Artmusic presents FLAM
By Melanie Pappenheim and Rebecca Askew
Artmusic, the Frome–based international arts organisation, is ten years old this year. As a special birthday present, partners Helen Ottaway and Steve Ehrlicher have organized a treat for themselves, which they know you will also enjoy.
They have invited Melanie Pappenheim and Rebecca Askew to bring their highly acclaimed performance of FLAM to Frome for its West of England Premiere. This virtuosic piece of voice theatre was composed by Orlando Gough and directed by Emma Bernard.
FLAM will be performed at Rook Lane Chapel, Frome on Sunday October 25th 2009 at 2.30 and 4.30 in the afternoon. Rook Lane Arts Cafe will be open, serving delicious traditional teas created by Food Frome from 2.00 – 6.00pm. What a wonderful opportunity to feed body and mind.
The storyline is deceptively simple. The piece is set in a cafe. Two women meet for coffee. They greet each other and sing together – a unique duet, exploring the vocal, physical and comic skills of two extraordinary performers. Critics have described the work as “hilarious”, “accessible”, “provocative” and “a little gem”. The piece is full of wit, drama, tension and beauty. This is definitely an event not to be missed.
amazing, brilliant! Bob and Roberta Smith
