Who: open to all
When: Sunday 28th May 11-6pm
Details: As part of the Russia 17 Festival across Cardiff & the Chapter Arts Centre Art Car Bootique – the loose theme for this year is ‘Revolution’
As a response to this Elysium gallery have decided to hold a low-fi, folk festival, hero worshipping at the altar of a fictional 1960’s Scandinavian pop star called Torn Fluggulssohn. We are holding a day of moustache, mullet wig wearing, dancing, nose flute playing and performances.
Taking inspiration from the underground Beatles fan club that grew in soviet era Russia that acted as a counter culture to the strict regime. So we are looking at celebrity hero worship to an ‘icon’ who is anything but. If you go to our Facebook page and join the Fluggulssohn Fest 2017 event you will find a full made up biography on him and what we are doing.
A group of us from Swansea will be turning up as the Torn Fluggulssohn appreciation society and figure heading this. We are looking for artists to get involved by performing in some way or just rounding up troops to join us in a day of moustache wearing and silliness. We are looking at splitting up the day with 5/6 performances/events linked together with music and strangeness.
