Anyone who has ever been to a city beach will recognise it as a place that brings out a different kind of behaviour to far-flung beaches populated by relaxed holiday-makers – maybe because many city dwellers use them as an outdoor extension for things they would normally do behind closed doors – in a gym, say, or a club. For the Catalan photographer Lluis Artus, Barcelona's two-and-a-half miles of beach front excites for this very reason. "I went there for a long summer break in 2007, after 10 years of living in London," he says. What he found was a pulsating beach life where "people spent whole days on the sand exercising, relaxing or going on the pull. I thought it offered a great show of culture."

Road Show, Menier Chocolate Factory, London

In Assassins, Stephen Sondheim put an ironic spin on traditional American musical forms ("Hail to the Chief", the cakewalk) to suggest that the crazies who take pot-shots at Presidents are the product of a philosophy that proclaims, "In the USA/ You can work your way/ To the head of the line". In Road Show the composer similarly deploys the razzmattazz of vaudeville to highlight how, at the heart of the Land of Opportunity, lurks a venal, get-rich-quick opportunism.
