On Friday 24 March, we’re excited to welcome three talented creatives to FUSEBOX to showcase their work: Zuzanna Wężyk, Chidera Ikechukwu and Xander.
Our Creative Sparks nights give emerging artists and companies the opportunities to showcase short pieces of work that are in development (and between 10-15 minutes long). The work can be from a range of genres including theatre, comedy, physical theatre, poetry and more.
Creative Sparks nights also provide opportunities to share ideas and request feedback from audience.
Book tickets for the event in advance or buy on the door.
About the artists
Guitarist, vocalist and composer, originally from beautiful city Gdańsk, where she started her musical path. She obtained Bachelor’s degree at the University Mozarteum Salzburg where she was improving her classical guitar skills. Also, Zuzanna has studied Composing for Film and TV at Kingston University London. At Creative Sparks Zuzanna will perform the newest songs which has been released on streaming platforms with Acid Grass Records, few songs from her EP 2020 and unreleased tracks too.
Chidera Ikechukwu will be performing a spoken word poem about her relationship with being black and British and how those both coincide and collide.
Xander finds himself influenced from many different musical angles which relay to the performance style and sound that he delivers. Growing up just outside of London, in a home which loved music, Xander was exposed to a multitude of artists from a young age, ranging from the smooth soul sounds of Sade to the psychedelic guitar solos of Pink Floyd, to hard-hitting Nu-Metal of Linkin Park down to the pop melodies of Coldplay and The Script. All these different musical influences combined with Xander’s ever-wondering sense of purpose lead to a familiar pop sound with some progressive intrigue.
The majority of Xander’s music aims at people’s hearts instead of their feet, tackling relatable subjects from heartbreak to chasing your dreams. These relatable subjects have always been something Xander has been drawn to as he believes music is one of the best ways to counter isolation as it can let you know you’re not the only person out there feeling the way that you do.
