For this very special show celebrating their 30th anniversary in the business, the Grammy nominated, Godfathers of alternative cabaret The Tiger Lillies will perform from their brand new album.
The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. In this new show the band take you on a trip in to the Devil’s Fairground where temptation and sin await – will you survive to tell the tale or will you be seduced by the Golem?
Formed in1989, The Tiger Lillies remain one of the most unique, provocative and genre-defying bands one could come across. Their music they produce is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel.
The band’s 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.
The Tiger Lillies 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. They won an Olivier award for their hit West End musical Shockheaded Peter (which they wrote and starred in).
