Dennis Potter in The Present Tense – by Project Adorno
TV dramatist and playwright Dennis Potter was the ultimate Marmite figure – one minute delighting millions with musical plays such as The Singing Detective and Pennies From Heaven, the next causing outrage and controversy with productions such as Blackeyes and Brimstone & Treacle. In this performance piece, electro-acoustic duo Project Adorno, present a contemporary interpretation of Potter, through an ambient seque of original songs, video and spoken word extracts from people who knew or had some connection to him and his work.
Also appearing singer/songwriter Phil Jeays ‘The finest songwriter I’ve heard for years.’ Tom Robinson
