Legendary arts organisation takes final bow

Besi Besemar May 15, 2019

Internationally renowned Zap Arts closed on March 29, 2019 after thirty extraordinary years creating critically acclaimed art projects throughout the UK and Europe.

FOR one night only, there is an opportunity to witness the last ever Zap Cabaret. An evening to mark the end of an era with a celebration of innovators and risk takers across all art forms. A joyful synergy between the leading edge of art and entertainment in a trajectory that takes us from 1982 far into the 21st Century and beyond.

Zap Club founder, Neil Butler, has invited artists and performers, who worked with the Zap in its several manifestations as the Zap Club, Zap Productions, UZ Arts and Zap Art, to perform for the Zap one last time – the response was overwhelming.

115 people offered to help and 20+ to perform. “For one night at the Old Market Theatre, you will see a programme that includes performers from the earliest Zap Club days to Zap Arts most recent events. The inspiration from our past but also our hopes for the future,” said Neil Butler.

Zap Art Artistic Director, Dave Reeves added: “It has been amazing to work from Brighton, across the UK and Europe with such a range of talented artists, performers and organisers from every field of the arts.”

Artists will be travelling from across the UK, Ireland, Spain and Sri Lanka to take part in the Final Programme,
include; Liz Aggiss, Jon B, Roy Bayfield, Neil Butler, Marisa Carnesky, Marion Deprez, Angie Dight, Ginny Farman, Flick Ferdinando, Marianna Harlotta, Chris Lynam, Bear North, Mike Majendi, Nick Nose, Feilim O’hAolain, Chris Orr, Anne Pigalle, Paul Roundhill, Bill Smith, Miss Skavoovie, Stella Starr, Stompy, Ken Turner and Duncan Whiteman
