Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre presents:
French Café — a dance theatre cabaret
Doors open for French Bistro food and drinks and curtain-raiser performances for 1 hour before the shows, so book a table and come and relax!
Be immersed in the parade of life: a celebration of human foibles in a café where nobody speaks the same language and absurd is the order of the day. BOOK A TABLE AND FIND YOURSELF TRULY IMMERSED IN THIS GLORIOUS PARADE OF SONG AND DANCE.
About French Café: Cross-dressing Maxine is the proprietress of a small town café which serves as a local watering-hole through the day and a cabaret at night, fuelled by Maxine’s memories of his earlier high life as a drag queen.
In-house star Tarelle keeps the pecking order intact against the aspirations of dreamy dish-washer- cum-dancer Cleopatra and any insouciant itinerants. A heavy-metal fuelled chef named Zerkov has a love-hate relationship with the no-nonsense waitress Alice, that is, until she gets distracted by her passion for the mysterious card-playing troubadour.
Michael Hennessy, Artistic Director of Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre, joins forces with dramaturg/co-director Kate McDowell to create a quirky production, in which nine emerging professional performers with disability and three wannabe big time cabaret artists vie for audience attention and gradually reveal the rich complexities of their characters and relationships.
