is story- tell it, tape it, film it, play it. Listen, give your ears some
loving. Read something you wrote, read something someone else wrote. Improvise.
Mix it up with your body and ours. Use records, slides, darkness. Bus, train,
bike conversations. Memories. Trapezing chats, clowns with verbal diarrhoea,
bearded ears all riding bareback
Open to all and you don't have to tell to listen. If you have any tech requirements
let me know in advance.
It all takes place at
the Cube in Bristol: a 100 velvet seated auditorium with a cinema screen,
stage and sound system. Contact me, Hannah Godfrey,
if you have any specific technical requirements.
Dates of Next Gigs
- Collaborating with the
took us all round Bristol via new routes to places someone had a story about.
Each cyclist came with a place in mind that they had something to say about
and, in usual A.C.T. style, we plotted a route around them all: from Montpelier
train station via Camel corner to Hotwells, Clifton and finally Ashton Court.
Legs tired and ears alive, it was a good day to be human.
- Amy Feneck showed an 8mm film of her Grandma and told us all how it came
to be made and why she was in Lebanon.
- Francois provided
a live accompaniment on his Casio keyboards and guitar to create a soft
and haunting rendition of my story, 'Curly Ericca'.
- Listening to "Children Talking", a priceless record from the
sixties where children talk about marriage, jobs, hair cuts and all sorts
in sweet little voices that are trying their hardest to speak their best.
- Also listening to Laurie Anderson, Hugh Tracey's "African Tales"
series, answer machine messages, interviews
