A CONTEMPORARY MUSIC & MOVEMENT MICRO-FESTIVAL

With contributions from a host of artists including composers Steve Potter and Adam de la Cour, electronics band Schopenhauer, poet Ollie Evans, theatre-makers Jeremy Hardingham, Lucy Beynon & Lisa Jeschke and Irum Fazal, choreographer Efrosini Protopapa, and Bataille scholar Patrick ffrench (King’s College London).
Presented by Recreational Services and the OperLab at King’s College London
Based on Bruegel’s ‘Blind Leading the Blind’.

the world’s furious song flows through my skirt
‘What land is this? Have I fallen asleep again in the middle of My Fair Lady? Is this place what you earthlings call a chatroom, mooing? Why am I attired as a cow in this? Can one really have simple contact with a wooden spoon?’
A Promethean post-poet’s-theater play by the ingenious translator of Petrarch.
