Voodoo Vaudeville: New Orleans' Magic Sprinkled Over Komedia

Welcome to the world of Voodoo Vaudeville, where sinister figures stalk the shadows in a luscious never-never land of defiant performance, deviant theatricality, twisted cabaret, cruel yet tender comedy and cutting edge contemporary dance.
Strange Days @ The Mardi Gras

The Mardi Gras has hit town, so hold out your hand and let the Krewe de Voodoo parade you through a gumbo of masquerade balls, Big Easy women and hot brass sounds.

But it's not all bourbon and beads - make sure your mojo is workin', as voodoo zombies are on the loose and the next Jazz funeral could be yours.

Choose to ward away the spirits with gris gris bags, or embrace the unknown with your very own Voodoo doll, and prepare yourself to follow a Southern Belle on a journey of untold bewitchery and mysticism, led by the charismatic Chris Cresswell and the Vaudeville gang.

With spicy Gumbo on tap and enough Cajun delights to spirit you away, the krewe that brought you Edinburgh favourites Skin of the Moon, Vampires of Variety and Fantasmagoria are back - there's New Orleans' magic in the air and it's coming to get you!


VOODOO VAUDEVILLE visits Komedia on Friday 23 February at 9pm.

Tickets are £10/£8 conc. and are available without a booking fee on-line at www.komedia.co.uk/brighton or from the Box Office on 01273 647100.
