The Clerks: Tales from Babel

Wed 23 Oct 2013 , 7:30 pm

| £10

Having trouble holding a conversation at a party? Can’t manage to concentrate when surrounded by lots of other people talking? Distracted by other threads of conversations?

Most of us would have to say ‘yes’ to all of these; it’s called ‘the cocktail party problem’; and The Clerks’ new, richly entertaining programme explores the problem through music from the 14th to the 21st centuries. Voices from the Middle Ages and modern world jostle for attention, as the Clerks attempt to throw new light on a mystery which has kept scientists busy for decades.
