Jarvis Cocker kicked off his special "art happening" in Shoreditch, London today (November 9), as the former Pulp frontman brings improvised music and dance to the city.

The star is taking over the Village Underground venue in Shoreditch, East London between 9 and 11 November and is inviting people to come along and jam with his band, while various activities take place. The idea is a continuation of a project that Cocker launched in Paris earlier this year.

"We had various workshops: yoga, belly dancing..." he told Radio X. "I'm hoping to get an aerobics class this time. We've got a pole dancer, who's going to teach people, which is quite funny 'cos there's all those mucky clubs round that Shoreditch area."
