Last night's entertainment (14/3/2013) at the Rose Theatre Café held the same kind of compartmentalised joy as a trip to the Pitt Rivers Museum. The exotic collector, with suitable wild beard and explorers hat was Tim Fulker. He is an impressive musician in his own right but had converted from poacher to gamekeeper to present a new experience called Mosiac with chums at Our Friends Records.
Mosaic is a project that fuses music, dance, poetry and comedy. Even though it is set in the Rose Theatre's Café, this isn't a hastily constructed affair, with a couple of bar stools and a guitar. No, the sound is expertly produced and the space creatively fluid for all the different genres at play.

|Jon Stone - Poetry|
Jon Stone gave us several poems from a variety of publications. His work was evocative and beautiful and he stood like the birds he is inspired by. An absolute pleasure to draw, he held still like a hunting heron and spoke with clarity, his cheek bones an artist's delight.
As this was my first time and I was completely alone I sketched a young man in my eye-line who carefully corralled 3 bottled of Becks into his arms. I introduced myself and he (Sean Westwood) explained what had attracted him to Mosaic's showcase.
"I'm always stuck to my seat because of the variety of genres but never too comfortable as the performers all have a streak of unpredictability about them."
You can judge for yourself when you come and see it.
