Must See Monday – Events of the Week: Manuelita, The Lone Bellow & Independent Venue Week: Bad Sounds

25th January 2016

What: Manuelita // Where: The Wardrobe Theatre // When: Thu 28th – Sat 30th Jan (8pm) // Cost: £8


Revolutionary, proto-feminist, underground spy and the beating heart of South American liberation, Manuela Saenz died in poverty, all but forgotten by the history books – until now.

Blending storytelling, physical theatre, comedy and live music, Lecoq-trained Tamsin Clarke brings Manuelaʼs story of love, loss and revolution vibrantly to life. With accompaniment by Colombian musician and guitarist Camilo Menjura (UK Latin American Musician Of The Year 2014), Manuelita promises audiences a heart-swelling, toe-tapping night out at the theatre.

The Lone Bellow @ Thekla // Weds 27th Jan // Cost: £13.20
This alt-country Brooklyn trio, comprising Zach Williams, Kanene Donehey Pipkin and Brian Elmquist, write melancholic lyrics on relationships, love, grief, and spirituality with swelling three-part harmonies and rousing group-sung choruses. Their smooth country-folk sound has seen them compared to The Lumineers and The Civil Wars.
