See the light: neon brightens up the gloomy nights

Posted at 2:00 pm, November 21, 2012 in Arts & Entertainment
God's Own Junkyard

Fans of all things neon and gaudy, rejoice, this week there’s a couple of technicolour delights to brighten up your life. First off, neon artist Chris Bracey presents God’s Own Junkyard at the Circus of Soho. Having enjoyed an illuminating career in the film industry – working with directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan – Chris is showing old and new work from his vast collection alongside fairground pieces, rock slogans, circus and movie signs and signage rescued from Soho’s seedy nightclub past.

Neon FridayIf that’s not enough to temporarily dazzle you, on Friday November 23 the Battersea Arts Centre is hosting Neon Friday, a theatrical double-bill of Bruce Nauman proportions from experimental theatre company, Forced Entertainment. There’ll be a performance of their latest productions, ‘The Coming Storm’ and ‘Sight Is The Sense That Dying People Tend To Lose First’, as well as readings from company director Tim Etchells’ latest book, ‘Vacuum Days’. There’ll also be a DJ set, all set amid a building brimming with blinking neons.
