Café Curio: The Ship of Crips

Simon Raven

12 September 2012

Wednesday 12 September, 7.00 - 8.00pm

The Ship of Crips will be an offsite performance and video taking as it’s starting point the Renaissance pratice of rounding up the mentally ill to set adrift in boats. The book Ship of Fools, 1494 by Sebastian Brant and illustrated by Durer, is a classic literary satire which had images of castaways at its core. Inspired by this, and the Sex Pistols boat party for the Diamond Jubilee Floatilla, which was  timed for the release of God Save the Queen, the Ship of Crips will be a collaborative work, staged and filmed aboard a boat on the Regents Canal in Camden.
