Enjoy a good workout but put off by the Euro trance soundtrack your gym has to offer? Well your unlikely saviour could well be Jarvis Cocker.
For this week only Jarvis and his band will be inviting members of the public to participate in live musical improvisations (participants must bring their own instruments – amplification provided), and will provide live musical accompaniment to various exercise classes, art workshops and much more - to give you a taster sessions include hula-hooping, live graffiti, burlesque classes and pole dancing. Jarvis will also be inviting surprise guest artists to come & perform with them at various times during the residency.
The whole event will be webcast via www.jarviscocker.net where you can also read the “manifesto” that accompanied the Parisian version Jarvis curated earlier this year to get a flavour of what it’s all about.
The activity starts today and runs for the week at Village Underground in Shoreditch. For more information and to buy tickets go to www.jarviscocker.net
