Forest Publications presents…
The Golden Hour is a literary cabaret which has played to sold-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is poetry and prose, original eclectic songs and visual amazement. It is physical and mental. It is a reading. It is a gig. It is stunning puppetry. It is a party. It will be in english.
Readers / Writers:
Ryan Van Winkle – poems & stories from the Reader in Residence at the Scottish Poetry Library.
Nick Holdstock – short stories which grow inside you like golden crocuses.
Benjamin Morris – Poetry and life lessons from the number one gentleman.
Jason Morton – stories that can eat bricks.
Jane Flett – seamstress of most fetching stories.
Music / Song Writers:
Billy Liar – Acoustic + infectious punk.
Hailey Beavis – subtle guitar, a bed for a voice, both personal and touching.
Jed Milroy – singer songwriter and hunter finally back from the Woods.
Withered Hand – intense, eccentric, bittersweet and very wry original songs.
Jonny Berliner – Joyus songs about crustacaens, exhaustion, and gluecose.
A cast of hand-drawn marionettes are magically brought to life. This is what happens at the accidental meeting of inkblots, photocopies, cardboard, angle-poise lamps, the occasional table, video technology, a laptop and a banana box.
Joining us in Berlin will be the amazing all-dancing Exploading DJ & DJ Dirk Markham
Please tell everyone you know in these cities. We hope to see you there!
