World Premiere; Adelaide Exclusive
Australia

From the time that Marie Antoinette was associated with the famous words “let them eat cake”, human beings have hungered for excess. Food. Sex. Success and validation. All innate human desires. But how many ‘likes’ on facebook, will make you feel full?

This is a song catalogue of sugary excess and sweet gratification. Johanna Allen returns in a premiere show exploring historical exorbitance and present day self-absorption: Madonna’s Material Girl on cello, Cole Porter’s Let’s Do It with body percussion, and Kylie’s Confide in Me in tango form. Popular music reimagined. Desire and devouring.

Reckless consumption has never sounded so good…

Johanna Allen is Sophia Loren, Peggy Lee and Kiri Te Kanawa rolled into one. Broadway World
