KOVID RAT KABARET
Mon 26 Sep to Sat 1 Oct
The Covid 19 Pandemic generated lockdowns and solitude. Business went bust - kaput - no comfort shopping spree. No retail therapy. Four mild neurotics on probiotics Karen, Adam, Claire and Andrew try to zoom their way out of Iso Bubble into “One size-fits-all”, bare your soul, self-inflatable Therapy Psychobabble. But the Fraudulent Fraulein Freud bursts their Therapy Psychobabble with highly infectious songs of the Weimar variety and the four Zoombies find themselves on stage of The Butterfly Club mutating into Kovid Rats!!!
ELLA FILAR & CERISE DE GELDER COLLABORATION
CERISE DE GELDER has been writing for the independent theatre scene for nearly twenty years. During lockdown she accepted the challenge to add a touch of sanity to Krows Bar Kabaret’s crazy world. She didn’t succeed but she had fun trying.
ELLA FILAR’S Krows Bar Kabaret is political, vulgar, artistic, grotesque, sexy and sublime. Inspired by Left-Of-Berlin European post-war musicology and performance, its highly original, inimitable style is characterised by a rich combination of the ordinary and the fantastic. It is a joyful yet terrifying challenge.
...all the songs and the music are world class with that smoky, jagged, disturbing Weimar feel… politically and socially charged “Kabaret with a K" – Stagewhispers
