Raving not Drowning is a rollicking romp of a gig theatre, performance art slap to the farce of the post-Brexit, post-Pandemic, political pantomime, perfectly seasoned with pressing and thought-provoking proclamations. How did Britain get to where it is today and where does it go from here?
A DJ combines an early ‘Acid House’ inspired soundscape with ‘blip-sonic’ sound art. A Joyous phonic celebration of the early 1990’s. Splicing through the beats are the hushed tones of Professor of Food Policy Tim Lang injecting gravitas and lyricism glitching against the whimsical actions of The Raver, her feet encased in concrete incessantly swimming to the beat of the hum as she floats in a liminal space between raving and drowning as she attempts to swim the English Channel.
Join us on our soap box and rave and bathe on!
The Palimpsisters are playful. Innately humorous with an anarchistic edge, honed from a lifetime’s consumption of Britishness.
We are the generation of smiley faced optimists crushed within our lifetime. To the new Millennials, we can only apologise :(
