Dr Ian Chapman & the Cosmic Jive Trio
Present David Bowie & the Art of Being Different

In this sparkling interactive musical performance and accompanying talk, Dr Ian Chapman and his band delight in entertaining and educating audiences on the empowerment and healing potential of music and the arts. Personally inspired by David Bowie, one of the most complex and enduring performers in the history of popular music, Dr Chapman is a musician, academic, and author of a dozen books including Experiencing David Bowie: A Listener’s Companion (2015), and David Bowie FAQ (2020).

Cosmic Jive Trio brings to the stage superb acoustic arrangements of David Bowie’s finest songs, arranged especially for the show. The honest simplicity of the stripped back and largely acoustic instrumentation allows Bowie’s masterful song-writing to take centre stage.

David Bowie & the Art of Being Different is a wonderfully entertaining celebration of eccentric creativity, a testament to how the arts can empower, improve mental health, heal past traumas, and provide an essential blueprint for how to deal with bullying. Above all, this show is a triumphant affirmation of the power and potential of difference.
