More Monkey business

Apeman and I were lucky enough to catch the BBC's fabulous 'Imagine' documentary about the new Jamie Hewlett/Damon Albarn opera, Monkey - Journey to the West, directed by Chen Shi-Zheng. Gutted to have missed the Manchester run, although chums have said that the theatre was pretty teensy with insufficient leg-room for Ape and me so we'll save it for Paris. You can watch snippets and interviewy bits at the BBC website
Messrs Hewlett and Albarn are utter geniuses and anyone who doesn't agree can jollywell sit in the corner for a while to think about what they have done.
