Murmurists 'Poor vs Poor'

Saturday, June 9th 2018 5 pm Free Entry
St Peter's Arts Centre, Preston PR1 7BX

 

Murmurists will premiere Anthony Donovan's 'Poor vs Poor'; a one-hour continuous piece involving everything from spoken word, contemporary dance, Free Jazz and Black Metal, to comedy, film and theatrics - as much akin to the spite of Spitting Image as to that of Pinter, Laing and Artaud, as much about the aesthetics of protest as about the ideas of Xenakis, Cage and Brecht.

 

All being well, this will happen .... Art now, for Murmurists, has to be lethally expressive of, and get down into, narrative - and, moreover, this narrative: the survival narrative. It has to soil itself to bits in and for the struggle. It has to attempt to join the solution, by climbing off its sticky white walls, away from mainstream value and its exotic esoterica and its language of willful obfuscation, money-maths and nihilism. It has to get transmitted. Adorno was right; dead right. But he's dead anyway. Stone dead. Pig ignorant dead. Porno Adorno dead. Pushing up the daisies dead. Art after Adorno dead. There's nothing he can do about it; not at fiery Fahrenheit 452. Richard Dawkins is dead, too; Dawkins dead; Dawkins death-ray dead, with a split-lip and black eyes, and headphones over cauliflower-ears, with GITMO Death Metal spewing out, over and over, every day another barricade. Art has to be relentless in ways it doesn't like. It has to be its own hostage to fortune.

 

Come join the 100. 

Support will come from a series of small group improv sets by members of Murmurists.  

Full 100-strong line-up will be revealed end of March 2018
