With Gweneth-Ann Rand (Soprano)
24 Italian Songs and Arias // 7.30pm
A show about failure, by two award-winning failures.
After failing to win the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, 24 Italian Songs and Arias comes to The Yard: a recital, an opera, a gathering for (and by) those whose best isn't always enough.
(Beloved) performance artist Brian Lobel failed to get into the State Choir.
(Acclaimed) Soprano Gweneth-Ann Rand (4.48 Psychosis, Royal Opera House; Aida, English National Opera) failed to win at Cardiff Singer of the World.
These two magnificent failures have joined forces to create a show about trying your best, aiming to please and how we ever know if we are 'good enough'.
With Andy Brown
Diana is Dead // 9pm*
QUOTE*When no one listens to you, all sorts of things start to happen" - Princess Diana 1995
Award-winning "extraordinary performer" Fk Alexander (The Herald) explodes the myth of Princess Diana.
In a collaboration with musician Andy Brown, notorious punk rock drummer, Fk pays surreal tribute to the complexity, the endurance and the tragic death of the People's Princess.
Delving into the poisonous yet profitable relationship Diana had with the world's media, Fk brings Diana into 2018.
Tradition meets the hammer. A stiff upper lip meets beautiful destruction.
A barrage of images, hard-hitting physical action and industrial techno forge a fantasy world where Diana at last tastes revenge.
