A Lyrical Dance Concert mixes comedy, cabaret and dance as Gillie Kleiman (pictured), Sara Lindström and Eleanor Sikorski dance out the lyrics of chart hits in a whirlwind of DIY glamour and divas and guitar solos.
Visual, participatory, gently political and full of fun, the show encourages audiences to get their glad-rags on and experience this mixed-up whirlwind of glamorous divas, guitar solos and gangster rappers…
Gillie and Sara, both artists working in dance and choreography, met in an artist’s exchange in France in 2010. Realising almost instantly that they shared a love of the twists of language and song that pop music offers, not to mention a common – and ridiculous – sense of humour, they set about planting the seeds of the show in Gillie’s bedroom.
They say: “We’re so excited to be able to meet people across the country with this show. It’s extra exciting this time around, as our great pal Eleanor Sikorski will be joining Gillie on stage.”
A Lyrical Dance Concert opens at Norwich Arts Centre on November 5 and tours until February 28. See www.alyricaldanceconcert.com for details.
