‘Breaking Glass’ ‘Film + Performance’
Tuesday 20th November 2018 19.00pm
A very special evening with award-winning singer songwriter Hazel O’Connor, featuring a rare screening of the digitally re-mastered uncut version of the film followed by an intimate Q&A and live performance of some of the film’s best loved songs.
Striding into the spotlight and catapulted into fame in 1980 in the iconic movie Breaking Glass, Hazel not only made the lead role her own, but also wrote all the songs. The soundtrack album Breaking Glass went on to go double platinum during its 38 week chart run, defining Hazel O’Connor as a powerful passionate performer and a force to be reckoned with. Joined here onstage by Clare Hirst (Bellestars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax, Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards and Josh Blackmore (Troyka/Strobes ) on percussion, the superb blend of the three voices and stunning musicianship add a sweet touch of class to their vibrant performance.
