Soundbites at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green Road

Musicians and actors are on stage next week in a series of experimental collaborations.

Soundbites comes to the Rich Mix arts centre in Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch, on Saturday, January 28.

Young writers take two existing tracks sent to them by a music act and create a 15-minute play inspired by the music.

Playwrights taking part are Alice Birch, who has worked with Dalston’s Arcola Theatre, Rachel De-lahay and Tom Morton-Smith. Music is from dirty pop trio Your Girl Likes Us, electronic instrumentalists Talk in Colour and vocalist and guitarist, Abdul Shyllon.

After the three plays, each music act will perform a 20-minute – and it might even turn into a party.
