Markson Pianos 5-8 Albany Street London, United Kingdom
Look in detail at an everyday life, and you can find art, beauty, inspiration.
"That's Me on the Left, in the Parka" is a solo show about self-consciousness and the nature of love taking place at an unusual venue: Markson Piano Store in Central London. It presents real lives of ordinary people - family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues - set to music, with slides, film & humor.
"Parka" is self-accompanied with live original music throughout - played on a homemade upright piano that comes to life. It's projected on and crawled inside; it moves on its own, trap doors open and additional instruments pop up; the back lifts off, drawers pull out and walls swivel until everything - inside and out - is open.
There are a very limited number of tickets each night - don't miss this unique event...
Some nice reviews:

"Idiosyncratic & Beguiling" - Guardian
"Karper is a profoundly interesting storyteller" - Scotsman
