Meow Meow, the jet-setting musical sensation, is bringing European glamour to the Sydney Festival in a dazzling and titillating performance extravaganza.
With her chaotic blend of kamikaze cabaret, acid jazz and 60s French pop, Meow Meow embarks upon a musical journey in search of the holiest of all grails – love.
Infamous in Paris, New York and Europe for her glamorously trashy persona and bizarre on-stage antics, Meow Meow tackles issues of the bleeding heart from an entirely unique perspective.
“I wouldn’t be honest with myself if I didn’t admit that I find heartbreak tragic but also rather amusing,” she told SSO.
“My shows employ aspects of musical theatre, performance art and stand-up comedy to portray the emotional gymnastics of love.
“Once you’ve had your heart broken, life truly begins. My show can get quite bleak … the music evokes the darkest feelings of pain and loneliness. Love resides in the same part of the brain as hunger and addiction – it is a primal need.”
Scaling the pinnacles of love and descending the depths of solitude, Meow’s explosive stage presence, jaw-dropping vocal ability and glamorous aesthetic creates moments that will leave any audience in awe.
“I can’t say everyone will like the show, but it will certainly create something … shock, jubilation, offence, confusion or hopefully all of the above,” she said.
“I cannot wait to step onto the Pilgrim Theatre stage in Sydney. It is such a gorgeous and tiny space. I can really get into people … and on them, up close and personal with Meow.”
Meow Meow’s Insert the Name of the Person You Love is a must-see at the Sydney Festival. With over-the top operatic intensity, sequins, fishnets, smeared lipstick and wine-stained couture the trashy and oh so glamorous performance will transport you to another time – a time when being disgustingly fabulous is not just a trend but a necessity.
Meow Meow plays the Pilgrim Theatre 22-26 January. Tickets start at $40. Bookings: 1300 723 038.
