Façade: an Entertainment!

2 February @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


If you love spoken word, nonsense poetry, weird and wonderful vocal rhythms combined with music in a unique combination of the extraordinary and the extravagant, you’ll love this! Façade: an Entertainment! is a rare opportunity to join us for an hour of a first of it’s kind collaboration between music and theatre from Durham University. Edith Sitwell’s whimsical and sometimes irreverent poems fit perfectly with Walton’s music and the poet’s experimentation with text, speech, pace and rhythm are complimented and enhanced by the composer’s jazz-influenced underscoring. Join us for an hour for this first of it’s kind collaboration between music and theatre from Durham University. Open to all. Be aware that the poems were written in the early 20th Century and a few of them employ imagery that reflects the standards, language and attitudes of the time.
