This evening is a night of music, poetry and theatre, featuring an eclectic mix of talent including playwrights Ché Walker and Roy Williams, UK soul legend OMAR, actor Ann Mitchell and jazz performers Claire Martin and Nikki Yeoh.
Che Walker’s Dalston Revolution was on August 23rd, a night of music, theatre and poetry featuring outstanding artists such as the jazz musician and Wac Arts Alumnus Alex Garnett, Wac Arts Drama tutor Ann Mitchell and even a new supporter of Wac Arts, Actor Simon Callow! During the night, Simon Callow, CBE and Ann Mitchell performed Shakespear’s Romeo and Juliet. An excerpt of Che Walker’s thought-provoking play was performed by Che and soap stars, Maddy Hill and Martina Laird. Alex Garnett not only played the Saxophone with the amazing band made up of Wac Arts Alumni but also sang and got everyone tapping their toes and dancing in their seats!
We would like to thank all the fantastic artists who participated in the Revolution event and thrilled us with their talent! With their help, we were able to raise £1300 which will pay for five students to attend our weekend programmes for a year! Due to its success Che will be hosting another Revolution event on Monday, September 21st at Theatre Royal Stratford East. With another star studded cast including Wac Arts Alumnus and Jazz phenomenon Julian Joseph!
