Richard Price, New West Indian Guide
Trini to the core, with fantastic riffs, nothing quite like it: the characters wondering aloud what will happen to
The Old Church
is excited to announce that they are welcoming poet Anthony Joseph to perform in their space Thursday 22 July at 8 PM.
Anthony is an author, poet and musician, and he will be reading from his most recent novel The Frequency of Magic
, accompanied by some of the UK's finest musicians. He will create an enthralling performance of spoken word and improvised jazz.
“Trini to the core, with fantastic riffs, nothing quite like it: the characters wondering aloud what will happen to them next…” says Richard Price for New West Indian Guide.The Frequency of Magic
is an experimental, magical realist story about Raphael who earns his living as a butcher in a hillside village in rural Trinidad. He is also a would- be author, but there have been so many distractions to the novel he has been writing for forty-one years that many of the characters have lost patience and gone off to do their own thing... but somehow the novel seems to write itself.
Over a tour of 10 dates, Joseph and his ensemble will perform the entirety of The Frequency of Magic
, offering a complete overview of this work whilst promising each audience an entirely unique experience that will not be repeated anywhere else. Produced by Speaking Volumes and funded by Arts Council England.
The Old Church will be adhering to Covid-19 guidelines, with limited capacity. For more information, contact TOC at [email protected]
