Variété
By Lindsay Kemp and Carlos Miranda, Directed by Kinny Gardner, Designed by Chris de Wilde

 

‘The moon is up, so red, like blood on iron…’ 1936 Hamburg, Germany. A wandering naïf joins a seedy sideshow circus, the eccentric cast of which are rarely what they seem. As his success playing ‘The Bird Man’ grows, so does his psychotic obsession with the deaf trapeze dancer Maria.

On one fateful moon drenched night he abandons his timidity to finally embrace his violence and wreak revenge…but was it real? Did it happen?

Variété is a remarkable and unusual music theatre piece originally written, directed and performed by Lindsay Kemp with his internationally renowned company. This is the first time that Kemp has allowed another company to produce one of his works and it is directed by Kinny Gardner who was in the original cast and has been a soloist in the Kemp Company for over twenty years. Composer Carlos Miranda is re-creating and re-arranging the score for YMT’s exciting re-worked version of Varieté.

Lindsay Kemp holds iconic status as a dance and mime artist, a product of the 1960s art revolution, a major influence on almost every rock musician from David Bowie and Kate Bush onwards.

 

RUNNING TIME 60 minutes.

 

AGE SUITABILITY

Variété contains some adult themes and may be more appropriate for ages 16 and above.
