F Fer­ret your se­quined hot­pants from the back of the wardrobe for Vel­vet, a scin­til­lat­ing and spec­tac­u­lar disco in­ferno that champions the wild ex­cesses and mirror-ball glam­our of the 70s. It head­lines the 2017 Auck­land Live In­ter­na­tional Cabaret Season (Septem­ber 14-Oc­to­ber 21; also show­ing at the Taranaki and Christchurch art fes­ti­vals). The pro­gramme con­tin­ues its nod to the past with Star­man, a David Bowie trib­ute by Ber­lin “glam­our an­i­mal” Sven Ratze; The Sound of Fall­ing Stars, which show­cases the mu­sic and prose of some of our late mod­ern greats in­clud­ing Jeff Buck­ley, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain and Bobby Darin; and That Bloody Woman, a fiery, fresh and funny mu­si­cal in which Es­ther Stephens (Ngaire in TV3’S West­side) gives a rock­ing edge to suf­fragette Kate Shep­pard’s fight to win women the vote (na­tion­wide, Au­gust 29-Oc­to­ber 20).
