Client Brief : create an edgy, immersive 15 minute show for De Parade, the notorious touring theatre festival of the Netherlands
What We Did:
Inspired by Prohibition era dive bars, we wanted to revive the smoky underworld of 1920s gangsters, from the female perspective. As three powerful and assured sisters, we used sultry vocals, tongue in cheek comedy, aerial dance + erotic poetry, to really raise the tension and bring hilariously pleasurable antagonism within a highly intimate surroundings - often so close we sat on the audiences knees to tell our stories. However, the spell was broken at a critical moment - by the inevitable reality of the law!
Lucky Me ran for two successive years, and often running 8 sold out shows an evening, and also received excellent praise from 2 dutch newspapers.
