Event Description

A satirical extravaganza about China, Britain, imperialism and drugs in the 19th century in poetry & music. See narco-capitalists & Chinese lawmakers slug it out in verse, take part in a poetry slam, and watch the weirdest tea ceremony ever.

With music from legendary writer Charles Shaar Murray; former Flying Lizards singer Deborah Evans-Stickland performing her mega-hit "Money"; DJ Zoe "Lucky Cat" Baxter; and Gary Lammin of The Bermondsey Joyriders in the weirdest tea ceremony you've ever seen.

Have your photograph taken in your finest steampunk paraphernalia on stage by Mrs Sukey Parnell, who has exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, and maybe see it displayed on the interweb.

Written and hosted by cultural provocateur Anna Chen.

Notes from 1999-2000 Prague (A journal frozen in time) in the

This story is true. It takes place from Journal Entry from Prague Czech Republic during my artist residence 1996-2003. Prague Notes:A young man in his recollections, augments in his journals, a glimpse of a time in the past:It seemed a long time ago but still fresh in my mind, a brief glimpse, of time passed, but focused memory, those streets of Prague and those slalom structures, a thousand spires that built the city. The town breathed with the hearts of ancients as well as some surrealism…See More

"Steampunk is rooted in Victoriana, and some real life staples of that era were ghosts and séances.  The supernatural has a comfortable home in steampunk, and lots of us are up for the ride."
