Kissing The Shotgun Goodnight

THU 21 SEP 2017 | 7.30pm | Full £10 Conc £6 |AGE 16 plus

Clouds of haze and crumbling walls of transcendent noise, KISSING THE SHOTGUN GOODNIGHT is a neo-noir fever dream and 120 decibel suicide note. A juggernaut of music-theatre. Three musicians, piano corpses and the sci-fi poetry of a disembodied voice. A nocturnal meditation crooned into the swollen abyss. Soothing drones and crushing metal, swamps of feedback and pools of reverb, clattering rhythms and throbbing bass. A return to the womb for those who wish they could crawl back inside mother to hide.

Supported by Arts Council England. Originally commissioned by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Cambridge Junction, Ovalhouse, Theatre in the Mill, and Theatr Iolo. With thanks to Hackney Showroom.
