The Orchestra Pit The Orchestra Pit



Mark Braby, Shaun Hendry and Jude Cowan Montague present the latest in an ongoing series of genuinely alternative after-office live entertainments. Admission is free. Donations, to the performers, will be sought.

Friday 26th May 2017

Those who will be appearing in front of you (in no particular order):

RANTIPOLES - Last month we gave you Rants... this month we bring you the full-blown Rantipoles experience... weird, wild and wonderful in their musical abandon but proper catchy too.... skiffle, comedy, off-beat entertainment with cello, clarinet acoustic guitar and percussion.

NEAL SPOWAGE -presents: The Noise Loop Bootstrap Paradox ... a blend of performance art, noise music ...and alternative light show. Jean-Michel Jarring as Scaledown is wont to calling it... he explores an unwearable wearable instrument, effort, disruption and interference as tools for performance.

THE ORIGINALS - Jude Cowan Montague is joined by Julian Firth in a theatrical presentation of her new poetry chapbook THE ORIGINALS. Delivered with a merry Shakespearean jig the poems recall squatting in the 1980s and a magical, wild London.

ELECTRIC ELIZABETH - Investigating sounds without causing explosions. But will she succeed?

THE LIBRARIAN and GILES - A collaboration between Miss Roberts (from Rude Mechanicals) on movement and painting, and Giles Leaman on percussion. Together, they will 'consider relativity'

BONESETTER RHYS The gentleman of song makes a brief pre- election appearance with an appeal and a song....

PRETTY WANTON -New to scaledown... please welcome Pretty Wanton: 'Love’s trustless treasure, false fortunes and fierce desires: Pretty Wanton perform the songs of centuries ago in the spirit with which they were written.'.
