The Either/Or Cabaret.

Happy new year everyone, we thought we'd kick off 2013 with a new show and album! The Either/Or Cabaret will premiere in Odense, Denmark on the 24th January where it will run until mid-February. It will then tour to Shanghai and then to other countries over the next couple of years.

The album of the same name will be released very soon (it's finished, I have a copy in my hands) and features songs that you may of heard on tour recently - Blood Alley, Nothing Is Sin, He' s so Bad, Tears in the Rain. It will be available from the shop here. The album and show both feature the UK based musician David Coulter who worked with The Tiger Lillies on the Rain Dogs Revisited project a couple of years ago and the work of Mark Holthusen, the photographer who created all of the imagery for The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Martyn based the songs on the work of the philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and the show features a cast of Chinese and Danish performers.

THE EITHER/OR CABARET takes place in a nightclub in Shanghai in 1937, where Chinese and Europeans live their dreams. Outside the city swarm with enemies. Should the nightclub patrons stay or flee?

Together with the world renowned and Grammy nominated British cult band The Tiger Lillies, five Danish and five Chinese actors take us on a wordless journey, through newly composed and highly visual music. In the 1930s Shanghai was more sinful than Berlin and Chicago combined. The city nicknamed Sin City was heaven and hell on earth for stranded Russians fleeing the revolution, Jews fleeing Nazism and Chinese in search of happiness. In the midst of this frightening and yet captivating maelstrom of self-expression flourished a lively night-life with exotic dancers, gigolos and inveterate hedonists.

Lead singer of The Tiger Lillies, Martyn Jacques, has written the music and the performance’s libretto – which is profoundly original and at the same time very loyal to the work of Søren Kierkegaard.

THE EITHER/OR CABARET is our contribution to the celebration of the bicentennial of the philosopher Soren Kierkegaard's birth in 2013. The show is performed in English and will be playing in Shanghai in February 2013. THE EITHER/OR CABARET is a Co-production between Odense Teater, Theatre NoDomain and Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre.

The performance is sponsored by the Danish Arts Council Committee for the Performing Arts and Bikuben Foundation.
