*** Performance art *** Hannah MissInTheMix
Her 10 minute shambolic pavement detritus lion dance performed in front of a slideshow of photos of the City of London with a noise soundtrack.
Very interesting visual – loved the concept – creating a monster or a hero?
Are the visuals & audio meant to be as aggressive as it is?
Really liked the umbrellas being used I have to admit I wasn’t entirely sure what was happening but thought it was a comment on modern living and waste.
I LOVED the “junk” character though reminded me of a Studio Ghibli character. I liked the shredding. And the eyes.

Excruciatingly vulgar and offensive solo set from the composer and songwriter from Oink. A veritable smorgasbord of dark social issues in song.
And MORE... spoken word, music, DJ into the night!
