On last Sunday’s show, we aired our Dance Special, focusing on events from Nottdance 2013, and NUDance. Both of these organisations are focused on getting either members of the public or University of Nottingham students involved in many different forms and genres of dance.
Nottdance 2013 is a dance festival which has been running in Nottingham for 23 years. The festival happens every year, and this year it is running from 7-17th March. Many different venues in Nottingham are hosting the festival, from The Playhouse, to The Lakeside on campus, so it is very easy to get tickets to the different events. Their tag line is ‘Are You Dancing?’, and earlier in the week the Culture Show spoke to Claire Hicks, who is a producer for Nottdance 2013. Click the link below to hear what Claire has to say about the festival this year, and how Nottdance has changed over the past 23 years.

Youth Lagoon's second album 'Wondrous Bughouse' is having it's UK release next week (18th March). The first album 'The year of hibernation' did as it said on the title, it was a caccoon for you to crawl into the mind of Trevor Powers, the lone performer/songwriter of Youth Lagoon. It's very much calming thoughts about Powers' times away at Univeristy, mentioning campus a few times, and seemingly growing into himself as a man and performer.
A year on Trevor Powers has burst forth from his caccoon clutching a brand new album and a lighter more upbeat heart. Disorientating synths guide you through his metamorphisis, it's not a far step-away from previous album but a progression non the less.
The songs appear at a faster pace, take standout track 'dropla' for instance, though starting with drip-drop synths like rain on a new morning, he flows through his lyrics at a pace much faster then the sparser first album. On the note of upbeat Powers' seems to want to take the focus away from himself more with the lyrics and turn the light on the listener. Inspiration is provided with repeated words of "you'll never die", perhaps sounding cliche in any other setting then the world cleverly crafted by his various intricate flowing rhythms.

If I was a betting man, and in the unlikely event a bookies were prepared to offer odds on a Varsity event, I'd have my money on Uni to win on Wednesday. Why? Because the University of Nottingham have never failed to win Varsity Swimming since the event's inception. Clearly being the only University in Nottingham to possess a swimming pool has its advantages!
