Captain Swing and the Blacksmith
In the first of our Cauldron sessions from a guest curator, author and dancer Beatrice Parvin introduces the wild tale of Captain Swing and the Blacksmith. Set against the agricultural riots of the early 1800s, this original piece, created specially for the Cauldron, combines a stirring story with the powerful folk music of the time, recreated beautifully by the violin wizardry of Frank Biddulph and the rich voices of Emmie Ward and Gili Orbach.
Burn After Reading
Burn After Reading is an exciting and diverse community of emerging young poets, established in 2013 by Jacob Sam-La Rose, that aims to spark life poetics from ‘spoken word’ to ‘page’ and points in between. Usually they can be found electrifying audiences with their dynamic wordplay in Bethnal Green. Tonight they’ll be throwing their verses again into the Cauldron. The performers will be: Lewis Buxton, Antosh Wojcik (Roundhouse Poetry Slam winner 2013 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_zXjfBPfTk), Aisling Fahey (new Young Poet Laureate for London, http://www.spreadtheword.org.uk/resources/view/aisling-fahey-new-young-poet-laureate-for-london, pictured) and Emily Harrison.
