to what the process requires as and when. The project will reinforce regional music practice for the under 5s through high quality workforce development, complemented by a locally identified and varied portfolio of music projects in settings, initially  in Bristol, Devon and Somerset.
As part of the initiative these five companies will take part in a week long residency, The Darkroom, where their ideas will be developed and explored further. Contemporary dance is not something you would normally associate with rural locations so it is particularly encouraging that so many people working within this area of the arts are positive to the idea of exploring the concept. I am really excited about my choreographic idea and the intimate rural touring setting would be the perfect setting for it.
Whilst upstairs in the studio, Somerset Youth Dance Company performed two pieces from their repertoire.
With two hours to kickoff they pass the time arguing about the greatest moments and players in rugby’s history.
Full of great rural touring shows, creative opportunities in theatre and dance, lots of stuff for schools and the latest news on all our exciting projects… take a look through the Issuu document below. You can find out more about our work and our shows by reading the programme below, checking out the What's On, News and Projects pages, or by signing up to our mailing list. We hope that this offer will introduce and encourage new audiences members to develop an interest in dance and attend future dance performances in Somerset.
A number of high school and college friends joined her family - led by her husband, PGA Tour player Martin Piller - in the gallery. We are pushing the limits on the chassis and on the engine side a lot in order to have a competitive car.
It's unusual for them - the majority were on Nico's car last year and Nico's (current) guys were with me for three years. But Niemi, who took over in the Dallas net in the second period, stopped three shots in that two-minute span.
The other Blues player with two OT goals in a postseason was Pierre Turgeon in 1999, the year the Stars won their only Stanley Cup.
But our performance was responsible for that and we have to recover and prepare for a big game in Thursday.
That's my main focus," Bolt told Reuters on Tuesday after helping sponsors Hublot open their biggest U.S.
This was a huge stage for him to step up on, especially because Washington acquired him to win in the playoffs. The workshops and CPD sessions were very well received and have left participants hungry for more opportunities like this locally. The audience were then invited to join breakout groups addressing the challenges identified by the panel. An ordinary family share a great love for life and food whilst outside a political regime threatens. We sit in their living room with them and experience a family in crisis desperately trying to cling onto what is so dear to them. One performance night (Wed 24 February) is at The Octagon Theatre in Yeovil and three (Mon 14 - Wed 16 March) at the Tacchi Morris Arts Centre in Taunton.
They are currently working with Show of Strength Theatre Company to produce Love Your Town – Trading Local. The stories will hopefully be shared amongst the residential homes later in the year who may not be able to access the event but would want to be involved.
It will be hard work but as a co-promotion we will be working closely with you to ensure that all goes smoothly.
She encouraged us to explore the diversity barriers in our work and how we might overcome them. Performed in a township theatre style, it featured a cappella songs that took the audience on metaphorical journey around the Atlantic Circle. U.Dance South West celebrates and showcases excellence in youth dance from across the South West of England. The regional panel will select two groups to go forward to this three-day youth dance festival hosted at The Lowry, Salford, in July . It will also include a session on writing Grants for the Arts applications to Arts Council England. This fantastic production features three short early films by Frank Borzage, one of the most distinctive and undiscovered film directors to have emerged from Hollywood with a new, live score by Kate. Jason’s flair for improvisation and deep understanding of rhythm - he is also a percussionist - always makes his playing engaging and exciting.
Artistic Director Jen gained her MA in choreography at Laban, prior to this she trained at The University of Chichester.
The festival will run through January and February and provides a platform allowing companies to present fresh new work. Our brochure is also distributed to libraries, tourist information centres and a few other outlets across the county. Master of the one man show, Somerset's own award-winning Pip Utton takes on possibly his greatest challenge yet, as he becomes Maggie.
Tangle has come a long way in the last couple of years and this is a very positive step forward for us'. Roles will include participating in company class, shadowing the rehearsal director so he can step out of the work, contributing to creative tasks and development of the work.
Learning will be shared through early years networks, Music Education Hubs, CPD opportunities, partner meetings and a final Symposium in Spring 2018. Due to the superb quality of the applicants it was hard to select just the nine – in fact we originally only intended to take eight forward. I relish the challenge of having my work in many venue types-from large scale venues to village halls and believe that the physicality is capable of reaching out to people in all environments.
A mysterious stranger tells the story of Frederick Stanley Jackson – a Cornish tin miner who had been a member of the first ever British Lions tour to New Zealand in 1908.
If dance sets your heart a-flutter, you'll love Norwegian dance theatre company Panta Rei and Cornish company Cscape - and what's more you can bring a friend for free! Oshie raised his arms in celebration and looked at referee Dan O'Rourke, as fans littered the ice with hats.
Now more than ever, The Iranian Feast is a play for today", says Sarah Peterkin, Director of Rural Touring at Take Art. The show includes traditional Persian food prepared by Abbas, his wife and daughter with help from their friends and neighbours. Ideas included developing a shared language, training and support needs, and building an audience development toolkit. The company performed later that evening at the Royal Oak pub in Crewkerne, a great example of how Tangle is building relationships with local communities in Somerset. Joe (Associate Director) also trained here before completing a year as a member of JV2 - The Jasmin Vardimon Company Professional Development Certificate. Resolution provides a triple bill of new work each night, and each of the four South West companies will be performing their varied styles of dance on separate nights of the platform.
Master of the slide guitar Martin Harley will be playing the Blues at just two concerts in mid Feb and comes highly recommended.
To wrap up the music in our programme, Northern Harmony join us once again all the way from Vermont, all 16 of them! Farnham Maltings bring us a wonderful concoction of theatre and Persian cookery lesson in The Iranian Feast. It also looks at how rugby was dominated in its early years by  British Public Schools and excluded players from the working class or ethnic minorities.
We are invited and gathered to a family celebration and share a small taste of Persian supper together.
This year the company have been touring their triple bill, alongside offering performance experiences to young people and community companies through the creation of curtain raisers before the show. This unique vocal ensemble has garnered a global reputation for their varied ethnic singing styles.
Charlie Bicknell brings daring adults her cabaret with claws in No Angel - you will laugh til you cry! This poignant show is suitable for all ages and guarantees to stay with you long after you leave. Next Door is a duet, choreographed by Jennifer Grant and performed by Joe Garbett and Sally Smithson.
And Cscape Dance return with just one night of their dance theatre show Taste, inspired by Grayson Perry. Set in the living room of a man and woman's house, like a fly on the wall we watch the relationship unravel.
This show is available to first-time dance audiences on our Bring a Friend for Free scheme.
