Live acts combine with interactive performances and installations for a raucous and ghoulish night out where audiences can be zombified by hair and make up experts and then marry their dead bride or groom in the Happily Ever Afterlife Chapel.
The evening will feature Birmingham’s own Misty’s Big Adventure, who will perform an eclectic mix of pop, jazz, psychedeliia, two tone, folk and punk, and a set of original songs performed by locally-born actor, Arthur Darvill, known for his roles in Doctor Who and Broadchurch, and the stage adaptation of Once.
There will also be a performance of My Thoughts On Leaving You, a short comedy musical by one of the UK’s hottest writers, Nick Payne, which forms part of SYMPHONY. Nick Payne won the Evening Standard Award for Best Play with Constellations, and has twice been nominated for an Olivier award.
Plus there will be additional live music from musical anarchists Freelance Mourners, a DJ set from Birmingham legends Hot Wax, playing classic funk, soul, hip hop and party tunes till late, and much more.
An extravaganza of live theatre, music, cabaret, comedy, poetry an
d visual art wrapped up in a big fat party, the nabokov Arts Club, previously featured in The Guardian, Time Out’s Hot Picks and Critics’ Choice, and The Independent’s ‘Best Nights Out’, showcases the best new work, first, from the most exciting emerging artists alongside some of the biggest names in the business.
We're excited to be bringing the nabokov Arts Club to Birmingham, for only its second ever appearance outside London.
