Ladies and Gentlemen
Lea Anderson’s beguiling and jocular soirée of magic, music and dance returns in 2017. 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 recalled punch-lines in a tightly knit choreography of objects, sound and music. The result is an eccentric, surreal and often hilarious theatrical experience where regret and failure meet.
Lea Anderson is a one-off, in a league of her own ... Take your inner child with you and you’ll love it
Running time: 55mins approx.
