The Last of England (Live Score) #PalaceFilmFest

— The Cube
Brexit Special: Derek Jarmans, The Last of England, presented with a live score by The Palace Artists.
price: Headfirst Tickets


Start Time: 19:20

Director: Derek Jarman, United Kingdom, 1987, 93 mins


A Brexit Special: Tilda Swinton stars in cult queer film director, Derek Jarman’s, personal commentary on the decline of his country in a language closer to poetry than prose. A dark meditation on London under Thatcher. In 1987, in a world where where homosexuality and AIDs victims were looked down upon, Derek Jarman acted as a filmic spokesperson for those who remained marginalised. The Last of England is an angrily poetic, personal portrayal of a country that he saw, was in ruins. Through the experimental form, through the post-apocalyptic depiction of the country, Derek’s film dismantles the establishment and highlights the horrors of modern-day Britain through a dream-like state. Experience this unique screening with a live improvised score from The Palace Collective artists Joe Summers, Rosa Irvin-Clark and Thomas Summers.

Joe Summers is joined by two talented multi-instrumentalists, Rosa Irwin-Clark and Thomas Summers, to debut a new live score for Derek Jarman’s The Last of England, a Brexit special using improvised violin, voice, objects, guitar and feedback. Joe’s sound work draws heavily on improvisation, often using acoustic manipulation and feedback. He hosts a regular radio show on Resonance Extra and co-runs the experimental music imprint First Terrace Records. Violinist and song-collector Rosa is an artist working in site-responsive performance and self-organised arts events. Rosa’s practice investigates and is informed by non-hierarchical collaboration, embodied knowledge and the oral tradition. Tom is a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer, producing music under his Cold Water Music alias.
