YEAR OF THE HORSE

THE COMPLETELY FICTIONAL
ADVENTURES OF JOSEPHINE BAKER

NOVEMBER 7–15
THEATRE JUNCTION GRAND

 

Born in the Year of the Horse, Josephine Baker left her homeland in the USA in the 1920s to live in France where she became an international superstar and a symbol of the Jazz Age. Hers is a story of struggle, humour, dignity and survival. In collaboration with Lisa Brawn, Kimberley Cooper uses the idea of Josephine Baker as inspiration to create a fictional fantasy in an exotic, erotic, otherworldly setting. Experience images, sounds and movement that celebrate the essence of Josephine Baker set to an original score performed by a three-piece band. Note: there will be some nudity in this production.
