Cabaret Chordelia / cabaret dance and voice
Company Chordelia is known for its willingness to push the boundaries of modern dance and strike an emotional chord. This was evident when they brought their latest performance Cabaret Chordelia to the Fringe in 2011.
Described as an ambitious, intelligent and human portrayal of modern dance, Cabaret Chordelia is unlike other cabaret performances as the company’s artistic director, Kally Lloyd-Jones, explains: “Cabaret Chordelia is inspired by 1930s Berlin cabaret, which seeks to reflect and observe as well as entertain.”
The sassy show consists of songs and classical dance, with thought-provoking inflections of modern movement, from torch song to toe-tapping numbers, designed to take audiences on an emotional journey.
“The cabaret is visually really beautiful,” says Lloyd-Jones. “It’s about love and human nature, sensual and questioning, and both traditional and contemporary.”
