About The Event
Join us for a special night of Unscripted: The Music Series featuring a new live show called Meetings by local musician and writer Misha Bower. A blend of music and storytelling, Meetings is set in a shifting support group context where Misha plays a series of characters confiding to their peers—the audience. For each character, she performs a monologue and song that crystalize a unique moment of personal disclosure. The song portion of the show features accompaniment by Pete Hurst, a local sound technician who has put himself on the other side of the mixing desk to revisit his musical roots as an accompanying guitarist.
Audiences should know that Meetings highlights human journeys threaded with addiction, trauma and loss. It has a dynamic emotional tone that is automatically tender, but searches equally for vulnerability and the unexpected comedy so central to the art of coping.
The Unscripted conversation will be hosted by Josh Lambier, Artistic Director of Words Festival, Director of the Public Humanities at Western, and collaborative pillar in the London arts community. Unscripted is an opportunity for lovers of music, storytelling and theatre to experience a multi-arts performance and discuss creation and collaboration across artforms.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Misha Bower is a writer and musician based in London. Her work, literary and musical, is character-driven and often focused on the idiosyncratic ways people cope with and internalize life experience. Her current project Meetings is a live show set in a support group context, in which Misha portrays different characters in unique moments of personal disclosure with original monologues and songs.

Pete Hurst works primarily as a live sound technician. When the occasion arises however, he will put himself on the other side of the mixing desk, and not just to prove to any skeptical musicians that he can follow the dictum, "Never ask someone to do something you wouldn't do yourself." Pete's first introduction to the industry was as an accompanying guitarist, and he is happy to revisit those roots to support Misha Bower on stage.
