BOWIE AND MERCURY RISING (26-30 JULY)
BOWIE AND MERCURY RISING – MAJOR TOM AND KING FREDDIE LIVE FOREVER.
This concert celebrates the music and lives of Bowie and Mercury through the eyes of a London actress, searching
for hope after the passing of David Bowie. Through her journey we re-imagine the life and times of these two much loved icons, through music and sublime dance. Warren Wills, winner of the Carling London Best Musical Award, returns to Chapel off Chapel with this new concert, after two sellout seasons of “Genesis to Broadway”.
Zimbabwean born and Melbourne based singer songwriter Thando Sikwila has been “placed in a league all her own” – Ms Hennesy Speaks Blog. 2015 saw the release of her single “Won’t You Be Mine”, touring the East Coast, and subsequently making her professional theatre debut as Ef e White in StageArt’s Dreamgirls. Jess Mortlock (On the Rocks) star, dancer extraordinaire, “a sparkling jewel”.
The concert re-imagines such classics as “Space Oddity”, ”Life on Mars”, “The Show Must go On”, ”We are the
Champions” and many others.
Don’t miss this spellbinding spectacle created and directed by Warren Wills (Royal Shakespeare Company,
Woody Allen, Pamela Anderson, Margaret Atwood). Lighting Design by Jason Bovaird (Movinglight Productions)
