A bent Kabarett. A bar. Behind the scenes, and on the stage. Aging divas go head to head conjuring moments where love, life and sex meet death, rejection and failure. All of this in a raucous evening of unapologetic dance, splintering theatre and life affirming performance art.

The DIVAS: Dr Hedley has worked the streets as a performance artist from Lymington to Berlin. Kenneth has been playing the double bass in big orchestras since 1976. Jane is dancing with legs that have been insured by Lloyds of London.

On a good night you might see Hedley strip, Kenneth take on Bach, and Jane smoulder her way through a show tune. Through the truth-telling prism of performance art they deliver a scorching, uncompromising manifesto on relevance.

Be prepared to enjoy some disco, a martini and perhaps even shed a tear.

Produced and Presented by Second Echo Ensemble with support from the Restless Adelaide Fringe Residency, the Fringe Fund, City of Adelaide, Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Tasmania and RANT Arts Regional Arts Fund.
