A Lyrical Dance Concert: a pop-musical cabaret is a party in a comedy double act in a cabaret show in a gig in an experimental dance performance.
Number-by-ridiculous-number, the lyrics of chart hits past and present are danced out – stretched, turned, lifted and thrown. With joyful irreverence and serious fun, the show insists that pop music belongs to us and can do what we want it to do.
Get your glad-rags on, grab a drink and a pal, and giggle along with this mixed-up whirlwind of glamorous divas, guitar solos and gangster rappers
