“You know when you’re ugly… You don’t always know you’re stupid.”
Described by BBC Radio 3 as “cheerfully unsettling” Alabaster Deplume (Angus Fairbairn) is a performer, writer and musician based in Manchester and London. He tours internationally bringing theatrical spoken-word to music audiences, and vice-versa.
His most recent multi-disciplinary concert/recording project, The Jester, involved 12 musicians and 24 visual artists from two cities, funded internationally by crowd-sourcing.
His work has been described as both “uneasy listening” and “harrowingly funny”.
