Nomad and Qu Junktions present 'A Ritual for Elephant & Castle' featuring Marcus Coates performing live with Chrome Hoof plus a separate performance by Wildbirds and Peacedrums and a 20-piece live drum circle, plus special guests and DJs.

A one-off event that deploys specially conceived music (via riveting bands playing in extended formats), artistic practises, shamanistic ritual and visuals to raise the roof. Theatrical, cinematic, spectacular and climaticThe Ritual for Elephant & Castle will harness the cathartic emotions and crazed notions that make for a live music show and channel them to make a socially and culturally powerful piece of merrymaking.

The highly anticipated collusion of artist / shape shifter Marcus Coates and the thunder, rock and disco of the mighty Chrome Hoof is a fanciful and fantastic proposition. Add to this cauldron the raw sexual energy of Wildbirds and Peacedrums, backed up by a 20 piece drum circle and it is an explosive evening of infinite possibilities and happenings. The subversive visual prowess of Rod Maclachlan will light the way.

A Ritual for Elephant & Castle is a multi-dimensional live musical performance ritual inspired by the current changes taking place in the London neighbourhood of Elephant & Castle. The ritual will be performed in the historic Coronet Theatre, a key venue for an area currently undergoing extensive social and architectural transformation.

This is the main event in an ongoing residency Nomad, Coates and Chrome Hoof have established in Elephant & Castle over the last 9 months. This ritual for Elephant & Castle is both music event, exorcism and rite of passage, with culture catching multi-media screenings, real life dream state, performance ceremony and one hell of a rock'n'roll disco show.
