Lea Anderson: Ladies and Gentlemen
“a delightfully surreal theatrical gem ★★★★” The Guardian
“the whole experience is both intriguing and uplifting from beginning to end.” Dance Tabs
Multi-award winning artist Lea Anderson returns to the UK touring circuit after a six year absence - with Greenwich Dance hosting the only London performance in this current tour.
Inspired by Music Hall, Ladies and Gentlemen is a witty and absorbing visual spectacle in which choreography (Lea Anderson), music (Steve Blake) and design (Tim Spooner) conjure the all but forgotten stage show of six has-been performers.
Besieged by ever shifting, inscrutable and enigmatic props, Man, Woman, the Twins, Pet and the Other One present misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines in a complex and tightly knit choreography of objects accompanied by sound and music they perform themselves. The result is an eccentric, surreal and often hilarious theatrical experience where regret and failure meet.
This event is presented in cabaret style.
