‘The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing’: sound art satire at Trellick Towers

Trellick Tower

An abandoned car park might not be the usual backdrop for drama, but it seems a disused high rise is the perfect setting for ground breaking noise opera, ‘The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing’.

A collaboration between The NeoFuturist Collective, acclaimed actor and sound artist, Joseph Young, (who has exhibited at the V&A, Tate Modern and the Whitechapel Gallery), and immersive theatre company Fruit for the Apocalypse, (founded by Harry Ross, and Helen Scarlett O’Neil of Secret Cinema), ‘The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing’ will see Trellick Tower turn all theatrical for Kensington & Chelsea’s InTRANSIT festival.

The experimental show is a reaction to the global economic crisis and recent ‘anti-hipster’ movements and tells the tale of exploitative capitalist investment company ‘Skinny Vintage’. With recordings from around the world, this electronically manipulated political composition is set to stealthily defend creative culture in a surprising and provocative performance. Be there or be unaware. Kitty Knowles

‘The Ballad of Skinny Lattes and Vintage Clothing’ runs from July 20-21, at 2pm and 7.30pm, Trellick Tower, Kensington, Tickets £15 . Only audience members are admitted per intimate performance so book your ticket here quick!
