A truly unique musical experience not to be missed. Moulin Roque is a sophisticated cabaret rock show starring Susannah Mirana. It draws upon years of this versatile artist’s experience and genre-hopping to deliver a multi-faceted performance through an eclectic mix of alternative rock, new wave and dark wave music, injected with potent shots of theatre and cabaret. A fiery yet delicately balanced cocktail.
Accompanied by a stellar band comprised of multi-instrumentalists, Clare O’Meara (John Williamson, Brian Cadd) and Jess Ciampa (Jeff Duff, Monsieur Camembert), she delves into the catalogues of artists as diverse as k.d. lang, Elvis Costello, Eartha Kitt and Nirvana. Each carefully chosen song in this motley collection gets its very own treatment, from high energy, primal rock pieces to stripped-down, bare-boned instrumentations revealing lustful lyrical content with undertones of jealousy and seduction. Based around songs that are inspiring to her, Susannah delivers a performance that stretches from darkly dramatic to downright quirky producing moments of intensity and frivolity that target the often hard to reach corners of the heart and mind.
Moulin Roque takes the many strings of a passionate performer and ties them up into 1 evocative little package. It’s one you’ll want to unwrap again and again.
