The Colour of Eden – Black Leather

The Colours of Eden - Black Leather

Singer Georgia Knower and guitarist Fabricio Mattos , who began working together whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London, complete their trilogy with The Colour of Eden – Black Leather: an unimaginable sequence of dissolution. Georgia and Fabricio play everything from English Baroque to Blues and Jazz standards, from upbeat South American to vibrant songs from the musicals

The trilogy presents the life stories of three imaginary women, combining breathtaking interpretations from both performers to an acute sense of style. On 11th March 2017 they will premiere the final programme of the trilogy, ‘Black Leather’, at the Thames Tunnel Shaft.

She is a woman stained by loss. Life presents itself to her as an unimaginable sequence of dissolution, first her social stability, her children, her love and finally herself.

This is the moving story of a woman who loses everything: her love, her children, her social stability and finally herself.

Is it possible to recover from a point where self-recognition becomes a challenge?

The Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum

This atmospheric, underground tunnel shaft is a totally unique experience

Part of the fascinating Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe, this place is like an extraordinary underground cathedral. The performance area is an incredible cylindrical shaft built by Brunel as pedestrian entrance to the Thames Tunnel. This is a unique and atmospheric show. New improved access by ramp and full height doorway gives to a staircase down to the lower chamber. A viewing platform high inside the shaft offers balcony seating for a limited number of people: priority given to those with impaired mobility or using a wheelchair. S

Facilities at this venue include:

  • Toilets in the main museum
  • Museum
  • Café  and Art Galley open every day
  • Midnight Apothecary pop up bar (weekends only)

Please note that the temperature in the tunnel shaft may be cool, so bring some warm clothes. If you have a problem with stairs please let the company know and they can book you seats in the high level viewing platform.
