Our pick of this week's community and cultural events:

WATERLOO COMMUNITY REGENERATION TRUST BOARD ELECTIONS
INFORMATION EVENING
Wednesday 7 May
6.30pm at the Chaplin Close Tenants Room, Chaplin Close
(off Boundary Row)
In June 2003 the Waterloo Community Regeneration Trust
(WCRT) will have existed for two years, and
this means the time has come to elect a new board.

process for the board. This meeting provides further
information for those considering standing for election
(nominations close 15 May).

AMORALES V AMORALES - MEXICAN WRESTLING AT TATE MODERN
Friday 9 May
7.30pm in the Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, Bankside; free
Working with professional Mexican Wrestlers, Carlos
Amorales will choreograph a one-off performance in the
Turbine Hall for Tate & Egg Live.  Amorales' work
examines identity, role-play, and spectacle in the
contexts of dance culture and popular Mexican
wrestling. Using masks and costumes, including
'branded' sportswear called 'flames' designed by the
artist, Amorales explores the extent to which it is
possible to play out fantasy and swap identity through
costume and ritualised movement. Drinks from the Egg
bar.

DRAGON HUNT! IN BOROUGH HIGH STREET
Sunday 11 May
12.30pm-2pm; 2 suggested donation
There are 12 dragons to be found in and around Borough
High Street. Join in finding them. Trail starts at St
George the Martyr church opposite Borough station. All

CONVERSATIONAL CONCERTS AT THE WAREHOUSE
Sunday 11 May
3pm at The Warehouse, Theed Street, Waterloo; 15
(concs 12)
This month the innovative series of Conversational
Concerts features a performance of Enescu's rarely
heard 3rd Violin Sonata, inspired by Romanian folk
music, and perhaps best known from the recording by his
pupil Yehudi Menuhin. The rest of the program centres
around Chopin, whose favourite Beethoven Sonata, Op26,
was undoubtedly an influence on his own Funeral March
Sonata; and who in turn was an important influence on
Skriabin, Busoni, and even Edwin Roxburgh who considers
the Barcarolle to be one of the most extraordinary
accomplishments in the whole of 19th century music. 
Beethoven Sonata in Ab Op 26
