Wrestlers & Shakespeare

Well, that sums it up really! So let's get down to the dirt...

Last week the Künst were privileged to be part of a photo shoot by the fantastic Tom Hunter for the Royal Shakespeare Company. A modern take on the classic A Midsummer Night's Dream, the shoot involved pearly kings and queens, carnival dancers and yours truly! We portray The Mechanicals, with the gorgeous (as always) Ms. DeVille featured as Bottom. The cast and crew were all fabulous and we had loads of fun shooting at the Mildmay Club in Stoke Newington. We can't wait to see the finished photos! In the meantime, here's a sneak peak of us on set.

The weekend sawing us hit up Resistance Gallery in Bethnal Green for the Lucha Britannia show. Latex-clad guys and dolls, Mexican wrestling masks, spandex, comedy, cabaret, burlesque...they've got it all! Good times.

So, onto this week and we've been rehearsing for our impending recording session. Looking forward to working with the fabulous Felix at Tigersonic Studio. She also runs the Smart Women's Recording Club, giving free recording studio workshops for female singers and musicians - yes, that's right, free! Girls, don't pass up a good opportunity to gain some knowledge about the studio (she does also sometimes run mixed group workshops as well, so don't feel left out, boys).

We'll report back soon on how it all goes and have hopefully have some tracks up too!
