Effigies of Wickedness
Information for Effigies of Wickedness at The Gate Theatre, Inner London (Cabaret). Welcome to the cabaret of degenerate music! Where you can be just who you want to be! In a ground-breaking collaboration between the Gate Theatre and ENO we are thrilled to present a cabaret of riotous, witty, and shockingly prophetic songs, banned by the Nazis in the 1930s. As the Nazis identified difference as something to be afraid of, the Weimar cabaret scene danced on with songs that celebrated it. With artists from Brecht and Weill to Schoenberg, this subversive underground scene was bursting at the seams with brilliant, visionary voices. No surprise then, that they were censored, exiled, and incarcerated shortly after as 'degenerates'. And their songs have been all but lost since. Until now. Sung in English
Age Advisory: 14+
Performers Peter Brathwaite (baritone), Katie Bray (mezzo-soprano), Le Gateau Chocolat, Lucy McCormick, Fra Rustumji (musician), Geri Allen (musician), Cassie Kinoshi (musician).
