Chris Goode's _The History of Airports: Selected texts for performance 1995-2009_ will be launched at a special event this Sunday, November 29th, at Stoke Newington International Airport. The event will feature readings from the book by collaborators past and present (and, hopefully, future); followed by a screening of Johan Grimonprez's extraordinary documentary _dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y_, which continues the airport theme by attempting a sort of political history of the second half of the twentieth century through its international airjacking incidents.
The readers / performers for the event will be: Harry Gilonis, Chris Goode, Sebastien Lawson, Jonny Liron, Tom Lyall, Finlay Robertson, Theron U. Schmidt, Rajni Shah, Davina Silver and Jamie Wood.
The reading starts at 8pm (doors 7.30) and costs just £5. (LEAN UPSTREAM season ticket holders are very cordially reminded that this event is not covered by their season tickets. Sorry.) Free wine, up to a point; once that runs out, BYOB.
