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.

I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
