    In this sparkling interactive performance and accompanying chat, Dr Ian Chapman unravels the extraordinary marriage of sound and visual effect that lies at the heart of the work of David Bowie, one of the most complex, enduring, and empowering performers in the history of popular music.

    Dr Chapman, musician, academic, and author of Experiencing David Bowie: A Listener's Guide (2015), and David Bowie FAQ (2020), both published by Rowman & Littlefield, US, and his Cosmic Jive Trio bring to the stage superb acoustic arrangements of David Bowie's finest songs, arranged
    especially for this show.

    The honest simplicity of the stripped back and largely acoustic instrumentation allows Bowie's masterful song-writing to take centre stage. David Bowie & the Art of Being Different is a wonderfully entertaining celebration of eccentric creativity, a testament to how the arts can improve mental health and provide empowerment, a blueprint for how to deal with bullying, and a triumphant affirmation of the power of difference.
