Guys, it would be rather important to me if you were to watch this video. It’s an art project I’ve been developing some time now with my long term artistic collaborator and complete slut Harriett Bradbury. The piece explores a lot of different themes, but I hope you can give me an insight into your thoughts on this deep and moving representation of the times we live in today (ZEITGEISTZEISTZEITGEISTZEITGEIST.) So I give it over to you daaaaahlings, Rhysicles out. Set and costume by Laura Gwen Miles (slut for dairy).
Neon Neon burning bright,
Lets all get fucked on Friday night.
Chalk Dust Cabaret take ‘Pie Eyed to Brighton Fringe Festival
31st May - 2nd June / Basement Brighton / 2 shows a night
An amazing slice of history, the only documented recording of the voice of Virginia Woolf. In this video she delivers a striking essay on the intricacies of what words really mean to us, and the history and future of the English language. And her voice is really something.
Ashes to Ashes, David Bowie. 1980.
So, guess who’s blonde now.
(Hint: the answer is me)
You could feel the war getting ready in the sky that night. The way the clouds moved aside and came back, and the way the stars looked, a million of them swimming between the clouds, like the enemy discs, and the feeling that the sky might fall upon the city and turn it to chalk dust, and the moon go up in red fire; that was how the night felt.

Pie Eyed / Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club / £8/£6
A quiet mid-week pint downstairs at BGWMC?
Thought you could escape your local?
Not tonight. Amongst the fairy lights and shadows Chalk Dust Cabaret lie in wait and as the night ensues, it’s clear nothing is as it seems.
Have you seen the strange man in the corner rummaging through the bins? And that barmaid’s clearly giving you the eye. A rowdy girl’s just entered the scene, hoops bigger than the ash trays and a mad look in her eyes. And who ordered the cheeky stripper?
After their sell-out show at The Roundhouse, Chalk Dust Cabaret return for more.
Pie Eyed is an interactive musing on booze culture where punters collide with the complete unexpected.
