Featuring Gaggle & special collaborators, Gaggle are delighted to announce an un-missable re-imagining of the Greek Myth Lysistrata. Taking place in a carefully constructed immersive theatrical performance at the extraordinary multi-roomed Islington Metal Works venue - this unique event will feature songs from The Mouth Of The Cave and never-seen before music, choreography and performance.
This show is part of Illuminations, a specially curated weeklong series of events and shows in London, taking place across a variety of venues around the city in November.
Following on from a recent sold out launch at London's Village Underground for their critically acclaimed debut album "from the Mouth of The Cave" this Illuminations event will see them ripping the album apart, reworking it, adding to it, and with some help from friends, amazing guest stars and an unsuspecting "audience" (set to form part of the show), create a very timely retelling of the Greek Myth Lysistrata in what they have promised will be one of the strangest musicals ever performed.
Lysistrata, in the ancient greek comedy of her name, wanted to stop the men of her country spending all their money on the needless death and destruction of a never ending War. She persuaded every woman to stop having sex, men forced to walk around deprived and desperate as they continued to fight a war that the women did not want. Older women were asked by Lysistrata to block the banks, camping around them, as things built to a crescendo of drama.
This won't be an ordinary performance or gig. Gaggle is a choir of un-auditioned singers. Like a congregation or football stadium. The line where the audience ends and the show begins will be destroyed from the off, and the Greek tragi-comedy of Lysistrata will form a back-drop to what is set to be an extraordinary immersive theatre experience in a mult-roomed former Metal Works. This will be a brave, exciting performance and promises to be an un-missable one-off event.
