Part of Fairy Tales & Monsters
Critically-acclaimed The Real Tuesday Weld present ‘The London Monster’ with accompanying visuals and music drawn from The Last Werewolf and Tales of the Lost City albums. Influenced by 1930s jazz, Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone and minimalist electronica, their live performances are accompanied by extraordinary atmospheric visual projections. ‘Warm and welcoming as well as arty… a gypsy knees-up, a psychedelic bossa with the polite reeds of a ’30s dance band crushed by booming hip-hop bass…”Q
The Real Tuesday Weld are joined for this performance by Marcella Puppini’s lyrical Weimar Baroque’n’Roll ensemble, Marcella and The Forget Me Nots. She prowls about the stage, crooning a lullaby to the lover she has just murdered. Yet she is not afraid to show vulnerability or heartfelt emotion, singing gently of lifelong love.
Fairy Tales & Monsters finishes in epic style with Arctic Circle’s new ensemble the extensive Age of Not Believing Orchestra features members of The High Llamas, The Red Clay Halo, Homelife, Dollboy and Beth Orton accompanist Ted Barnes, alongside an array of vocalists including Adrian Crowley, Emily Barker, Stephen Coates, Dale Grundle (The Sleeping Years) and a narrator, Dom Coyote. Together, they perform a suite of “spine-tingling music that delves into people’s dreams and memories”, comprising beloved children’s songs and specially commissioned compositions, arranged by composer Harry Escott. In addition, artist Louise Phillips will be making ‘live’, instinctual drawings in direct response to the evening’s musical performances.
On Saturday the foyer will be transformed to accompany the Hall 1 and 2 events. Come and enjoy a range of free activities aimed at the young and the young at heart. Discover your inner monster through face painting, storytelling and a paper creature workshop, all accompanied by a live performance from sonic soundsmith Sone Institute.
