Chicks on Speed, Sand and Ravi Deepres
presented in collaboration with Capsule The Medicine Bar, The Custard Factory
Tickets: 5/3.50
Box Office: 0121 440 3838

A unique collaboration between internationally acclaimed Munich based music and performance trio Chicks on Speed, Birmingham based musicians Sand and visual artist Ravi Deepres resulting in an evening of cult entertainment at The Medicine Bar.

A poster campaign in and around the city centre will be devised, created and implemented by Chicks on Speed, who will be in residence at Capsule/the Medicine Bar, working on installation material for one week prior to the event.

All of the artists have been commissioned to work together, prior to the event, Chick A, Chick M and friends providing text, performance and costume with Sand (Satellite Records) Layering musical elements and Birmingham based artist Ravi Deepres providing visual projections.

Saturday night will see the fruits of a two month collaboration under the title d>generate.

Chicks take on the Beatles during the week, when they perform on the roof of the Ikon Gallery and on Saturday night, the lake at the Custard Factory will be transformed into the site for a one-off sonically and visually challenging evening; a piece commissioned by Fierce! specifically for this nights performance.

With a DJ line-up of Luke Vibert and Echo Boy supported by Brum talent Adam Regan (Different Drummer/Leftfoot), Chris Read (Substance) and the Medicine Bar's own Simon Fathead."
