Hoje em Londres é noite de "Leituras Perdidas"

"The Lost Lectures is a unique underground series that pushes the lecture format to its creative limits, hosting enchanting talks from incredible secret locations. They hit the Spiegeltent this summer for one night only in carnival of incendiary ideas, dark demos and World Class speakers: expect dancing, human experiments and, most importantly, Bingo. Ladies and Gentlemen this is ‘The Lost Circus’.

Speakers on the night include:

Jonny Woo

As far as nightlife is concerned, Jonny is one of London’s most notorious figures. He’s been attributed with ‘bringing back’ cabaret in the early 2000s and changing the face of Bingo forever. His seminal event, Gay Bingo was a far cry from anything you’ll see at Gala. Though difficult to categorise, it drew on burlesque, performance art, pyrotechnics, and adult entrainment, causing 348 audience members to walk in shock over the course of its performances (so definitely not one for granny). The show has toured across the world and has been hosted in seedy back alley bars, as well as prestigious art galleries and theatres. His previous works have involved everything from bouncing yetis to public urination, so remember to bring an umbrella (Ha!) not really, he’s promised to keep it clean this time! Kinda.

Greg Foot

Greg is a Science Daredevil & TV Presenter, who has been shot, frozen, electrocuted and buried alive in the name of science. He’s even gone under the knife to find out what human’s taste of. Luckily he won’t be doing any of this on the night -  that would be too messy and void our insurance. However he is going to be diving into the dark side of science: Alchemy. He’ll be detonating a batch of homemade gunpowder and giving us a booming tour of other explosives that have shaped the world, including nitroglycerin, uncovering just what gives fireworks their shape, colour and BANG.

Anna Meredith

Anna is one of the most industrious composers around. She works across a spectrum of genres, from Classical to Electropop (she’s been Composer in Residence with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and had work commissioned for the Proms, she’s also signed to ultra cool record label Moshi Moshi). Using everything from traditional instruments to body parts and even MRI scanners, she weaves complicated sound tapestries that are at times compelling, at times other-worldly. She’ll be joining us to discuss music, finding inspiration in unusual places and along with her band close out the show with her band with her usual overblown melange of brash synth-and-drums.
