The Joyous Thing #5

4 Apr-6 Apr 2024

Plymouth PL1 3NY


In partnership with Outlands, KARST presents a weekend of experimental music and performance in Plymouth. The Joyous Thing #5 is an opportunity to experience talking, dancing, singing and socialising. Together, we will explore the connected themes of collaboration, mutual support, and equality of access - centred around the vital question: how do we continue to keep things Joyous?

Boundary-breaking musicians NikNak and I AM FYA kick off proceedings on Thursday with live performances at Leadworks. On Friday, KARST hosts Penumbra – a new interdisciplinary piece bringing together acclaimed musicians Dali de St Paul & Maxwell Sterling with filmmaker Rebecca Salvadori and light artist Charlie Hope. To conclude the weekend, on Saturday morning artist Rhys Morgan leads a performance by LGBTQIA+ sea shanty choir Seaweed in the Fruit Locker at The Lions Den, followed by a sea swim.

Throughout the weekend KARST and Leadworks will also host a range of talks and workshops focused around producing and presenting experimental and interdisciplinary performance.
