peachy coochie

Posted in sought by juliobesq on June 23, 2008

thursday 26th June sees the last in the season of david gale’s sublime peachy coochie nights.

“Just a projector and 20 images. Just 20 seconds per image. During those 20 seconds the Presenter talks about the image. So simple. So precise. So demanding. This is the Peachy Coochy Way.” 

“David Gale, ever keen to launch a nationwide performance must-have, is curating a series of Peachy Coochy events at ArtsAdmin’s new, stylish yet reassuring Bar. Each event features six Coocheurs, or Presenters, drawn from many walks of life. Each Coocheur will compose a verbal response to 20 images of their choice. The images need not be narratively linked but randomness is frowned upon. Thematic associations are embraced. Each presentation lasts 6 minutes and 40 seconds. There will be gaps between presentations for drinking and light conversation.”

i hear rumours that he turned down having his night franchised into a celebrity guest hosted tv series. respect.
 
the arts admin site says the show is sold out, it may be worth ringing for tickets. or make a note to attend the next series when announced in september. one of london’s current treasures.
