"The Cholmondeleys and the Featherstonehaughs, both led by artistic director Lea Anderson, are performing Dancing On Your Grave, which proved a big success at 2008's Edinburgh Fringe and a host of pop festivals."Toe tapping epitaphs, spectral harmonies, and bone rattling banjoleles." Here's a free taste entitled Holiday from Death.
The companies are known for their pioneering work in non- theatrical spaces and venues.
Three dancers (one Featherstonehaugh and two Cholmondeleys) join musicians and composers Steve Blake and Nigel Burch onstage as a five-piece music hall troupe - The Corpse de Ballet. (ouch!, -ed.)
They are desperately downtrodden and travelling on a seemingly never-ending purgatorial tour. This all-singing all-dancing music hall experience features music written and performed onstage by composer Blake and ukulele bashing minstrel Burch of the Flea Pit Orchestra, in a style described as 'Tim Burton meets George Formby'." (nice!)
