Roundhouse presents In the Round
Friday 3 February
The Tiger Lillies + Support
Tickets £17.50 – £22.50 / Doors 7pm
The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. Formed in 1989, they remain one of the most unique, provocative and genre-defying bands one could come across. The music produced by this rampageous trio is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. Their songs cover all the dark aspects of life, from prostitution and drug addiction to violence and despair, always infused with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony. They have participated in numerous shows all over the world, collaborating with artists of all disciplines: from circus performers to Shakespearean actors, experimental dancers to avant-garde photographers and burlesque puppeteers to classical music ensembles.
For this very special show, the band will be performing from their new album of band songs, Cold Night in Soho – their first album in 10 years not to be tied in to one of their theatre shows. Cold Night in Soho is released on 3 February.
“This delicious dark cabaret is Kurt Weill as scripted by Aleister Crowley, and the execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal.” The Guardian
