Event Details

Dr. Ian Chapman and The Cosmic Trio present David Bowie and The Art of Being Different.
In the sparkling interactive musical performance and accompanying talk, Dr. Ian Chapman (vocals, percussion) and his band Doug Wright (keys, vocals) and Pania Simmonds (bass, vocals) delight in entertaining and educating on the empowerment and healing potential of music and the Arts. 
Personally inspired by David Bowie, Dr. Chapman is a musician, academic and author of a dozen books including ‘Experiencing David Bowie: A Listeners Companion’ (2015) and ‘David Bowie FAQ’ (2020).
Cosmic Jive Trio perform superb acoustic arrangements of David Bowie’s finest songs, arranged especially for the show. The honest simplicity of the arrangements allow Bowie’s masterful songwriting take centre stage.
David Bowie and The Art of Being Different is a wonderfully entertaining celebration of eccentric creativity, a testament of how the Arts can empower, improve mental health, heal past traumas and provide an essential blueprint for how to deal with bullying. Above all, this show is a triumphant affirmation of the power and potential of difference.
