The Chinaski Sessions

Fri 9 - Sat 10 Nov 2012 | 7.30pm | £11/£8

Trapped in a rock band’s home studio as they try to finish their new album, virtuoso Belgian math rock duo I Love Sarah (Jeroen Stevens/Rutger De Brabander) and four of Scotland’s best dancers occupy a Bukowski-inspired halfway house, where lowlifes can hang out, play, dance and dream amongst copious amounts of beer and bravaderie.

But as the rock-den sessions become a playing field for old grievances, one-upmanship and reconciliations, lo-fi beginnings become hi-fi horrors as the fine line between the everyday and the bizarre is trampled. Vicious drumming, cutting wit and cunning moves emerge from the wreckage of the night, forming a microcosm of manhood which stretches from sex-driven smut to sublime creative insight.

“Fast-moving, dramatic, performed with demonic energy and sly polish… this is a triumph for all concerned – it has to tour.”
