The photography site for sore eyes. Featuring: Art, photography, performance and theatre. With extra writing because I'm also a writer.
It’s not too late you’ll find
For you to change your mind
And prove you’re not part of the misogyny
(Lyrics for one of two karaoke photography songs)
What is a Pub Karaoke Photography Exhibition?
Written as a 10 minute scratch performance for Drunken Nights IV (run by the irony-heavy Drunken Chorus), my Pub Karaoke Photography Exhibition is brand new.
By that, I mean it’s not been done before, as far as I know, unless some Japanese student has done something similar during an inspirational night out Yokohama. But I doubt it.
This Pub Karaoke Photography Exhibition is my continuing attempt to bring photography to new audiences, using cross-platform art – in this case music and performance. An explanation of performance photography is here.
For Drunken Nights IV, which takes place in the Devonshire Cat pub in Sheffield on Wednesday, November 11, I will be badly singing two songs while presenting two photography projects. The two songs, 1970s dance classic I Feel Love by Donna Summer and The Human League’s 1980s anthem Don’t You Want Me, have been bastardised (I changed the lyrics) for what is a milestone moment in my career.
I can’t sing and I don’t like karaoke.
The working titles for the two projects to be performed are:
Drinking, Eating, Puking
NOTE: Images shown here are not necessarily part of the performance project.
