  • Blood Orange

    Blood Orange

    Dance

    Any music lover worth their salt will already have Dev firmly on their radar. A musician with the golden touch, he’s been at the helms of some of the most iconic bands to emerge in the last decade, from the legendary dance punk group, Test Icicles, to the haunting, funk infused Blood Orange. Drawing on genres left and right and producing signature sounds unlike any other, Dev is a force to be reckoned with. He’ll be joining us to discuss the deep influence of synaesthesia on his work (the ability to see sound as colour) and treat us to standout live performance to close out the show.
  • Choire Sicha

    Choire Sicha

    Special Event

    The New Yorker dubs him ‘the anti-blogger’... But, for all that, Choire’s influence can be felt across all reaches of the internet. He’s served as editor of The Gawker (twice), The New York Observer and co-founded The Awl, 'an irreverent, all-purpose, media/culture/politics/think-piece/bear-video clusterfuck' of a website helping us to ‘be less stupid’. He’s even been credited with creating a new idiom. Clearly this anti-blogger knows what he’s doing. He’ll be flip-reversing the lens on his highly acclaimed (and slightly surreal) book Very Recent History to share a tantilising glimpse of the near future of the internet, the subject of his upcoming work.

  • Barbara Nitke

    Barbara Nitke

    Special Event

    Barbara is a photographer who’s work can be seen in galleries across the world (though usually behind a black curtain).  In the 70’s she worked extensively in porn and BDSM industry documenting the professional and personal lives of its stars. Despite the provocative subject, her photos are noted for their unexpectedly lyrical quality, capturing moments of loneliness as well as connection. Her incredible new book ‘American Ecstasy’ sets out to explore this era and to pay tribute to the golden age of porn. She’ll be sharing her unique experiences, her work and personal views on ‘sexual expression’.
  • Marc Abrahams

    Marc Abrahams

    Special Event

    Marc is a scientist, founder and host of the Annual Ig Nobel Prize, which celebrates all things odd, trivial and well, improbable emerging from the world of science. He is at the forefront of academia’s weirdest quests, honouring scientific achievements that make people laugh and then think. Whether it’s a scientific comparison of apples and oranges; research determining whether Kansas is physically flatter than a pancake or a controlled study of cats being dropped, these are the type of ground-breaking experiments you can read about in Marc’s magazine, The Annals of Improbable Research. 

  • Flex (is King) + Deirdre Schoo

    Flex (is King) + Deirdre Schoo

    Special Event

    Flex are a troop of urban, street dancers performing in Brooklyn. Faced with dwindling prospects, and harsh economic conditions, they turned to dance as a constructive channel for their energy. Flex is based around wild dance battles that include (but are not limited to): body popping, gliding, live birds and backflips. They’ll be talking about the importance of the project, while amazing us with one such battle on the night. We’ll be joined by who directed a film about these guys which just made official selection at the Tribecca Film Festival and is out for general release soon.
