what's on today

The Ulster Kama Sutra

White's Tavern, 8pm

If you've ever wondered what the good folk of Northern Ireland think about sex and would like to see those thoughts brought to life through the medium of puppetry, then this is the show for you. Based on interviews and confessions from people right across the country, Terra Nova theatre company lifts the lid on love and sex, through a beguiling combination of live actors and knitted puppets.

Laurence Clarke - Health Hazard, The Dark Horse, 8pm

What do Stephen Hawking, Shane MacGowan, private health insurance, George Washington, Mussolini and the NHS have in common? I've no idea, actually. But I'm rather hoping that sit-down comedian Laurence Clarke has the answer. Clarke was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was born, and he's used it as a source of comedy since he started on the circuit. From anecdotes about about the inane things people say to descriptions of his great charity wheezes.

Shigeto, The Belfast Barge, Lanyon Quay, 8pm

Shigeto - aka Zach Saginaw - lifts grooves from the Motown archives of funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop. He picked up the drums as a small boy - after his parents bought him a junior kit - and spent much of his childhood playing in the Detroit music scene. His experimental electronic jazz core, with stand-up bass and heavenly piano, is as haunting as it is thrilling.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

You can communicate effectively about controversial topics like religion, politics and education. When you talk, people listen. Take this opportunity to lobby for changes to an outmoded institution. Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
