Openings, closings, last chances and first glances - April is ending, May is beginning. T. S. Eliot told us that April is the cruelest month, but at the Invisible Dog it isn't cruel, it's just too short! Films, readings, performances and a brand new ground floor installation will all be happening in the next 4 weeks.
