KOKO, London, NW1
KOKO offers a great mixture of live bands and club nights that have put it at the heart of the Camden nightlife. The huge stage, broad balconies and plush upstairs bars are a reminder of its former role as the Camden Theatre (which originally opened its doors in 1900), and the deep red colour scheme, chandeliers and gilt molding give it a decadent air that matches the rock stars who grace the stage. It has an illustrious rock 'n' roll history, having hosted The Clash and the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, and The Eurythmics, Madness and Madonna in the 1980s. It became a much-loved scuzzy rock club in the 1990s, before being restored and reopened in 2004. In July 2010 came the addition of a huge 850 square foot roof terrace beneath the venue's iconic illuminated sign.

KOKO proudly presents Bishi’s new live work “Albion Voice”, a spectacular cross-media performance of music and light, beautiful images and effects enhance the musical drama of the album to create a sensual and exhilarating experience. In this 70 minute, one woman performance Bishi explores the myth, romance and reality of Britain ancient and modern through musical, literary and visual themes, an emotional journey that moves from anguish through acceptance to hope. Conceived and directed by new media artist Matthew Hardern (aka Glamorre) this work has charmed and excited audiences internationally. To present this sensational show KOKO have installed an extra large screen and the space will be arranged in an informal cabaret style; seated around circular tables with standing on the balconies. DJ Richard Torry will be providing a soundscape of orchestral and electronic splendour before and after, and Bishi will be signing limited edition CDs, ceramics and art prints in the bar area after the show.
