From the Lips to the Moon – May
A new-exquisite-inclusive-challenging-relaxing-empowering-exciting-mindbending night out in London. Expect riveting live music, mind-bending beats, absurd texts, fierce poetry and hypnotic visuals.
From the Lips to the Moon is a collaboration between live-electronic music wizard Pouya Ehsaei and voice-shifting writer Tara Fatehi. Pouya and Tara curate From the Lips to the Moon as regular music and poetry nights at Reference Point where they invite poets, musicians and visual artists to join them on stage in creating one-off live performances.
From the Lips to the Moon is coming back to Reference Point with a great lineup of poets and musicians. Palestinian oud player, Reem Anbar, will bring in the emotive depths of melodies from the Levant and beyond. Palestinian-Jordanian poet and writer of the novella Yes, I Am A Destroyer, Mira Mattar, and award winning writer and poet and director of the87press Azad Ashim Sharma will be sharing their poems live. And in between hosting, singing and shapeshifting, Tara Fatehi will tickle your senses and brains. All this is merged into each other with the at times eerie at times dancy music and soundscape played live by Pouya Ehsaei and hypnotic visuals generated live by Sadler Johnson (2 Digit Visuals). We’ll start and end the evening with tunes selected by Luma on the decks. We have more ‘secret’ guests who will be announced on the day.
