Written & Performed by Arinzé Kene
A work-in-progress presented by the Bush Theatre
Here is the city that we live in,
Notice that the city that we live in is alive,
Analyze our city and you’ll find, that our city even has bodily features,
Our city’s organs function like any living creature,
Our city is a living creature,
Some of us are viruses.
Arinzé Kene (God’s Property, Soho and Albany Theatres) delivers a lyrically virtuoso performance, part direct address, part rhyme, about one epic journey through the pulsating heart and dark soul of East London.
by Jumoké Fashola
Alongside a distinguished award winning career in television and radio mainly as a religious broadcaster, vocalist Jumoké Fashola has a dirty little secret…
She loves singing risqué blues songs.
Dirty Little Secrets aka The Blues Show explores raunchy and lecherous blues, from 1920s gems to contemporary song, combining musical theatre and cabaret to showcase ditties that are titillating and salacious.
Celebrating the blues in all its feisty glory, ‘Dirty Little Secrets’, reveals the stories behind of some of the raunchiest songs written by songwriters such as Andy Razaf & Stephen Sondheim, and performed by singers such as Bessie Smith, Alberta Hunter & Nina Simone. A new show, it was first performed at the London Festival of Cabaret 2015.
