Man On The Moon @ Camden’s People Theatre
12 – 13  Dec Tickets £12.00

about

Man on the Moon is a journey through space and time, fuelled by love, fear and Afro-futurism.

Keisha communicates with her reclusive dad through books, letters and symbols. But when the letters stop coming she is forced to venture into his world. This truth-infused narrative sees the protagonist follow a trail of breadcrumbs that lead her a number of check-points: cultural displacement, religious confusions, political paranoia, misplaced masculinity and more.

detail

With the use of poetry, looped sounds and story-telling, this piece explores the impact that mental health can have on the family dynamic, particularly within the context of the Black British experience.

Keisha Thompson is a Manchester-based writer, performer and singer who has been writing since her primary school days. By age 16 she had been published in three anthologies and has supported artists such as Saul Williams, Amiri Baraka and Kate Tempest.

Mr Mineshaft @  Camden’s People Theatre

15- 16 Dec Tickets £12

about

Mr Mineshaft explores the extraordinary life and work of forgotten black composer Julius Eastman, articulating his fall from the heights of the American avant grade to the depths of drug addiction, vagrancy, and worse.

detail

Eastman is a lost genius – a virtuoso musician, classical composer, vocalist, dancer, and gay rights activist lost to posterity. At the height of his career, he toured Europe and played with eminent artists like John Cage, Arthur Russell, and Meredith Monk, whilst embracing the heady New York gay scene, sometimes arriving for rehearsals in army boots, a military jacket and vest, and holding a bottle of scotch.

But increasingly dependent on alcohol and drugs, and frustrated with the lack of artistic opportunities for black and gay men, his life fell apart. Having failed to gain a promised lectureship at Cornell University, he eventually became a vagrant in Tompkins Square Park – precipitating an even more severe decline in his physical and emotional health.
