Tom Adams presents Still Score – 7.30pm (Tickets in WeGotTickets and on the door £10/ £8)

Part music gig, part theatre, part love letter!

Tom Adams Still Score 2

In February 2013, Tom bought a slide projector and 500 slides from eBay. The slides were of people he did not know but he could not help asking, ‘What is their story?’

Performer and Composer Tom Adams performs a live soundtrack of music, comedy and stories to these images in a gentle exploration of what it means to be alive and to remember your past. He also searches through images of his own life, placing them side by side with the strangers, wondering if his memories will, one day, be just a slide sold on eBay.

Still Score is inspired by silent film accompanists in form as it places the image centre stage and allows the music and sound to wash over the audience, inviting them to enjoy the still image, making their own connections.

His past shows have received reviews such as:
‘A totally unique comedy experience’ – Time Out on Lounge Gigs
‘Although this show is small, it’s heart beats loudly – The Guardian on The Watery Journey of Nereus Pike
