Just sometimes, you have an art experience that feels important. Some thing that feels like it could change the world, or at least the bit of the world that surrounds you.
That was Pressure Drop, with Billy Bragg, band and actors at the Wellcome Collection last Saturday night. Part gig, part play, part art installation, spinning out of the ‘Identity’ exhibition that the Wellcome Collection put on recently (is that exhibition going to tour? It should). There was anger, humour, soul-searching and deep questions – and a joyfulness of rediscovering old songs. Most importantly, we left feeling that the world could change – for the better – and we could be involved in that … if we took the trouble.
It’s on till 9th May. Go!
