In Memory of Richard Wright 

 

I have been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd lately in preparation for our concerts in May 2019 of ATOM HEART MOTHER (more on that soon)... and surfing around YouTube (as one does) I stumbled upon a live performance from Royal Albert Hall of Richard Wright accompanied by David Gilmour and his cracking band performing Rick's composition "Wearing the Inside Out".

 

It just so happens that today is the 10th anniversary of Richard Wright’s passing, and so I've spent a few hours investigating this song and…

Bô,The Musical Voyage Review 

BÔ: The Musical Voyage

By Catherine Lara and Giuliano Peparini

                       Théâtre 13 Art Paris from March 8th to April 15th and then on tour

 

            There are moments in the careers of certain creative artists where all the pieces of the puzzle magically fit together in an ephemeral epiphany. The stars in the sky seem to line up perfectly and the magic of the music carries them to their greatest heights, they are magnified in a kaleidoscopic prism of fleeting beauty, and the audience…

Girl From The North Country review 

The Girl From the North Country

The Noël Coward Theatre in London until March 24th, 2018

 

In a show developed at the Old Vic and then transferred to the Noël Coward Theatre, the Irish playwright Conor McPherson has miraculously mingled a new play with the songs of Bob Dylan; The Girl of the North Country is a play within a musical, or a musical within a play, take your pick. This is a wonderfully creative way of working with songs as source material, even though it is not always easy to see the cryptic…

wonder.land review 

Impressions of wonder.land by Damon Albarn, Moira Buffini and Rufus Norris

I was invited to the Dress Rehearsal of wonder.land at the Theatre du Châtelet on Sunday June 5th, 2016 and as I waited in the train to go home, I jotted down my impressions.

Act 1 very impressive, a virtuosic mise en scène with gliding chairs and trains, Alice suspended from the ceiling, colourful video projections, outrageous costumes, snappy choreography, a really big show! The extrapolation of Alice as an Internet avatar left…
