Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in Russia
The Irrepressibles

The Irrepressibles
MOSCOW  •  Gorky Park  •  Ongoing

UK chamber pop ensemble The Irrepressibles make a bold move to perform a free concert in Gorky Park in Moscow on 21 May. The 10-piece ‘performance orchestra’, along with its openly gay visionary leader and composer Jaime McDermott, continue to confront controversial human rights issues that plague Russia and many other countries around the performance at a time. This bold move will bring light to Russia’s evolving political stage, especially dealing with the country’s attitude towards homosexuality.

Using conceptual sets, and teams of artists in film, dance, avant-garde costume and make-up, the collective creates live spectacles around their songs.

The Irrepressibles are:

- Jamie McDermott - Composer / Voice / Guitar
- Sarah Kershaw - Piano
- Jordan Hunt - Violin
- Charlie Stock - Viola
- Nicole Robson - Cello
- Sophie Li - Double Bass
- Rosie Reed - Flute
- Craig White - Oboe / Cor Anglais
- Anna Westlake - Clarinet / Saxophone
- William Turner-Duffin - Sound Design / Electronics
