The music is improvised around a riff or simple chord progression, with the groove as the guide.

Brighton Fringe Festival

Confessions Of A Drag King

“You can be anything you want to be, just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be.” Freddie Mercury

“Growing up in the 1980’s, Freddie was my hero. For a young girl from the Thames Valley, he was proof that you could be anything you wanted to be, and I wasn’t going to let a trivial thing like gender stand in my way.”

A pole-esque tale, telling the story of one woman’s journey through pole, from the seedy underworld of Brighton, to her respectable reinvention as a drag king. A feel-good play exploring themes of feminism and gender identity. A ‘must’ for all Freddie Mercury fans.

Doors 9.15pm

Show 9.30pm

£7.50 www.brightonfringe.org

Catalyst Club Best of Special

The Best of the Catalyst Club with Lynne Murphy, Sachi Kumari and Ron Geesin

Lynne Murphy – How America Saved the English Language
Lynne Murphy, an American immigrant to England (and professor of Linguistics at the University of Sussex) has been listening closely to what people say about American and British English, and noticing that most of it is (to turn an American phrase) bull hockey. She makes the case that the English of England isn’t all that English—and certainly not more English than what’s spoken on the other side of the Atlantic.
Lynne’s book The Prodigal Tongue: the love–hate relationship between British and American English (OneWorld) was one of The Economist’s ‘Best books of 2018’ and began life as this Catalyst Club talk!

Ron Geesin: Adjustable Spanners
Ron is a musician and composer best known for his collaborations with Pink Floyd and Roger Waters, orchestrating the title track from Atom Heart Mother in 1970. Less well known is that he is also the author of ‘The Adjustable Spanner: History, Origins and Development to 1970’, said to be the finest book ever written on the theme of adjustable spanners. Ron will be talking about his spanner collection and may bring a few along to show to the audience if he’s feeling in the mood. He promises to keep to 15 minutes.

Sachi Kumari: Bottom Reading
Many people are gifted with psychic ability and in Sachi’s case, it’s through gazing at peoples’ bottoms. She has read numerous bottoms since 2002, and this talk is about her passion in meeting many people’s back side to help/assist their inside.
Sachi is also a movement teacher and director, theatre maker, with performing experiences. Along side her career in theatre, she has worked as bottom reader (Rumpologist) as well as a medium. Website:https://bottomreading.wixsite.com/info

Love Thy Neighbour Presents:

Samana – ‘Ascension’ album launch party
Plus support

Samana was realised in the heart of an Austrian forest surrounding a secret lake 3000 meters above sea level, during a journey the pair undertook across the natural wildernesses and distant cities of Europe; unaware of when they would return or where the road would take them. The name Samana provides an insight into the many conceptual layers that make up the band. As an ancient Sanskrit term, it speaks of one ‘who abandons the conventional obligations of social life in order to find a way of life more in tune with the ways of nature.’

Between themselves, Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett are multi-disciplinary artists. Franklin crafts the instrumentation, recording, and production of the music to tape, whilst Rebecca Rose is the visionary behind the conceptual imagery, artwork, lyrics and film. The process by which all works are recorded is of great importance to Samana, who compose their art in their analogue recording studio and darkroom in the remote mountains of Wales.

Samana’s music offers a direct passage into the essence of ourselves, removing ones veneer, with threads of poetical sincerity, emotional honesty and direct openness. Each song is written with its own distinct weight and significance, born from the interpretation of dreams, the philosophies of ancient rituals and personal experience of love, loss and death. Through their rare and honest appreciation of dichotomy, their music emerges almost hauntingly, to lead us into the realms of the unassociated and unknown.

Ascension is the passage from one plane of thought and existence to another, through deliberations of love, loss and freedom. The album, which was composed in the remote valleys of Wales solely by Rebecca Rose and Franklin Mockett, offers their ruminations’ of solitude in the isolation of nature. Each song is a meditation laid to tape, forming an album of a natural order of thought and feeling to take us to great heights.

“Somewhere between Nick Cave, Mazzy Star, Nick Drake and Sigur Ros, the music of Samana  has a unique spirit born from the nomadic existence of the founding duo that led them on a one-year journey across Europe. All their songs are written from the interpretation of dreams, ancient philosophical rituals, personal experiences with always genuine emotional honesty that drives the listener into completely unknown spheres. On stage, the duo’s performances are intense and hypnotic.” L’ Ecran Du Son

“Samana has a rare power from other times, a seraphic atmosphere bordering on esotericism, a journey that evokes ancient beliefs, fallen civilisations where the gods were legions. It’s an age-old album, carried by the aerial voices of Rebecca Rose Harris and Franklin Mockett, who oscillates between melancholic ballads and spiritual experiences. The recordings have a raw side, offering an exceptional sound, a magical nature that allows you to enter this world of life and death.” Can You Hear The Music?

Doors 8pm
