Inky Fingers presents…a night of spoken word and musical marvels!

As part of their 2012 Minifest, Inky Fingers brings a showcase of the best in UK spoken word to the Festival Club. With top poets and performers alongside fantastic musical acts, it’s a night of words and wonders.

FEATURING

TRAMP

A Dadaist music show combining a series of songs, stories and awkward choreographies. Exploring an odd mix of everyday situations such as playing in the park, youth suicide, friendship and animal love, TRAMP is concurrently an adventure of the fragile, raw, beautiful and ironic.

TEMPER TEMPER – THE PAIN OF DESIRE

Temper Temper’s original epic sound fuses muscular jazz and glittering blues with a richly textured visual landscape, led by Wendy Bevan’s hauntingly beautiful voice. Her otherworldly performance as a statuesque, ghostly femme fatale echoes the Pain of Desire.

WHAT’S HE BUILDING IN THERE?

A wonderfully absurd, dark-comedy about a carpenter who is having an affair… with a chair. This Lynchian nightmare is accompanied by a live, original score.

TELFER & TREEBY

Dickson Telfer is a Scots storyteller and chocolate addict; William Treeby a musician and visual artist — together they present a medley of short stories – light-hearted; bittersweet; surreal; served on a bed of music.
