Strat and Alex do Art – photography in the field (the wilds of Tooting). It’s a draw, so the public decides whose photo best encapsulates the spirit of Tooting Market (photos below!) – voting opens 6th Dec and closes 14th Dec at midnight
In exciting time news, the Blackshaw Arts Hour will be moving slots on Wandsworth Radio – we’ll now be airing on Tuesdays at midnight (i.e. the midnight between Tues and Weds!). We’re hoping to welcome new listeners amongst shift workers and insomniacs.
As always though, the show is available as a podcast to listen to, anytime you damn well please!
In this episode, Ellie and Matt are in the studio, and the following is jam-packed, and headed to your ear holes:
Review of Darren Aronofsky’s film, ‘Mother!’
The concluding convo about ‘Angels in America’ at the National (with Sinead!)
Excitement builds for this year’s Scare Slam, and we take a look back at last year’s terror extravaganza
Discussion of the current environment for female playwrights in London
Chat about other ladies in the theatre world (including the RSC’s upcoming all-female Director lineup, and the casting of a lady in the role of ‘Bobby’ in ‘Company’).
Ellie, Matt and Alex catch up with Dave Bibby re: Edinburgh and his show ‘Nobody Puts Bibby in the Corner’, Matt reviews ‘Under the Shadow’ and we play another round of Edfringe Roulette! Also, we announce our 3rd Annual Scare Slam at the London Horror Festival (23rd October, 7pm, Old Red Lion).
This episode features Matt, Ellie, Alex and Strat.
Matt reviews ‘The Beguiled’ – spoiler, he says he has ‘almost forgotten it already’.
We chat to some lovely people about their Edinburgh Fringe shows:
Dave Bibby – Nobody Puts Bibby in the Corner
Richard Stott – Wretched
Anna Marsland – Ballistic
Christopher Woodley – The Soft Subject (a Love Story)
Strat & Alex do Art: The cut-up technique (or découpé in French) is a literary technique in which a text is cut up and rearranged to create a new text. The concept can be traced to at least the Dadaists of the 1920s. We gave them a copy of the Evening Standard each and let them run riot with the scissors (NB: no actual running with scissors occurred – that’s not allowed).
