[Live Art Club] - Luke Wright

Stay-at-Home Dandy

Friday 15 May
8pm


Decadent boozehound Luke Wright would love to spend his life flouncing around looking fabulous, but back in rural Suffolk he’s got the school run to do. Naval-gazing is all very well, but other people can be magic.

Wright tells stories in visceral verse from neglected corners of Britain. Meet the cane-swinging, merlot-glugging “Bastard of Bungay;” spend half-term with lonely science teacher Mr Hooper; and cry “NOT IN MY NAME” with the irate villagers of Much Harpingon.

By turns funny, poignant and political, this stay-at-home dandy celebrates ordinary people having extraordinary moments, then sticks a “champagne-rinsed rococo boot” into the swines who run things.

Performance runs c. 60 mins (no interval)

Artist Marcia X was born and raised in Chicago, IL to immigrant parents in 1985. Inspired by her early travels to the Caribbean and US history & politics, she predominantly works in themes relating to the experience of the Diaspora, history, feminism, politics and socioeconomic issues. As a multidisciplinary artist, her mediums vary from print to installation, and for Norwich Art Centre’s [Live] Art Club event will be reciting her spoken word on Afro Hair and the colonial gaze.
