Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, 1833. Edmund Kean, the greatest actor of his generation, has collapsed on stage whilst playing Othello. A young black American actor has been asked to take over the role. But as the public riot in the streets over the abolition of slavery, how will the cast, critics and audience react to the revolution taking place in the theatre?
Imagined experiences based on the true story of Ira Aldridge.

A Poetic Antidote to City Life

See on Scoop.itLondon Life

“..a beautiful passage by Anaïs Nin from Diary of Anaïs Nin Volume 5 1947-1955: Vol. 5 (1947-1955) (public library), in which she — very much a city woman, but one with a deep sensitivity to the poetic and a hunger for existential truth — captures the remarkable awakening that happens when we shed our city skin and plunge into nature with joy and abandon”

 

ty Anna Popova

for reminding us that sometimes we simply must get away from the city life we love!

Tuesday’s Music: To Kill A King presents ‘Choices’ (feat Bastille, Emily Wood & More)

See on Scoop.itMusic for a London Life

This is a joyful collaboration, introducing me to some very talented ‘young guns’ on the ever-evolving folk scene. I’m loving the cumulative musical effect here, like a flower opening slowly , to reveal its inner beauty. There is such pleasure to be gained in watching the video as it moves along -it’s moving in more ways than one! I love the innocence and purity and strength in numbers!If you like them too -how could you not! I think this video is going to be released at Christmas, profits to go to charity. Bless.

Natalie did a brilliant set @ Station Sessions/ King’s Cross last Thursday. It must have been difficult for her to perform with such intensity, with the audience standing only a few feet away..but hey! We really appreciated your stunning performance! The travellers from Paris looked gobsmacked..what a great advert for London for those just arriving @ St Pancras International!  Cool. Very cool.
