One of the UK’s most innovative ensembles, melding heart-rending improvisation with gritty folk and roots music, Dead Rat Orchestra present their own live soundtrack to the classic, and possibly first ever, feature length documentary Nanook of the North.

 

Released in 1922, R. J. Flaherty’s film portrays “love and life in the actual artic”, following the daily trials of Inuits on the edges of the Artic circle. A film not without its controversies: following the performance there will be a discussion with the band and leading academics.

Furious Folly Trailer 2015 from OCM on Vimeo.

 

Last year we supported Mark Anderson’s new outdoor show, Furious Folly in Newbury. An immersive open-air collage of sound, kinetic devices, pyrotechnics and performance, inspired by the Dadaists movement of the early 20th Century.

 

Furious Folly uses the Dada ethos to rail against the inhumanity and senselessness of conflict past and present. You might be interested to know the show will be premiered in full in Belgium this spring as part of Poperinge 14-18 Life Behind The Lines.
