Friday 18th July 6-8pm Friday 18th July 6-8pm All are welcome 42 New Briggate Gallery, Leeds, LS1 6NU The main objective of the event is to publicise, gather material, amuse the audience and, of course, liberate and empower the down-trodden masses. The audience will be invited to hand over material/documents of rejections, disappointments and personal slights by using questionnaires available on the night or by donating materials they bring along with them. The reward for this will be a drink of their choice. 6pm - 7pm: Improvised Jazz from Rus Pearson (double bass), Sean Foran (Electric Piano) and possibly Matt Bourne (Cello - tbc). Plus music focused on ruining epic compositional climaxes with unmemorable, pointless and plain-wrong musical conclusions. 7.30pm - 8pm: Stand-up style public reading/re-enactment of various rejections, with musical accompaniment facilitated by sculptor Scott Senogles (all 6 foot 7 of him). Expect the unexpected when we score applications/rejections on various 'important' criteria. This is event is part of a summer residency programme in 42 New Briggate for more info visit www.42newbriggate.co.uk.
