Event details:

As part of the Oxford International Women’s Festival 2012 Irish vocalist Anne L Ryan will present Jibb Rishes Songologue, a vocal clown at the Old Fire Station, George Street, Oxford on Friday 9 March, 8pm.

A vocal clown brings to life glimpses of her past on and off the stage, through songs and vignettes set against an evocative soundscape. The character of Jibb Rish is from a by-gone world that she recreates for us with a modern twist, creating a whirl-wind songologue that is quizzical, funny and moving. She portrays her past using ethnic song (Irish, Spanish, Yiddish, Georgian), Anglo-Irish verse with Cage, Beckett and Kagel participating in the dramatic back-drop. Jibb Rish has many voices that come to life through sounding, vocalising, original composition and songs. Jibb Rishes Songologue received its premiere at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas in October 2010. It is a constantly evolving vocal music theatre song cycle; a series of independent scenarios revealing glimpses of Jibb Rishes vocal clown story.
