This is the most unlikely art event ever to be promoted in Thornton Heath… A theatre event about the life of Derek Jarman the indie film-maker who died in 1994 aged 52. The theatre group is called ‘Project Adorno’ – Theodor Adorno was a German critical theorist who died in 1969 and was part of the Frankfurt School before the Nazi’s shut it down. He was critical of the mass media and thought art was the only place where critical thinking was possible. Having read the Wikipedia pages linked above you’ll have all the background you need and probably much more, for all I know. The LIVE PERFORMANCE with original songs, films and stuff by Project Adorno is at Thornton Heath Library on Wednesday 11th February at 7pm to 9pm. Tickets are free to collect in person from the library. Go Get ’em! Oh, it is called “Jarman In Pieces”
Did anyone go? What was it like?
