Ben Moore

PRONOUN TROUBLE:

There will be interesting words, silly pictures and references to Wayne's World, Epicurus, and Daffy Duck.

Miscellaneous subjects that crossed my mind while listening to a lecture about Chuck Jones’s Hunting Trilogy (1951-53)

Ben is sitting in a lecture about a series of Chuck Jones cartoons, but his thoughts drift off in various directions.

There's his friendship with the person he came with, the T-shirts he has at home, his favourite words, his favourite books, and the schism on London’s high streets between the conflicting denominations of launderettes and laundrettes.

And all the while, the lecturer is following her own sweet way, exploring new meanings in the films, quoting obscure academics and offering a different way of looking at the world.

Are any of us following the script?

Aren’t we all in some kind of pronoun trouble?

Using Powerpoint and stand-up, Pronoun Trouble combines a fact-adjacent lecture about three extraordinary cartoons and a whole ton of other topics that sometimes come to mind

Ben Moor has been producing solo comedy pieces since 1993. In April 2016 he brought to Trouble At Mill his show 'Each of Us', described by The Guardian as "A moving satire on the arbitrariness of the everyday, rivaling the best of Douglas Adams in its witty conjugation of cultural norms and ephemera."

Astraluna

Astraluna’s songs range from epic, ethereal soundscapes to stripped down emotions. Performing solo, her haunting and pure vocals compliment her warm ukulele sound: at times it is delicately harp-like and at others, part of a heavy looped backing with layered vocals, drum samples and synth pedals.
