Designed by Ernest Goldfinger in the late 1960’s and built in 1972, Trellick Tower is an iconic feature of the West London skyline. Now Grade Two listed, it is a classic example of the Brutalist architecture movement, love it or loath it… Personally, I LOVE IT!!!
So I was delighted when I was invited to perform the World Premiere of “The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing” there as part InTRANSIT festival, supported by Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. We are taking over the abandoned underground car park and turning it into a temporary performance installation on the weekend of 20-21st July 2013. See details and booking information below.
From Wall St to High St, The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing is a six-movement “noise opera” – a satire that charts the rise of a Revolutionary Middle Class as it struggles to regain control of the neighbourhood from a mythical Zionist cabal of global banking corporations. It is a story of gentrification, anti-Semitism and austerity and how the financial and political turmoils of the 1930’s have come back to haunt us…
