Performances from:

Adham Faramawy
POW-WOW (Adam Latham, Rich Cash & Alec Dunnachie)

To coincide with the Nail the Cross music festival, Take Courage presents an afternoon of energetic and anarchic performance art.

Alec Dunnachie and Adam Latham will appear as Simon Smith and his Amazing Dancing Bear, assisted by Rich Cash (of the XX Teens). Exotic tribal head-dresses and shimmery curtains from Blackpool combine with Dadaist poetry, American indian pow-wow ritual and '60s working-class pop culture.

Adham Faramawy presents ancient esoteric mysticism for the MTV generation, through glossolalic monologues recited simultaneously by the artist and a computer-generated voice, all set to a live improvised drum soundtrack.

For the finale, Scottee promises to reinject bathtime with the glamour it so often lacks, with an exuberant new interpretation of Tchaikovsky's ballet, Swan Lake.
