On the evening of March 15th, whilst we were in Rotterdam there was a wonderful event organised by De Player which showcased our new pop-up book alongside some rather fantastic forms of entertainment... (which I shall elaborate on when I'm not supposed to be finishing the edit of a new film that's premiering on Saturday night).
This is a little rather beautiful video made from the event and as you can see, myself, the fella and our kids pop up throughout...

Also, if you're in or around Bridport, it'd be wise not to miss our next event this Saturday. It'll be the sixth IF evening and it seems to be becoming more and more popular as the month's go by. Our New Year IF (The End is Nye) was a huge triumph and even included a marching band to the local square to celebrate the chimes of the bells at midnight.
Here's a nice little video from the last IF (NYE)...
This time around.... this is what's happening...
Bridport's popular “IF” evenings of music & entertainment from the wrong-side of the tracks continues in its 6th incarnation on Saturday March 22nd at the Chapel in the Garden, East Street.
Following the success of their epic New Years Eve party, IF returns with special guests VIALKA, a music & theatre group hailing from France, presenting their “A l'abri des regards indiscrets – a Minimalist Dinner Opera” - “palaver, cuisine and sex are melted into sounds, rhythms, and a particular transnational sense of humour, a breathless, ridiculous and nasty dual in which things no longer seem to make sense and both parts are slowly destroyed.”
Also served on the menu are Greater Than or Equal To (the duet of Simon Mathewson and Bridport's most famous man Flora Bertolli), in a special collaboration with local musical wizards Robert Lee and Jane Saunders.
For dessert, a slice of composer, writer and collagist Ergo Phizmiz, performing his usual broth of songs, readings, cover versions, gramophone records, and goodness knows what else.
Don't miss this opportunity to taste this fine menu of contemporary art, theatre and music, with the customary dose of mischief and playfulness that makes these evenings so unique. If you value surprise, unpredictability, and invention, don't miss out. Tickets for this banquet of ideas are £5, including a lovely finger-buffet. How can you resist?
Oh...and a little 3 minute treat frrom Martha Moopette and Nicky Mathewson
I'm hoping to make a treat of a video after the event, but it'd be even better if you can make it!
Hope to see y'all there. There's a blog all about the IF parties just here!
