Uncanny Valley

A new show from Spacedog and Professor Elemental.

7:30pm and 9:15pm (show lasts 75 minutes) Thursday 26 – Saturday 28 August 2010
Hen & Chickens Theatre
109 St Paul’s Road
London N1 2NA
Tickets £8.50 (book online)

Musicians play live with decrepit dolls, theremins and robots in this eerie entertainment, exploring our fears of the almost human – from golems to ventriloquists’ dummies.

Hot from their sell-out run on the Brighton Festival Fringe, dreamlike musical and mechanical inventors Spacedog join forces with gentleman rapper Professor Elemental, known for his YouTube sensation Cup of Brown Joy, a paean to the pleasures of drinking tea.

Death ballads, unsettling live robotics and tales of the professor’s extreme taxidermy experiments, in a night that will take you to the darkest reaches of your mind.

“One of the most inventive acts playing at the moment”, Melita Dennett

“Eerie, evocative and hilarious – tremendous fun”, Roger Highfield.

“A stand-out moment of psychedelic neo-Victorian rap genius”, Monkey Boxing magazine.

Not suitable for children.
