Jeremy Tuplin is a singer-songwriter from Somerset, now living in London. His sophomore album ‘Pink Mirror’ is set to be released by Trapped Animal in March 2019. His lyricism and vocal nuances have been compared to the likes of Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker or Jake Thackray, to, musically, being described as being ‘the missing link between Nick Drake and ‘Space-Oddity’-era Bowie’. His debut album, ‘I Dreamt I Was Astronaut’ came out on Folkwit Records in September 2017. 

Clash Music – “A cosmic gem” 

The Telegraph Culture – “A distinctive, deep vocal that has hints of Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan” 

BBC 6 Music – Tom Robinson – “Unconventional, conversational and intimate” 

Music Match UK – “Wonderfully weird” 

Boomtown Festival – “One of the founding fathers of the lesser known genre of space folk”

Music Musings & Such – “Tuplin’s songs are more like plays or a novel… He projects sweeping stories and worlds and tackles conventional subjects with a fresh perspective.”

Rob Auton: The Time Show (work in progress)

 

‘The Time Show’ is the latest comedy/theatre/spoken word show by writer and performer of some of what he writes Rob Auton.  Following on from his critically acclaimed shows about talking, hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, Rob now turns his attention to time. He will be asking questions such as “What time is it?” and “What is it time?”

 

“Just sad.” Vanessa Feltz

 

‘Thought-provoking, heart-warming and heart-breaking.’ Three Weeks

 

‘Funny, poetic, observant and wholly original. Auton’s brilliant use of language and perfect comic timing throws up laugh after laugh.’ Beyond the Joke

‘A genuine original.Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot.’

The Guardian

‘Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch.’

The Independent

 

‘One of my absolute favourites.

Daniel Kitson

Welcome to the last Polish/English wedding before the borders close, where you, the audience, play the role of the wedding guests led by a charismatic Mistress of Ceremonies. Soon restrictions on mixed marriages will be implemented,but until then it’s keep calm and party on!

Wesele / Wedding is a participatory one woman show, made in the European tradition of absurdist political comedy.This collage of integration stories, raunchy wedding rituals and disco polo sing-alongs, peppered with Polish and Esperanto, interrogates the role of traditional values, family bonds and whether popular culture can bring us together.

RECOMMENDED AGE 18+

Witajcie na ostatnim polsko brytyjskim weselu przed zamknięciem granic, z udziałem publiczności w roli gości weselnych i pod batutą profesjonalnej wodzirejki. Zanim wejdą w życie restrykcje odnośnie zawierania małżeństw mieszanych bawimy się na całego!

Wesele/ Wedding to show, w którym tradycyjne przyśpiewki, tańce i gry weselne, przeplatają sięz

anegdotami ze współczesnego życia emigracyjnego i refleksjami na temat roli tradycji w kształtowaniu tego, kim dziś jesteśmy.

Przy kieliszku słodkiej wódki dla każdego z gości, spróbujemy odpowiedzieć na pytanie, czy Polki wolą Anglików i czy disco polo pokona Brexit?

Show inspirowane dramatem Wyspiańskiego grane jest po angielsku i polsku, z akcentami

międzynarodowego języka Esperanto.
