@Disturbance 

Hullo Dear Player, here we are with news of some true gems. We talk to award winning poet Yomi Sode about revolutionary love and headlining Tottenham Literature Festival with Bernadine Evaristo; co-founders of immersive theatre company du-jour Swamp Motel, Ollie Jones and Clem Garrity chat to us about The Drop (running until Feb); and British-Hungarian writer and interdisciplinary artist Laura Lynes writes for Run Riot about creating queer avatars for a special new installation at @Disturbance (more on that coming up). 

We're also running ticket competitions to see Stevie Nicks-esque Katy J Pearson live at Village Underground; attend a talk (with ice cream) between Director of Tate Modern and artist Chila Kumari Singh Burman; pop along to Le Gateau Chocolat & Jonny Woo's show at Soho Theatre; or see punk-doc King Rock at the Rio Cinema with post screening Q&A with Stewart Lee. 

And now, introducing our Guest Editor this week, Deen Atger, curator of @Disturbance at Ugly Duck.

Deen describes @Disturbance as sensual, surreal, and queer. @Disturbance is a night of radical performances and art installations by international artists taking place at Ugly Duck (a converted Victorian warehouse near Bermondsey) and online on Tuesday 30 November.

In Deen's Run Riot interview with writer and broadcaster Jayson Mansaray they chat about supporting those underrepresented in the arts, curating with LGBTQI+ artists for an 'audience of everyone', and creating new artistic notions of queerness, satire and storytelling. One of the intentions for @Disturbance is for its audience to 'feel good'. What more could we want?

Well, dear player, engage how you can, enjoy, stay safe. We'll write again soon. Bottoms up! Jamie x
