We may not always love them when we’re on the receiving end of a parking ticket.
But Paul McCartney turned an encounter with a ‘meter maid’ close to London’s Abbey Road Studios into an exuberant and jaunty love letter, which now forms the basis of this ambitious street performance project from international performer Meow Meow.
Known for pushing boundaries, Meow Meow will work with her Sleepless Beauties – acclaimed musician, composer and producer Jherek Bischoff, sound designer Jethro Woodward, and award-winning costume designer Andrea Lauer, to produce a unique procession down iconic Hope Street of brass bands and parking attendants.
A thought-provoking installation in The Oratory will culminate in Rita’s ‘awakening’ and her requiem in St James Gardens at dusk.
This will undoubtedly be a first for Hope Street, the city, for traffic wardens and the world!
