Escape to the cabaret scene of 1920s Berlin at The Impudent Muse
Located at the historic vaults of Adam Street, The Impudent Muse will transport you to a world of decadent, dissolute entertainment where live theatre is merged with exotic burlesque, Dixieland jazz and dancing till dawn. Go to that space between sleep and dreams where you can relax amongst London’s most beautifully adorned party set and escape to the cabaret scene of Twenties Berlin.
There will be live music from the fabulous Dixie Ticklers, one of the UK’s most respected acoustic trad jazz bands. The Ticklers are guaranteed to get you moving as they take you back to Twenties New Orleans with their exemplary interpretations of the music of the golden age of jazz. In addition international burlesque sensation Marianne Cheesecake will wow us with her wild and erotic homage to the legendary Josephine Baker’s scandalous Twenties ‘Danse Banane’.
Theatre Lab will be performing a series of dark and brooding vignettes from Bertolt Brecht’s satirical 1928 play ‘The Threepenny Opera’, while Billie Rae, a unique burlesque performer with grace and poise reminiscent of the bohemian starlets and vamps of the Twenties, will take you back to the truly decadent and strange world of smoky Opium dens, the promiscuous Casbahs and the lavish bordellos of the hedonistic Belle Epoque.
DJ Swingin’ Dickie will keep you dancing till dawn!
