…a pedestrian cabaret that is anything but ordinary
Welcome to an evening of strong currents, potent drinks and local legend served up by Helen Paris, Leslie Hill and Claudia Barton from Curious with swirling support from a live band.
The romantic but spatially challenged cruise director Miss Paris guides the evening with reckless abandon, as sultry chanteuse Cloudy Shoreline lures us closer with her Siren Song and the philosophical Purser Hill flairs her famous ‘oblivion’ cocktails while inviting us to contemplate the World’s End.
Over the course of the evening, portraits of World’s End residents taken by acclaimed photographer Hugo Glendinning are slowly unveiled, accompanied by torch singer Cloudy Shoreline and the Slipstream Band. Remember…
The end of the world is neither here nor there
You will always be recalled by the way you wore your hair
So steady your sea legs and step aboard – destination? World’s End.
Please note that the evening will contain an element of outdoor promenade so please bring a wrap.
The performance is accompanied by an exhibition of photographs by Hugo Glendinning who has been working with Curious and the residents of World’s End to document odysseys and significant journeys in their lives. The portraits will be shown at Chelsea Theatre from 12 July as part of the InTRANSIT festival supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
