Telling the story of soul legend Etta James' turbulent life and features some of her most beloved songs including Tell Mama, Something's Got A Hold On Me, Sugar On The Floor, the heart rending I'd Rather Go Blind, her iconic signature song At Last and more. Vika puts her heart and soul into this unforgettable show and is joined on stage by some of Australia's finest and funkiest musicians. During a long and tumultuous career that saw her win six Grammy Awards and a star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Etta James has influenced a vast array of artists from Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and Rod Stewart and is acknowledged as inspiring the careers of a new generation of singers from Christina Aguilera, Joss Stone, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse. Sadly, Etta's frantic recording and touring schedule coincided with her ever-growing addiction problems and over time she not only sang the blues...she lived the blues. Mercifully, her passion for life and strength of character saw her conquer her demons and she continued to record and perform into her seventies. With respect, this is her story.
Seventies pop star - 'Lydia', 'Women of Mine' and 'Lucky Stars' to name but a few songs.
Taking its inspiration from The Tower, by WB Yeats, the play tells the story of an old man who loses his wife to cancer. After she passes away, William escapes to a paradise of fantasy and past memories, a place far from the reality of his grief. Returning from beyond the grave, Rose revisits her widowed companion to perform one last act of love: to help him let go. The unfolding drama is told entirely without words, in their place movement, a gestural language, haunting accordion music and a use of masks that Lecoq-trained Theatre Ad Infinitum have entirely re-thought for this production.
