ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.

In German with English Subtitles.
Premiering at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, Anselm treats the audience to an exclusive, front-row seat to watch the artist at work. Mining cultural texts and Kiefer’s personal history, the film contextualises his life’s work, while taking the audience on an experiential voyage of discovery.
Textual pleasures become vivid before our eyes, as we watch Kiefer roam through his enormous warehouse filled with his art, and the objects he uses to make it. We watch as he creates his monumental artworks using lead, concrete, glass, textiles, plant material, books, and fire.
Director- Wim Wenders
Cast- Anselm Kiefer, Daniel Kiefer, Anton Wenders
Information about screenings with subtitles
Subtitled screenings offer captions which transcribe dialogue only. Subtitled screenings attempt to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an understanding of the spoken dialogue within the film, but do not include description about other aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects.

BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)
We see footage of war violence and it’s aftermath, including explosions and buildings left in rubble. There are references to the murders of several people, as well as to murder in a poetic context.
Threat and horror
Voice over readings are given with unsettling, sometimes ominous voices. We see a child’s sketched diagram of a jail, marked with the title ‘Bad children’s cell’.
We are told about a mythical female character who stole men’s semen from their bodies to create demonic children.
There are a number of references to antisemitism, the holocaust and Nazism, but these generally lack detail. We hear that a German artist made controversial work in order for his country to reckon with its wartime history; we see staged photos of the artist giving a ‘Sieg Heil’ salute while wearing his father’s Wehrmacht costume.
Voice over readings of poetry and other writing contain references to death. There is an artistic depiction of cancer in images of a person’s brain tumour.
