Radio Gagarin: Come the Revolution
Thursday 23 February
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
An anarchic romp through memory, history, revolution and the special brew offer at Lidl.
Never Mind the Bolsheviks...This is Radio Gagarin with Tantz, Fran and Flora, performance, films, DJ Max Reinhardt, Penny Metal & Mourrka.
Radio Gagarin will be filling Rich Mix to overflowing with a tundra melting mix of live music, digital DJ prowess, performance art, East European cinema, poetry, puppetry, poverty, latkes, blinis and vodka.
What to Expect
LIFT OFF / 8-8.30PM
The best classic and new short films from Eastern Europe in the Kinodrome
Original home-cooked soul food – bagels, latkes, pickles, borscht in the Kitschen
ART KAFE / PERFORMANCES FROM 8.30PM
Theatre Borscht. 'Without puppetry there is no proletariat' - Ian Kamendown
безумным танцполов невменяемость / from 9.00 pm
FRAN & FLORA
Virtuosic cello and fiddle duo to die for...bringing you the soul, the heart, the blinis and the angst of a Russian folkloric fantasy, lightly dusted with Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Celtic and Breton folk, gypsy music, a slice of lemon and a slug of Stolichnaya
“Its hard to understand why tunes have never been done this way before…”‘ - Rootsworld (USA)
A failsafe fusion of virtuoso instrumentalism, mesmerizingly sublime arrangements and all manner of pulse-grabbing grooves that turn on a sixpence and urge you into the belief you’ve got your dancing shoes on. It takes a special kind of talent to take an old school musical idea and turn it into the Next Big Thing but that’s what they do. Countless storming shows in just a few short years later, they’ve got orgasmic reactions from heaving crowds at festivals like Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Klezmer in the Park and even headlining at the Brit Awards After Party. Tonight’s set features their unstoppable collision with music from the Russian Federation.
Hosted by Dash Arts artistic director, Josephine Burton
