Oil 54 and Arcane Publishing are delighted to present:
LONDON: WINTER TALES - a special and intimate evening of readings and music to warm you up on a long, cold winter night.
We have an eclectic line-up of talents, all from very different backgrounds and with a wide range of experiences but with one all important thing in common: fierce dedication and passion for their art(s). They also all have their own unique way of telling stories…
Every ticket holder will be sent a downloadable (and printable) PDF booklet featuring interviews with all the performers and information about the organisers.
We are incredibly honoured to have the wonderful author, poet, performer and singer Rosie Garland as our headliner. Rosie will be reading some of her poetry as well as extracts from her superb novels ′The Palace of Curiosities′ (Harpercollins) and ′Vixen′ (Borough Press), and will talk about her work. She has also gracefully agreed to do a signing session!
It is an immense pleasure to announce that the superb Black Volition will also be gracing the stage at the Harrison! BV was founded by Reza Udhin (Inertia, Killing Joke) and Will Crewdson (Rachel Stamp, Scant Regard, She Made Me Do It, The Selecter, Adam Ant and more!). They are sometimes joined by other musicians for their live performances…
Which line-up will you get? All will be revealed before Christmas!
The mysterious You The Living will be painting the venue black with tracks from their visceral first album (out now!) ′XXXI′. We are thrilled to have this intense trio with us for this event!
Simon Satori’s Hi-Reciprocity mixes “Goth, Neo-Folk, Poetry, Comedy, Tragedy, Steampunk-oddity.” What’s not to like, we say?
Joanna Vale: Joanna is a London-born poet and wordsmith with a love of the visual arts. She recently curated Voices of the Winter Hearth, an immersive mixed media exhibition blending folklore with the iconic imagery of a Dark Ages winter. She also collaborated on the exhibition Tales from the Autumn House in 2014, providing poetry and prose to the artwork by artist Renaud C. Haslan. She is inspired by the forest and seasonal change, always looking for the mysteries in Nature, and the powerful impact it has upon our lives. At this event Joanna will read from her poetry collection written for the winter exhibition.
Bradley James: Bradley is a poet, a short-story and novella writer as well as a film maker (two of his short films have been selected for the Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner).
Steev Burgess: Steev has had a very interesting life, and is (among other things) a professional photographer, an artist, a songwriter and a very experienced and incredibly talented poet. He will be paying tribute to the winter season in style!
Danni Antagonist: Danni will be performing the chillingly beautiful track ′The Rain′ with her friends Black Volition, and she will read from her two collections ′Empty Threats′ and the brand new ′Like Diamonds, and poison′.
Carya Gish: Arcane Publishing author Carya Gish will talk about “Occulture” and read an extract from her work-in-progress (and third novel) ′The Right Place′, set in Dorset and inspired by the landscape and PJ Harvey’s song ′The Wind′.
There will be a merchandise stall with books, CDs, art…
We do hope you will join us on what promises to be a wonderful winter evening!
The Winter Tales posters and booklet are all designed and typeset by designer Matt ArtPix (www.mattartpix.com and http://www.mattartpix.blogspot.co.uk/ )
This event will be seated only with a limited number of tickets available for the evening.
Ticket information and availability will be posted in the next few days.
