Copperdollar 2016


copper

Copperdollar once more rises from the grave with their three year-running sell-out show, The Back of Beyond. Gather with the ghostly Carny folk for a celebration of the dead in a kaleidoscopic whirl of art, music and performance.

Immerse yourself in this hypnotic world of the afterlife and let the skellies draw you into the entangled branches of their mischief and mayhem. DJs Marc Stylus and Ro Robinson from Son Camillion will lead you to the far side of reality and keep you dancing until your very last breath.

Dress up, relax in a coffin and lose your way in the garden of souls. This is a place you’ll never forget; where the future is past and yesterday will never dawn…

The main theatrical event runs from 11pm till 4am daily.

BEYOND THE BACK OF MY MIND
“This is a very old and ancient sage.”
A lady dressed up as some sort of red and white skull faced Captain Hook’s bit on the side is holding sage under my nose
“Here! Here! Look this one is a Mexican Marigold.”
Alan Titchmarsh would love this lady
In ‘The Back of Beyond’ I believe what people tell me
I believe what people show me
A screen censored dancer moves perfectly in time with her silhouette
An indoor tree stands seasoned with people’s paper wishes
There is a coffin that is not for death
People who are very alive are lying in it
A coffin must feel spoilt when it has more than one person use it
One of the death crew paints faces from a palette of magpie colours
Publishing on skin what will come to us after life
These people come for the people
The people come for these people
One youthful rucksacked youth says “I might go home”
And then laughs hysterically
