The Oral Tradition
Paul Carr - The Tribute
Sunday 25 August, 3.00 - 4.00pm
Broadcast live at thisistomorrow.info
For his contribution to The Oral Tradition, Paul Carr will bring together and perform scripted dialogue, music and text for THE TRIBUTE, the latest episode in THE FIFTH RUNWAY RADIO TOUR series.
For the past two years, Carr has built the fictional South East London district of Endwell through the sporadic broadcasts of his fictional self, a local radio DJ, observing the daily goings on of a district populated entirely of misfits, disgruntled workers, pubs, and the Green Bay Tourist Information Centre, where you can pick up items such as the Green Bay souvenir horse.
Co-produced with Jenna Collins.
The Oral Tradition is a series of short projects focusing on performed narrative. The spoken word, from mythic folklore to the call centre script, is a strong influence in the work of both Jockum Nordström and Emma Hart and this programme has been developed in response to these evolving traditions. The performances take place over four weeks, drawing on diverse source material including epic poetry, digital history and contemporary social protest.
