CELLO TO CHECKERS PACKET (article first published : 2002-06-9)

The “NOT” Festival features a new music show Cello to Checkers Packet from June 20 to 23.

Ellis Pearson and Brendan Jury have combined their love for music and theatre in a show called Cello to Checkers Packet. It features powerful music created in an entertaining and theatrical way. Using surprising objects and an array of musical instruments the audience is taken on an emotional journey that begins with a breath and ends with an orchestral explosion. This is for adults and other young people.

Jury plays electric viola, Pearson plays cello, accordion, a lavatory to name but a few instruments and tries his hand at cooking popcorn. The music is original: some with lyrics, some without. The overall effect is neither typically Pearson nor typically Jury. Rather there is a unique blend and something completely new, beautiful and utterly original.

The show is 55 minutes long and will be performed at The “NOT” Festival at Durban High School on June 20 at 18h30, June 22 at 19h00, June 23 at 15h00. For more details ring Sue on 082 882-9869.
