As part of REVOLUTION17
A theatrical adventure through the streets and back-alleys of Shoreditch
Written by Michael Wagg
Directed by Sophie Austin
30th October to 18th November 2017
A young man, Twistov, has gone missing in London. Inspired by Charles Dickens'
OLIVER TWIST and the experience of migrant communities currently living in UK
cities, TWISTOV explores identity and home and who we become if both are taken
away from us.
After exploring the Arms Trade in London squares, staging Shakespeare in
supermarkets, MOTHER COURAGE in an old weapons factory and THE ODYSSEY on the
streets, tattoo parlours and pubs of Deptford, the acclaimed TEATRO VIVO are
staging their own brand of “theatre where you least expect it” around the
streets of Shoreditch as part of DASH ARTS REVOLUTION17 series.
TWISTOV will start at RICH MIX and be staged in Shoreditch, the heart of
Dickens’ East End, where faint traces of the past remain visible. During the
performance, TWISTOV will take the audience on a journey that asks us to see
beyond the new buildings and trendy shops, to look down side streets and in
doorways and meet another London. Here we will face our own sense of home and
identity: what would we do and where would we run, if these were our stories?
After attending a talk by a disgraced lecturer, the audience will be taken in
small groups on a man-hunt, a bird-watch, and a game of cat-and-mouse in search
of the elusive Twistov. As they journey, the audience will experience stories
from the hidden lives of east London’s migrant population.
Real life testimony has been woven with Dickens’ OLIVER TWIST to guide you
through the capital’s underbelly to places you won’t have seen before: discover
hidden bars and dark secrets, tales of life’s absurdity and the realities and
struggles faced by those who seek sanctuary on our shores.

'WHEN LOVE IS GONE'
RELEASED 10th NOVEMBER 2017
Stage Door Records are pleased to announce the release of West End performer
Meredith Braun’s new solo album ‘When Love Is Gone’ on November 10th, 2017
(available on CD / Download / Streaming).
Five years following the release of Meredith Braun's critically acclaimed debut
album 'Someone Else's Story', Meredith returns with her new solo album, 'When
Love Is Gone'. The title for the release comes from the Paul Williams song
Meredith performed in the iconic film 'The Muppet Christmas Carol', which
celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Meredith's new 2017 recording of
'When Love Is Gone' marks the first time she has performed the song since
recording the original version for the 1992 film soundtrack.
'When Love Is Gone' takes the form of a narrative song cycle, based around both
specially selected material and original songs. The material featured ranges
from musical theatre to singer-songwriter ballads, brought together by
Meredith's own self-penned and elegantly crafted musical arrangements. Written
and recorded between November 2016 and July 2017, the album highlights Braun's
musicality, not just as a performer but also as a musician and writer as she
embraces a wide range of musical styles and genres across the recording.
Meredith is accompanied on the cello by her son, 13 year-old Tiger Braun-White,
a student at the Royal Academy of Music and holder of both the Leverhulme and
ABRSM scholarships. Speaking about the new album, Meredith commented:
"Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes
you feel a thought." - Yip Harburg.
"When Love Is Gone" encompasses all the elements of music theatre that I love.
15 years ago I performed a one-woman play with songs at the National Theatre
Studio - 'Cordelia'. It was written for me by the award-winning playwright and
lyricist Stephen Clark. I have taken this concept of a narrative song cycle into
"When Love Is Gone". Primarily, it is the story of an 'Everywoman' who is living
through a painful and difficult relationship. The narrative is driven by both
the excerpts and the lyric but the music and the arrangements expand and
heighten the experience and, I hope, elucidate the issues."
Songs featured include a heart-rending interpretation of Stephen Sondheim's
'With So Little To Be Sure Of', a rare and unique cover of Andrew Lloyd Webber's
'There's Me' (from the original production of 'Starlight Express', arr. James
McConnel) Barry Manilow's evocatively tragic composition 'Sandra' and the
premiere studio recording of Agnetha Fältskog's powerful and passionate solo
ABBA song 'I'm Still Alive'. New material is represented by two compositions
written by Meredith ('Hold Me' and 'Everything That's Me') and 'The Rules', a
hauntingly dramatic original song written especially for the album by musical
theatre writers Stephen Keeling and Shaun McKenna.
The release of 'When Love Is Gone' begins a new chapter in Meredith Braun's
performing career. As a leading West End performer since 1990, Meredith's
illustrious theatre credits include originating such roles as 'Betty Schaeffer'
in 'Sunset Boulevard', 'Lily' in the RSC's 'The Secret Garden' and playing both
'Eponine' in 'Les Misérables' and 'Christine' in 'The Phantom of the Opera'.
