John Lake – Jazz and Poetry Layer Cake


A delicious serving of modern original Jazz and poetry created by the award-winning author John Harvey (author of the bestselling Charlie Resnick series) inter-layered by the sensational sounds of the John Lake Band. The evening will be a layer cake of music written by John Lake as recorded on his band’s albums ‘Up on the Downs’ and ‘Wave of Translation’ followed by an intense layer of performance-Jazz-laced poetry by John Harvey from his published works ‘Out of Silence’, ‘Ghosts of a Chance’ and ‘Bluer Than This’ – sometimes the two intermingle to form a mouth-watering combination to entertain and please the audience.

Voice

A new one-woman show written and performed by Vikki Parker.

Told through theatre, movement, comedy & singing the Blues… a woman immersed in her story of madness, covert control, her lost self & her TED talk fantasy of socially unacceptable facts…reveals her brave ways out.

A glimpse into the means by which SHE can speak, privately & publicly.

Afraid?

A thoughtful, challenging, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking narrative about trauma survival that informs, provokes, soothes and liberates. A glimpse into one feminine perspective of our time. Vikki has been writing for many years… in secret.

She is an actor, writer, artist, Blues singer, thinker & thriver looking for ways to present stories that heal.

She is the Creative Director at Arts Unwritten, a new company that seeks to develop new writing for theatre in collaboration with movement and visual artists. Arts Unwritten seeks to harness the poetic and healing power of personal journey in performance.

The theme of madness and mental instability has been a frequent visitor to her writing, and directing, drawing on the taboos within family and society’s treatment of it.

‘Voice’ is the next stage in testing those waters and telling stories of personal truth. A new level of understanding about her own complexities, is presented in this new writing.

Felt

This is about the most important thing Michael Clarke ever felt. He would love to share that with you. But who exactly is pulling the strings, and could it be that there is something far more sinister at work? Something that runs deeper and darker than the world could have ever imagined? Proudly sponsored by the good people at Felta Skelta. Surreal, theatrical stand-up comedy from the New Act of The Year 2017 finalist and star of BBC Comedy’s ‘Hash Helmet’. “Takes risks which elevate him above most comedians” (London City Nights).
