ELLA FILAR’s KROWS BAR KABARET presents:
RAISING ‘Ell!: Dante’s Inferno dragged kicking and screaming into 2017,with the help of a saxophone, a violin, a keyboard and an hour of wildly subversive cabaret
Imagine Dante’s journey into the Inferno, but set in 2017. The 7 deadly sins are replaced by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tinder, Grindr and Youtube. A cacophonous collection of four singers and three musicians nosedive through a Massive LCD Screen. What happens next will mess with your head “virtually” more than The Bible, Koran, Torah and ABC News all rolled into one.
….all the songs and the music are world class with that smoky, jagged, disturbing Weimar feel
off-kilter time signatures of Weimar Kabaret….unusual lilt ….there is plenty of sharp political commentary and clever wordplay to be had within Filar’s lyrics
– Aussie Theatre
Performed by Linda Cookson, Bruce Langdon, Olivia Laskowski, Chris Molyneux,
