In the Cream Room



Silk Road Arts



We live in an age when unprecedented contact between peoples seems to throw up more borders and suspicion



The legendary Silk Road is an example of age-long exchanges between peoples Jew, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist from Moorish Spain to Arab peninsula, across Central Asia to China. In their trade they left traces in each other's dance, song, poetry, beliefs.



SILK ROAD ARTS is an initiative to foster greater harmony by offering events, workshops, and artists inspired by the Silk Road.

One of the areas of our mission is to re-introduce Muslim and non-Muslim to a spiritually tolerant expression of Islam and wider view of its arts.



Showcasing brilliant, indigenously trained artists and groups, SILK ROAD ARTS brings an ancient power to move and illuminate our rootless three-minute culture.



We are pleased to host the room with Kazum! Organizers of OrientExpress live music and club nights with a focus on Turkish and Balkan music.



Featuring:



Hurriyya (Live & Workshop)

23:00-00:00

Hurriyya (freedom') is a dabka' dance troupe performing Palestinian and Middle-eastern community dances. After a shortened performance Alia Alzougbi will lead a workshop ideally suited to the Synergy gathering. The dabka' dance is a line step-dance often danced at weddings by men and women, young and old alike, from the Arab world to Turkey and Greece, generating great community togetherness. No experience necessary!



Michael Ormiston (Live)

A performance of Mongolian music using throat singing, morin khuur (horse head fiddle), and Tobshuur (plucked lute). Michael Ormiston specializes in Mongolian Khmii (overtone) singing, being one of the few Westerners to study with masters in Mongolia and given permission to sing Khmii.

Talks/Presentations



A series of presentations hosted by Jeff (GoodJeff) Laster will be held in the Small World area (deep blue room) from 10:00 to 12:30



'40th Anniversary Summer of Love'



In Honour of the 40th Anniversary Year of the World Changing 'Summer of Love' as well as the San Fransisco 'Human Be-In', Synergy Presents:





Night of the Counterculture, Past, Present, and Future'



The Past:

Sue Hall has been involved in the English Counterculture since the sixties. She will present a series of historical photos from the Sixties Counterculture and talk about the influences that led up to it. Sue will tell us what it was like to be at the legendary Alternative Sixties club UFO as well as the legendary sixties 'happening', the 14 hour Technicolour Dream She will then be happy to take questions from the audience. Sue recently gave a well-received talk on LSD in Basel at the 100th birthday of LSD inventor Albert Hoffmann.



Lee Harris , familiar to many as the owner of Britain's legendary 'headshop' on Portobello Road, Alchemy , described himself as a 'footsoldier of the underground'. He will share his vast knowledge of the Sixties Counterculture with us by recounting in his inimitable fashion various scenes and tales from that time. LEE, now an 'Angel Headed hip hop artist' is still very active in the Counterculture and in Jimmy Hendrix's words is 'keeping the freak flag flying high'.



Greg Sams is acknowledged as a true 'Icon' of the Counterculture. He has been described as the most interesting person in London. Author of 'UnCommon Sense: The State is Out of Date' and more recently 'Perhaps-Stuff is Smarter than we Think', Greg also founded Ceres Macrobiotic Food Shop, Harmony(Whole Earth) Foods, SEED Macrobiotic Restaurant, Strange Attraction, (a shop dedicated to Chaos Theory), invented the Vegeburger, has been a prominent Street Reclaiming activist, is a dedicated raver and is simply a great inspiration to people of all ages in the Counterculture.



The Present:

The Rainbow Family the biggest community of Alternative people in the world (anyone can join) and the amazing Rainbow Gatherings have gathered people from the Counter culture together since 1972. Su and several other Family members will recount the history of the Gatherings and talk about the philosophy behind them, taking questions from the audience as well.



The Future:

Megatripolis @ Forever: first chapter in a series of sci-fi club radio plays by the legendary Counterculture impresario, Fraser Clark. inventor of Megatripolis (at Heaven) and The Warp Experience (SE1). Enter here (at your own risk) for the great time travel experiment. Starring: Kate Alderton, Funmi Olowe, Leigh Kelly, Mitch Davies,Luci Boccino, Camden Macdonald. Directed by Camden Macdonald.



Host: Jeff (GoodJeff) Laster has been an Alternative Culture activist from the Sixties to the present, both in both in America and Britain. He specialises in creating talks and debates on issues of interest to the Counterculture and Rave Generation. His passion for the Neil Oram's 23 hour theatrical CounterCulture opus The Warp led him to bring it to bring it to Fraser Clark's club The Warp Experience (SE1) in 1999.

Downside (only slight) is that I will arrive in London at about 2300 (meaning 0200 tongue)and will either have to have someone *hint hint* pick me up from Euston so I can leave stuff in their car, or pay extra for my luggage and/or endure a lengthy bag search! All worth it I guess!

I'm going down on the oxford tube, if Irinus&TinyPixie are cool with it a little early see them, drop a sleeping bag off as I'm staying there, and back the same way.



I learned coming back from Ed. that megabuss uses the oxford tubes, so if you're happy booking in advance and catching them at the exact time you can do that section of your journey for 1 on a comfy buss.



Not quite sure when I'm tavelling yet, but if it's convenient for you company would be very welcome smile



route there is very easy from the tube, marble arch to bond st, bond st to london bridge.



I had to leave at 5am last time to go straight to a course, not for this one! biggrin
