Amplified | Daring Pairings Festival 2009


2 November 2009 Hampstead Theatre - Daring Pairings Festival


A band playing a concept album. Some poets spitting rhymes. A story about birth, death and everything in between. nabokov mixes an acclaimed playwright with musicians and poets to create a multi-genre theatrical mash-up.

We’ve been invited by Hampstead Theatre to create two brand new pieces of work for their Daring Pairings Festival, which we’re performing on Monday 2nd November at 9:30pm.

Hampstead challenged us to pair a playwright with artists from other disciplines, and we’ve got some awesome head-to-heads for you. Our writer-in-residence Joel Horwood is penning two scripts, one in collaboration with composer Arthur Darvill (Been So Long), and another with Kate Tempest, Dockers MC and [verb]swish – three of the best spoken word artists around.

We’re calling the night Amplified. It’s going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen.
