“The Milk Museum & Stella Maris”

This event looks great so go if you can.

* * *

Oasis Café Theatre proudly present a frankly unusual combination of words and music.

Surreal performance artist Peter Blegvad is joined on this most auspicious of dates by singers of ancient music, Stella Maris for an evening of words, music and, er… illustrations.

Friday 13th May 2005

at the Orange Studio (2nd Floor), Cannon Street, Birmingham, B2 5EP

Bar open at 6.30pm. Performances from 7.30 – 9pm

The Event

The Milk Museum is a creation of the surreal mind of artist-performer Peter Blegvad. As its curator, he is responsible for both collection and interpretation, and his virtual tour will give you a new perspective on the "white stuff". Parts of it have been published in The Phantom Museum and Henry Wellcome¹s Collection of Medical Curiosities (Profile Books 2003). "Peter Blegvad¹s excursion on milk is brilliant", wrote Ian Sansom in The Guardian. Blegvad¹s eclectic output includes Leviathan and The Pedestrian cartoons and his "eartoons"’ on BBC Radio 3’s The Verb, which won him a Sony Award in 2003. Peter will be joined by Stella Maris for performances of ancient music.

Long live the incongruous and daring juxstaposition of artforms!
