THE CITY NOT THE CITY is a radio and film documentary about artists who live and create in unique and unconventional homes: in self-builds, shacks, boats, barges and caravans, and the remarkable histories of these environments. The film looks at the draw of the city and its margins. For the project, blues, folk and experimental musicians, including Jazz legend Bobby Wellins, created performances on the edges of a Brighton that may, at first, appear unrecognisable.
A second show sourced from Brighton & Hove charity shops. 60 minutes of crackle, skip and wax warp from the sounds of cheesy listening to film soundtracks, gospel hollering, Glaswegian Funk and spooky girl guide folk; Crooners, Divas, Kazoo blowers, scatting classicists, risque nightclub comediennes, beatmakers, folksingers, Calypso Kings and Disco pioneers. All donated, rejected and tossed aside by the good people of Brighton and Hove.
