Brisbane Powerhouse presents
Dangling My Tootsies
Featuring the songs and stories of cabaret legend Agnes Bernelle
Wed 11 - Sat 14 Jul 2012
Agnes Bernelle was the embodiment of the subversive side of German Cabaret.
Her inimitable songs and stories, using the notoriously wry lyrics of 1930s poet Joachim Ringelnatz (as well as those of Marc Almond and Tom Waits) are brought to life in this unique cabaret performance by the acclaimed Annie Lee.
Annie is joined by three celebrated musicians who each bring their own richly layered twist to this curious and enchanting show.
Dangling My Tootsies, with its unusual, subversive and tantalising songs and stories, continues the legacy of an indomitable woman who devoted her entire life to cabaret.
Annie is joined by three highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists, John Rodgers, Sallie Campbell and Rob Davidson, who together bring their own richly layered twist to this curious and enchanting show.
Duration: 1hr 15mins
"Annie Lee amazed with her masterful renditions of Kurt Weill's blackly comic and multi-layered tantalising songs". - Courier Mail
"Annie Lee performed a collection of songs that immediately drew you in with their twisted lyrical whimsy. Coupled with a powerful gaze, your attention was irrevocably hers. Her tale of a spinster struck down with "a real goatee beard" has been nightmarishly brewing in my mind ever since" - Rave Magazine
