A Clandestine Voice - Installation
Clandestine Voice was originally performed at the Lilian Baylis Studio as a Final Master Project. This is an installation version of this collaborative piece involving the participation of illegal immigrants who were interviewed and took part in the costume development and realisation. The piece aims to give them a voice, to raise awareness of an immigrant's journey, and to humanise the subject.
7pm (Venue 1)
Mazloom is a work in progress by the Kieran Sheehan Dance Theatre, a company that develops cross art-form performances with excluded groups of society, aiming to articulate the issues they face.
Eight young people, originally from Afghanistan, have spent four months developing Mazloom which tells the story of Asef, a 17 year old boy recently informed that he will be returned to a lawless Afghanistan.
9pm (Venue 1)
Follwing Mazloom will be a screening of Eastern European film I Even Met Happy Gypsies ( Yugoslavia: dir. Aleksandar Petrovi?/ original Serbian title Skupljaci perja.) Back in 1967 it won the Foreign Film Oscar and the Special Jury Prize at Cannes.
Lazlo - Dr. Dooalot
The punk intellectual who talks to the animals.
Farmyard punk singer Lazlo is a 100% European original. From his base at his zoo outside Budapest, he has grafted a career as one of Europe’s most successful rock singers with a wicked style in biting, anthemic lyrics.
Writing his English lyrics together with London production team Lemez and Fridel, his songs are certainly unique. "Venus" tackles homophobia in a startlingly fresh way; "I'm the Man" throws you into the heaviest of drinking binges in a nightmare pub from hell; "A Rabbit Not A Man" is a song of pure animal lust; and "I Will Eat" is a cutting criticism of our global obsession with consumer culture.
A totally energizing revelation, their music wildly resoudns with Balkan virtuosity. Hailing from Serbia, Romania, and the UK, Paprika unite traditional Eastern European, Balkan, Gypsy, and Classical Music.These graduates of the Royal Academy of Music and Berkley College of Music have worked with Nigel Kennedy and Gabriel Yared and won numerous prizes at international competitions including the BBC/Guardian Composition Competition. They’ve toured extensively across Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, and have been favourites at WOMAD festivals from the UK to Abu Dhabi. Recently, the band has developed both its line-up and repertoire, focusing on bringing rare and lost traditional Balkan music back to life.
