Performative interlude with Neither Am I Friday 19th June

Neither Am I: Live at the Apollo this Friday

Friday 20th June @ Apollo Home Entertainment, 29 Norwood Road, Herne Hill, London, SE24.

Neither Am I and their verbal puppet-show of minor-celebrity satire invite you to a splurge of high-end theory, low-end humour and middlebrow celebrity at the second live wordbath from south London’s most infamous literary nobodies.

Featuring a rag-tag assembly of world-famous authors, amateur wordscratchers and journeyman yarnpeddlars, the randomly selected and completely anonymous Neither Am I Performance Squad will be unleashing a hivemind monologue of verse and fable using only their voices in a virtuoso rendition of under-the-counter material and over-the-top delivery.

With the assistance of performance artist Harriet Poole, this one-off event will summon the ghosts of rom-coms, chick-flicks, soft porn and low-budget horror to frolic between the exhumed racks and display cases of the Apollo video shop.

Are you a member? Neither Am I.

FREE admission. Discounted bar opens 7pm. Neither Am I on-stage at 8.30pm.

Certificate 18: This spoken word performance contains strong language, long sentences and extended metaphors of a graphically sexual nature.
