Welcome back to the second season of Cabaret Playroom, a space for new cabaret performances.
Established artists and emerging performers alike bring ground-breaking works-in-progress to the Albany, collaboratively curated by cabaret performer Tricity Vogue and Lisa Lee of Rude Grrl, producer of ongoing platform for new work UnderConstruction.
'Cabaret to run down side streets for - just get there early' Time Out (on Tricity Vogue)
'Mining the coalface of alternative performance' Time Out (on Rude Grrl's Underconstruction)
Hosted by Tricity Vogue
Silent clown Kiki Lovechild has wowed international crowds with comedy, vaudeville and burlesque routines described by the press as 'fantastically inventive', 'hot and humorous', 'astounding' and 'burlesque with a difference!'.
Putting his trademark glitter to one side, Marcus Reeves presents a collection of rock, pop and musical theatre anthems as his new alter-ego 'The Bald Prima Donna'. He has been described as ‘a genius– a maestro– a misfit’ by David Hoyle and has worked with Adore Delano of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Bunce's performance is outstanding...funny, evocative, sad and heart-warming' according to Fringe Review, and she’ll be gracing our stage with a mysterious work that is yet to be confirmed. Watch this space for more details...
Anna and Alice have known each other for years but hardly ever spoken to each other. Communicating through a series of nods and half bows they have agreed to enter into artistic partnership and poke their unusually small heads through the stage curtain of the Albany. Cue big entrance theme music, drumroll, smoke! (Showbiz glitz and glamour are not words associated with this act). Prepare to witness a sensory experience more powerful than scratch n’ sniff. Anna and Alice are physical performers working in devised comedy, theatre, giggle doctoring and foolery.
