Ladies and gentlemen and everybody else! ANATOMY is pleased to unveil the line-up for our annual Crimboweenstravaganza, and to announce that it will be The Final Anatomy…

…of Book One. Ali and Harry are taking a programming break to regroup, reimagine, and reacquire filthy lucre so as to be able to reopen a Book Two of Anatomy with more acts, more joy, more terror, and more funding for the artists and producers involved.  More news on this soon, but for now we are proud to present, unwrap, find the batteries for and unleash into an unsuspecting world:

The Frost Kid Gang!

Featuring noise, laughter, bondage, stupid noses, bugs, frost, desolation, dance, and a little crimboween joy!

Featuring Rebecca Green, Melanie Jordan and Emma Anderson, Skinnyreadhead, S.W.A.S., Lewis Sherlock, Lou Lou Voltaire, and a very special surprise guest!

Featuring snowflakes, stardust and slime from your stupefied hosts, Ali Maloney and Harry Giles!

You sound shite. Like, full of shite. Remove me from this shitstream.

“She sees her across a crowded beach. Something new. Something funny. Something delightful. She sees her too. Whatever forces them to be apart springs them back together. Laws of emotional gravity. Reactivity. Relational reactivity. ”

“Once you accept that we are- in fact- ruled by insects, it should become apparent that we have both a King and a Queen enthroned. Unfortunately, to their disagreement (although we all have our theories on who wears the trousers) they both have to present the annual grandiose ceremony where they feign concern for the state of things.”
