Jerks and fillies lets shake, rattle and roll – people do not say that enough, so against the better wishes of Peru I’m opening with it. Plus, I have been reading Straight from the Fridge Dad, by Max Decharne – a dictionary of early hipster slang, so expect these next few lines to be jam packed full of drape shaped, low-slung, solid sent, stripped down, hopped up and swinging like a gate, expressions. That’s right, full of irritating, self indulgent little hipster phrases that I think makes me sound l like I’m straight from the fridge – just remember who I really am and we’ll get through this, retrospectively referring to it as : that weird phase. If it comforts you, know that I had no choice, hold onto to that. Right, I have some information that I am about to spill onto these pages. Get ready.
We’re doing some shows in London at the Pleasance Theatre in Islington. It’s one show a night for three nights – Bane 1 then Bane 2 and then Bane 3. So cough up your dough, shake the lead outta your shorts and fade out to the Pleasance on September 9th, 10th and 11th. (Kill me).
We’ve also got a bunch of dates in the autumn and winter, have a check on the tour list to see if we’re anywhere near you in the coming months – look out Harrogate, we got two weeks with you in the lead up to Christmas and the goose is getting fat.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has come out to support the show this year – you guys are hip to the tip – pack, shack and stack! (Make it stop).
This year saw us head to Italy at the Circumnavigando Festival Internazionale di Teatro e Circo, thanks to Boris, Sabrina and the rest of you ding dong daddies there. As well as the fantastic Kai Loon and Seng Chew in Malaysia, Bec, Katie and the Live Nation crew in Oz, Laerte, Vitor and Fernanda in Brazil and of course the magnificent Steve Barlow in the north there too. The largest big up though must go to the tremendous Evam in India & Singapore, not only a company doing some really important and brilliant work over there, but terrific hosts that put together our tour with a passion and belief that makes me go all goo goo eyes and wolf whistles, so let’s cop a squat for now. Thanks KK, Sunil and Pavi.
Now, I’m gona hit the bricks and take a bite of the air. I may also scratch myself from the big race and pull the Dutch act. (Apologies to the Netherlands, but it’s for the best). Here’s one of me and Ben back stage in India. See you soon. j
