f'eatre presents...


Soho Theatre, 5-7th November 7, 9 and 10pm.

Following a sell out run in the 5065 Lift, Pleasance Courtyard Edinburgh 2003, this hit transfers to Soho Theatre. A tribute to the late, great Serge Gainsbourg, this show will bring life to his music and lyrical genius, sadly often missed by a British audience. Some of his most exquisite pieces were his beautifully crafted duets, inspired by his relationships with various muses (Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and his daughter Charlotte). Here we explore a few of them. He effortlessly reflects the tensions, passion and above all the comedy that exists in relationships.

Underneath a glitter ball with soft disco lights, four performers in 70's evening wear - what better environment than an intimate corner Soho Theatre to explore the intimate, kitsch, comic and deeply sensual world of the French legend.

Songs will be performed by two members of cult pop band Electronic Eye Machine: Peter Brewis (guitar) and Laura Staniland (keyboards). Fiona Staniland and Toby Mace will sing. Paul Betts makes a special guest appearance on percussion.

Written, directed and choreographed by Fiona Staniland for f'eatre.
