Hákarl (24)


"From 1700 on the 29th July 2017 to 1700 on the 30th July 2017, and a retinue of some of the finest racketeers will be descending upon Brighton's Rose Hill tavern. The plan is to play continuously for 24 hours - all players committed to being in the same space for a full day. While there's nothing approximating instructions per se, there are a couple of ground rules - no looping and no cycling of members. Due to neighbourly considerations, the performance will be acoustic between 2300-1100 hours. The venue will be open to all for the duration of the performance but note that access will be restricted after hours - anyone wanting to watch in the wee small hours will have to text a number so one of our highly-trained, crack security guards can let them in. This information will be here and on website closer to the time. Hákarl has done a few of these long performances in the past - a 36 hour performance with bangthebore & affiliates in 2011 (documented here: http://www.bangthebore.org/archives/1212 and here: https://hakarl36.wordpress.com/), and a few 12 hour 'long half days' - one of which is documented here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIppSFP7h8Q&feature=youtu.be Performers, devised by Hákarl and Lisa Jayne: Lisa Jayne of Map 71: poet, musician, part local legend. Sally Shakti Willow: writer, poet, performer. Ecka Mordecai: Manchester-based cellist, sound-artist. Diana Policarpo: sound-artist, percussionist, and visual artist. Dolly Dollycore: musician, magician, and DJ. Greta Pistaceci: musician, sound-artist. Count Adriano Fettucini, a man of many theatrical talents... Jules Arthur: violist, pianist, co-founder of Betabet (and, conveniently enough, co-proprieter of the venue). Joshua Legallienne: acoustic guitarist, sound artist Megan Clifton of Bloom: multi-instrumentalist, teacher, and composer. Hákarl. http://www.hakarl.uk/24.html" More details in the flyer below
