Turn and Face the Strange - The Story of Mick Ronson - the Spider from Hull.
Our city has always been home to rule breakers, game changers and history makers, with Hull-born rock legend Mick Ronson among the most famous of the lot.
But just how well do you know his story? In this multi-media show Hull writers and theatre makers, Garry Burnett and Rupert Creed, dig a little deeper to uncover the untold tale of how a working-class boy from Greatfield Estate challenged social norms to champion a new music and social culture.
This world premiere production tells the Mick Ronson story from his early years with bands such as The Rats, through his ground-breaking collaboration with David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars, to his innovative work as an album producer with the likes of Lou Reed and Morrissey. Through memories of friends, fans and fellow musicians, personal photographs and archive film, and the stunning music of a special live band, Turn and Face the Strange tells the story of an extraordinary talent, whose music played an influential part in countless people’s lives. With an accompanying exhibition of photographs and rare memorabilia, take a unique trip through time, image and sound, and be part of the Mick Ronson story.
