Friday, 24th November 2006
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1 London UK
After an exciting and vibrant opening to the season, the dynamic Synergy collective gathers once more, bringing together many inspired souls of today, to celebrate a better world for tomorrow.
Synergy is a magical indoor festival, combining musicians, DJs, VJs, performers, and artists from all corners of creativity, joined by various pro-active NGOs and charities.
It is our sincere intention to harness the power of positive celebration and to discuss the many issues affecting our global community. Gently raising awareness of some of the most pressing issues around the world, supporting the work of our collaborating NGOs & Charities, and exposing them alongside other individual campaigns that deserve more attention, to the vibrant, cross-generational and multi-cultural scene which makes up the Synergy crowd.
This new event will feature an incredibly varied mix of different elements:
This innovative and dynamic collective of visual artists presents their first major project in the shape of a captivating social and political audio/visual performance, combining the work of ten different artists, focusing on the joint elements of sound, light, and performance production guiding the viewer on a breathtaking journey through the northern regions of India. Driving over the highest road in the world in a brave attempt to show the dramatic conditions Tibetan Refugees go through everyday to escape Chinese oppression within their native Tibet.
All filmed by the team in HD (high definition) video technology, and combining in-house audio producers alongside some of the freshest sounds to come out of some of the UK’s top studios.
The live performance will take place in the main room at 11:00 and is one hour long.

1)ANDY LETCHER, ‘SHROOM author talking about MAGIC MUSHROOM scene and current state of psychedelic scene in general
Writer, lecturer and musician Dr Andy Letcher will give an illustrated talk about his new book, ‘Shroom: A Cultural History of the Magic Mushroom’. The magic mushroom was only rediscovered in the West fifty years ago, but has accumulated all sorts of folktales and urban legends along the way. In the book Andy strips away the myths to get at the true story of how hallucinogenic mushrooms, once shunned in the West as the most pernicious of poisons, came to be the illicit drug of choice. Chronicling the history of the magic mushroom from its use by the Aztecs of Central America and the tribes of Siberia through to the present day, he takes a critical and humorous look at the drug’s more recent manifestations. The talk will end with a more open discussion about the pros and cons of contemporary mushroom use.
2) PREM HOBDEN and RAW POWER
Prem Hobden is a very gifted gourmet raw food chef who has been sharing his passion for gourmet health food across the world through his classes and retreats. Since the age of fifteen he has been researching and experimenting in the field of peak health after curing himself of an apparently irreversible juvenile arthritis from a diet of mainly raw organic food and juices. Since going to Australia he has further developed his skill and passion for creating unbelievably healthy dishes that are unbelievably good! and now he is in the UK! He will try and give you a taste of his raw food classes where you can learn how to:
– Create a huge variety of sumptuous meals with minimal preparation and without ever turning on an oven.
– Become vibrantly healthy and happy without sacrificing taste or pleasure.
– Lose weight while you eat like a king (or Queen).
– Free yourself of diseases and ailments without medication.
– Develop eating habits which will bring you a sense of inner peace and well-being.
– Free your children (and yourself) of many so-called behavioral problems
Prem is excited to be at Synergy and will share his skills and recipes with the Synergy audience in the hope that they will be inspired by the raw food lifestyle.
3)PETE PHOENIX..SQUATTING AND DIRECT ACTION LEGEND reviewing the past and looking at the future of squatting and direct action
Phoenix is a direct action veteran of Twyford Down, Solsbury Hill, M11, Criminal Justice Bill ’94, Newbury, Wandsworth and StGeorges Hill. Since ’92 he has squatted the BCCI bank, Rainbow centre in Kentish Town, St Georges Theatre in Tufnel Park and various other buildings as action centres leading to an agreement with Circle 33 Housing Assoc for a 13 room mansion in Hampstead as the Circle Community Centre. Phoenix is currently preparing a manual for squatters. His talk will review the squatting and direct action scene he has been a prominent part of and with the SYNERGY audience’s help, look at the best ways of moving it further on.
4)JEWDAS…first of Jeff Lester’s ALTERNATIVE SPIRITUALITY presentations about the New Wave Rave Generation Judaism
Synergy Talks host Jeff (“Good Jeff”) Laster has been working in the alternative culture since the later sixties, both in the united states and in Britain. Formerly a radical activist, since 1993 he has specialised in organizing talks and debates of interest to the rave generation, putting on such events at clubs and festivals as well as helping to bring theatre to the rave scene in the form of the acclaimed WARP play. His aim is “Edutain” by bringing relevant political, cultural and spiritual presentations to the alternative scene, examining and or portraying various aspects of current issues, agendas and belief systems.
Jewdas is the focus point of radical Judaism in the UK and beyond. Promoting hemisiche culture on acid, jewdas whips up Talmud, satire, heresy and cream cheese into a chicken soup of underground Diaspora culture. Jewdas fully supports the Anglo Jewish establishment and would never criticise the state of Israel .
Jewdas will bring the spirit of Eastern Europe to Synergy with manic singing dance and storytelling that will transport you to the Steppes of Russia, or at least to Stamford Hill. Not your average introduction to Judaism……..
