Himali Singh Soin + David Tappeser @ Rich Mix, Sep 16

15 September 2016

Himali Singh Soin and David Tappeser are presenting performance lecture ‘You Really Got Me Now’ at London’s Rich Mix on September 16.

As part of the East London venue’s Radical Ideas programme, the event comes introduced with a press release that offers the tagline “A story about love, dreams and imaginary borders at the confluence of multiple realities” and a tongue-in-cheek trailer (see below).

The performance is described as an experimental, multi-faceted account of “a reconstituted/remembered past”, featuring Indian poet Sing Soin —who recently took part in The White Pube’s Zayn Malik Zindabad screening —and German jazz musician Tappeser. It will include a spoken word and music performance following the narrative of the two artist’s history together, as mapped out and reconstructed via their words, sounds “artifacts, memorabilia and digital traces”.

See the Rich Mix website for details.**
