Afro Celt Sound System formed more than 20 years ago when Simon Emmerson brought a group of musicians from the UK and Africa to Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios. Since then, they have released a "trail-blazing" (PopMatters) fusion of African and Celtic music, bringing together "an irresistible blend of rhythms and lilting spirituality aimed equally at the head, heart and feet" (BBC Music). They perform following the release of their latest album, The Source. "I can guarantee it's a unique and unmissable spectacle," says Folk Radio of their live shows.

A smoke-and-whisky voice that has been compared to Billie Holliday.
Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue. (Hamlet, Act III Scene II) When you set out on the role of a lifetime, where do you begin? What does it feel like to inherit a part that has such famous and vivid ancestry? How do you make it your own? Andrew Scott joins Almeida Associate Director Robert Icke to discuss playing Hamlet in our 2017 production.
When award-winning performer and lip synch maestro Dickie Beau realised he might never play The Dane, he decided instead to turn himself into a human Hamlet mix-tape. He would channel audio recordings of great historical performances of theatre's most famous role, to "re-member" the ghosts of Hamlet from the past. Haunting the set of Robert Icke's 'Hamlet', this solo satellite show is the story of Dickie's failed quest to become the Uber-Hamlet ... and why he got distracted on the way. Part documentary theatre, part twenty first century s?ance, 'Re-Member Me' is a personal adventure in cultural archaeology and a very contemporary ghost story. It is an ode to the impermanence of personhood, procrastination, and the presence of absence on the haunted stage.
