Cabaret Of The Unlikely

Welcome to the Cabaret

At BATS THEATRE, 1 Kent Tce Wellington Tuesday – Saturday, 8th – 12th March At 7pm Booking Through Bats (04) 802 4175

Following on from their two successful productions in 2004, Unbearable Journeys and The (Un)Known Island, Roadworks has been invited by Bats Theatre to present their latest work, Cabaret of the Unlikely.

With a combination of company members and special guests, this cabaret promises to be packed with surprises. Featuring puppets, masks, musicians and performance artists, you must expect the unexpected. From Roadworks’ top hits from the past to acts unknown and untested, the cabaret is a montage of unusual performance events directed by Sally Rodwell.

Guests joining Roadworks during the Cabaret of the Unlikely season include musicians Chris Palmer, Jeff Henderson, Johnny Marks, Leila Adu, Craig Taylor, vocalist Kate Telford and puppeteer Carlos Wedde.

The Capital Times called Unbearable Journeys – “A stunning piece of theatre.”

Jennifer Shennan in the DominionPost wrote: “In chant and dance, through “foreign” accents, with flashed fragments of maps and boundaries marked by ropes, with sinister masks and quarrelling puppets, with minimal props and lashings of imagination, the hour-long unbroken show is impeccably staged.”

Of The Un(Known) Island John Smythe in The National Business Review wrote: “It remains an important facet of freedom that such conscientious writers and performers may create such theatre events…”

Roadworks continues to explore text, performance and visual imagery in this their latest work.
