“colourful, challenging and witty” Classical Source

A night of desperate satire, sensuous whimsy and bitter irony in songs, chansons, lieder and schläger by Satie, Schoenberg, Eisler, Weill, Cage, Geoffrey Hannan, Robert Fokkens and Laurence Crane.

Pulse is expanding cabaret as a medium, providing an avenue for composers to let their hair down and loosen their tongues on contemporary social issues, from asbos to schizophrenia. This show explores the archaeology of cabaret song, from its beginnings in French cafes, through pre-war Germany, post-war America, to 21st Century Britain.
