Danny Boyle discusses new arts centre Home, plus A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night reviewed

Arts news. Danny Boyle discusses new arts centre Home, Simon Stephens talks about his new play The Funfair, and Antony Penrose talks about the Lee Miller and Picasso show.

HOME is the new venue for film, theatre and the visual arts in Manchester. It brings together two former Manchester institutions - the Cornerhouse, so named because of its distinctive shape, and the Library Theatre which used to have its home in Manchester's Central library basement. Danny Boyle, filmmaker, theatre director, and now patron of Home, and Home's chief executive, Dave Moutrey, assess what this new £25 million arts centre brings to Manchester's cultural landscape.

Playwright Simon Stephens, best known for his adaption of Mark Haddon's novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, discusses his commission to write the inaugural play, The Funfair, for Manchester's newest dramatic stage - the main theatre at Home.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is a genre-defying mishmash of cinematic and popular culture references. This black and white Iranian vampire movie is also the debut of Iranian-American filmmaker, Ana Lily Amirpour. A big hit at last year's Sundance festival, it's just about to open in the UK. Larushka Ivan-Zadeh reviews.

'Lee Miller and Picasso' is a new exhibition at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, drawing on the thirty year friendship between the photographer and artist. The collection includes personal photographs and items from the Miller Archive. Antony Penrose - Miller's son - reflects on the compelling relationship between the two revealed by his mother's photography.

Singer and GLOW star Kate Nash, and model-turned-photographer Lee Miller and Surrealism.

Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain at the Hepworth Wakefield, English singer Kate Nash on her role in the wrestling TV drama GLOW, and pop-up arts in the UK.

The American photographer and former model Lee Miller had a leading role in championing Surrealism in Britain in the 1930s, which is the focus of a new exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield. The show's curator Lauren Barnes, and Lee Miller's son Antony Penrose, consider her fascination for Surrealism and the artists involved, including Man Ray, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí.

Singer Kate Nash discusses dealing with fame after the success of her debut album Made of Bricks and the mega hit single Foundations. She explains how learning to wrestle for her role in Netflix comedy GLOW rebuilt her confidence and how her new album, Yesterday Was Forever, was inspired by her teenage diary.

Pop-up restaurants, which appear in empty shops and car parks, have enlivened our food culture, and even had a rejuvenating impact on neighbourhoods. There are also pop-up galleries, music performance spaces and even, in York, a whole pop-up Shakespeare theatre and village. Cat Gardiner who has run pop-up galleries in Cardiff, the musician Sam Lee who is taking concerts out of buildings and putting them around campfires, and James Cundall, the man behind Shakespeare's Rose Theatre in York, discuss the impact of arts pop-ups.
