EXETER STREET ARTS FESTIVAL 2019 IS HERE! Transforming the heart of the city into a celebration of street art for all on Sat 24 August 10am – late! #exestreetarts #festival #devon
With a reputation for quality and diversity, this year’s event is set to rock the streets of the city with a free celebration of music, dance and arts throughout the day and a flamboyant after-party at Exeter Phoenix as the night falls. #ExeStreetArts hits 2019 with a line up bigger and better than ever! Taking place in various areas of the city, it’s free to attend from 10am - 7pm.
‘I’m bringing everything I ever knew- everything good, strong, kind and powerful. I bring it all with me into every situation. […] So I will take the Scandinavian story of the Little Princess, I will take the story of Heidi in the Alpine Mountains, I will take the story of O-Lan in Pearl S. Buck’s book The Good Earth, I will take them all.
Wild nightingales will be among the guest artists when the Mercury Prize-nominated folk star Sam Lee brings his acclaimed SINGING WITH NIGHTINGALES event to Exeter's The Phoenix arts centre on Wednesday 9 May (8pm) - combining music and story-telling with a live link to woods where the birds are in full courtship sing.
The evening is a concert version of the campfire nights which the roots music promoter, The Nest Collective, has been running at nightingale sites in south east England since 2015 and which are happening again this Spring in Kent and Sussex.
Meet Nel: a foley artist. Don't know what that is? Don't worry, not many do. Nel brings life to films through sound. In her world a tyre screech is a hot water-bottle and an epic fight scene is a symphony of snapping celery and frozen cabbages. But her real world isn't turning out so well. Her cat has died and she’s accidentally poisoned her fish.
A motor-mouthed collage of spoken word and storytelling. Tales of paranoia, young love and ultra-violence. From the desk of Christopher Brett Bailey comes a spiraling odyssey of pitch-black humour and nightmarish prose.
With echoes of Lenny Bruce, William Burroughs, beat poetry and B-movies, THIS IS HOW WE DIE is a prime slice of surrealist trash, an Americana death trip and a dizzying exorcism for a world convinced it is dying...
