Aerial presents: Lone Taxidermist, 28 March 2020, from £5 - Book now
Lone Taxidermist presents ‘Marra’: a deep interrogation into the dialect and ceremonies of West Cumbria, endangered voices and esoteric rituals from auctioneers to gurners. A personal exploration into being a first generation immigrant in a small north western farmers town, the exploration will journey outwards, delving into immigrants assimilation into Cumbria. The piece will take the form of a live multi-sensory musical performance and residency.
Lone Taxidermist is the utterly bizarre and otherworldly ruptured activity generated by Cumbrian musician, costume maker, skin decorator, performer and natural provocateur Natalie Sharp. Her performances manifest icons and deities drawn from the corners of the (Post-)Internet. Her performances have been known to turn audiences members into exhibitionists– tales transpiring of sensorial acts of gender bending, food porn and squelchy mass ritual. Sharp effortlessly blends ‘instruments’ which come to hand– whether that be songwriting, multi-instrumentalism or mastery of non-standard instruments like musical saw and theremin, stagecraft, costumes, graphic art, video making, face paint, vocal technique, remixing and DJing.
This event will take place at Sporties at Ambleside Tavern.
