Biting Tongues Performance - 24th June - Manchester

Post by nickking » 13 Jun 2005 00:39

Vaudeville

Friday 24 June, 8pm, £3
The Greenroom Manchester, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, Manchester M1 5WW

Construct to Destruct: Psychogerography, Seismology, Exotica and Voodoo

The True Story of the Manchester Earthquakes

Showcase Screening of new video production by director Howard Walmsley, with supporting live performance including a sound-text piece by Graham Massey and Ken Hollings and a psychogeographic experiment by broadcaster and MAP founder Bob Dickenson

This will be the first public screening of this stylised docu-drama which offers a satirical look at the regeneration of Manchester. The film charts a fractured narrative - as the quakes continue, the lives of the characters become less stable.

The cast includes Manchester comedy scene regulars Jonathan Mayor, Noel Kelly, Patrick Gallagher and Roland Gent. 808 State frontman Graham Massey provides the specially commissioned soundtrack.

More info on the Green Room website here.

If anyone is going to this (and has a camera), could you take some pictures so that I can put them on the Tongues site? I would have gone (sounds like a top night and all for 3 quid), but New Order are playing the same day at Hyde Park... :(

Cheers! 8)

Wow, that's a pretty impressive site! :)

Hopefully this will be shown at other places (together with the musical performance)?

Fingers crossed - can't believe that both this & New Order clash, as do 808 in France & Gerald in Manchester on July 23rd... I need to be able to be in two places at once! :P
