Cabaret Chordelia

Company Chordelia presents

Cabaret Chordelia

Tue 8 - Thu 10 Nov 2011 | 7.30pm | £9/£7 + bf

Putting their trademark modern stamp on live cabaret, Company Chordelia present an evening of song and dance, sensuality and sumptuousness.

Inspired by 1930s Berlin cabaret which “seeks to reflect and observe as well as entertain”, Cabaret Chordelia is an ambitious, intelligent interpretation of the genre, adding intellect, humour and poise and morphing popular entertainment into something resembling high art.

Under the direction of Kally Lloyd-Jones, traditional touches intermingle with modern; alongside the high leg kicks and Minelli-esque vamping, classical dance sequences are infused with 21st Century twitches, and old cabaret songs sit side-by-side with vacuous pop and darker moments of emotional depth.

Company Chordelia is a Scottish dance-theatre company taking a forward-thinking approach to traditional forms. Past work includes Red Shoes, Miranda and Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins.

“Certainly cool, undoubtedly intelligent, Cabaret Chordelia is another wry entry into the company’s catalogue.”
