About The Event
Action Hero explore songs used for torture, karaoke and the Boston Red Sox aeroplane
In August 2012, James Stenhouse sang David Gray’s Babylon to a room of Americans in a karaoke bar in San Francisco.
During IBT 13, Action Hero begin a new project called Extraordinary Rendition. Inspired by songs used to torture ‘enemy combatants’, karaoke and a plane belonging to the owner of the Boston Red Sox, they will spend the festival in a shipping container exploring these ideas, singing more songs and welcoming curious audience members (and experienced karaoke singers) into their process.
“See why this maverick company, with its engaging DIY aesthetic, is attracting so much attention” The Guardian
