Thursday, May 23rd Praxis Makes Perfect appears in Bristol’s Motion as part of Mayfest. All London shows are sold out – so as of writing it’s the last chance to see the full National Theatre Wales / Neon Neon production of the album in it’s full surround sound glory. It will also be performed at festival no 6 and Latitude this summer in it’s stereo version. Tickets available here: http://mayfestbristol.co.uk/event_2013/praxis-makes-perfect/
Neon Neon (Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip) present ‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ – a conceptual power pop tour de force inspired by the colourful life of maverick Italian publisher Giagiacomo Feltrinelli.
Born in to one of Italy’s wealthiest families, Feltrinelli was a left-wing political activist and published some of the greatest literary works of the 20th century, including ‘The Leopard’ and ‘Doctor Zhivago’. He died in highly suspicious circumstances in 1972.
‘Praxis Makes Perfect’ features Sabrina Salerno, Asia Argento, Cate Le Bon, Josh Klinghoffer and follows Neon Neon’s 2008, Mercury-shortlisted debut ‘Stainless Style’; a concept album based on the life of colourful motoring mogul John DeLorean.
Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip have also teamed up with playwright Tim Price, director Wils Wilson and National Theatre Wales to create unique Neon Neon live performances.
