WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One of the most extraordinary acts you're ever likely to see. Whatever reaction they provoke, you can't ignore the Tiger Lillies. They fuse cabaret (in the true sense), vaudeville, music-hall and street theatre in a style that is totally spell-binding, always thought-provoking , often hilarious, and in every sense unique.
From the trenches to the music hall. Operating within their own eccentric definitions, the Tiger Lillies are recognised as one of the foremost avant-garde bands in the world and the Godfathers of alternative cabaret. For this new performance, they are transforming British and German first world war poetry - by the likes of Arthur West, John McCrae, Noel Hodgson and Wilfred Owen - into a haunting, angry, lyrical set of songs. Expect a startling mixture of opera, Gypsy song, Left-Bank Paris and black humour in a spectacular musical finale to After a War.
