Lydia Lunch presents Verbal Burlesque on Wednesday 11th September 2019
Verbal Burlesque combines the dynamic spoken word histrionics of Lydia Lunch, one of the genres most controversial performers plus Louise Woodcock & Slow Knife
This will be a very intimate seated show. Only 50 tickets available.
Lydia Lunch is passionate, confrontational and bold. Whether attacking the patriarchy and their pornographic war mongering, turning the sexual into the political or whispering a love song to the broken hearted, her fierce energy and rapid fire delivery lend testament to her warrior nature. Queen of No Wave, muse of The Cinema of Transgression, writer, musician, poet, spoken word artist and photographer, she has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up.
Spirit worker, reiki master, performer/creator and avid non-musician, Woodcock appears in whichever guise suits her purpose and has no time for limitations. Woodcock is a lynchpin of Manchester’s experimental music and art scenes, is a seasoned performer and immersive theatre actor working in Gallery settings to glitzy bars like Albert’s Schloss, creating controversial characters including the infamous trashy glamour puss, Trish Dee. She’s agitated The Fall fans at the request of Mark E Smith and incited public walk-out’s from Manchester Gallery.
Slow knife are the sound of Edgar Allan Poe writing soundtracks to pagan Hammer Horror films with a jazz ensemble. Think Ed Wood and Christopher Lee in the sack with Ken Nordine.
Music Genres: Alternative, Spoken Word
