That is until the end of June, all updates on the MAD Cabaret at the Cowley Club in Brighton on Thursday 28th June from &pm will appear on our Mad Cab event page. Meanwhile, updates on the Nuclear refrain project more widely will miraculously appear on our Crowdfunder page - where you can support us with a little of your hard-earned cash, your peace crane folding efforts, and/or your ideas (so, this blog will be quiet for a while, but then...)
Stop Press: The MAD Cabaret will star Atilla the Stockbroker!
As the MAD Cabaret on 28th June at the Cowley Club in Brighton comes together, peace cranes took a moment out this weekend to enjoy the sunset over Cardigan Bay.
The crazy list of fab acts for the MAD Cabaret continues to be revealed on an almost daily basis. So far, sensational singer song-writers Phil Johnstone, Mike Reinstein and Robb Johnson... More big names of comedy and performance poetry coming, including the ultimate Brighton cabaret act coup! Have a guess, go on (you'll be gobsmacked)
Mutually Assured Distraction at the Cowley Club in Brighton, 7 till 11pm, Thursday 28th June...
It'll be a blast!
A good friend - no names mentioned - set out to help our project by folding some peace cranes. She managed this (see photo below).
Our Nuclear Refrain crowdfunder is up and running - please donate what you can and don't let that be a dead duck too!
This Stop the War panel discussion is well worth a listen, especially Mark Serwotka (from about 1 hour 3 minutes in). A friend, remarked that 'it makes me feel depressed that it (opposition to nuclear weapons) still sounds relevant 40 years after first being arrested at Molesworth...' Mark Serwotka, though, not only retains a very realistic sounding optimism, he also develops an inspirational vision of the part that ordinary people - workers - can play through membership of their trade unions.
Cranes take off! We've launched our crowdfunder 'Nuclear refrain'. Help us publish a book, organise a cabaret, stage an action, mount an exhibition and keep the project and its active critique of Trident replacement, deterrence and mutually assured destruction in the air. But we certainly don't just want your money. Even more important, we'd like you to participate in the project with ideas, folding peace cranes and taking it off on tangents with related projects of your own.
In today's bonkers blog post: How peace cranes give birth, cranes take coffee break, and 'these cranes are a real handful!'
STOP PRESS: The Mutually Assured Distraction cabaret is confirmed for the evening of 28th June 2018 in the Cowley Club in Brighton. Watch this space for confirmation of very special MAD guests...
Meanwhile, cranes have taken a conceptual turn and gone mobile!
I am he as you are he as you are me, and we are all together
What's going on?
A story, essay, lyric or rhyme with no reason almost every day...
