Lola’s story com­ing to Sav­er­nake

Southern Riverina news - - REAL ESTATE -

‘The Ex­otic Lives of Lola Mon­tez’ is com­ing to Sav­er­nake.

From Pa­trick White Play­wright Award win­ner Jackie Smith and world fa­mous cabaret stars Fin­u­cane & Smith comes the story of the wildest show­girl of the nine­teenth cen­tury, Lola Mon­tez.

The show will be per­formed at the Sav­er­nake School of Arts Hall, Rive­rina Hwy, on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 9 from 7pm.

Lola Mon­tez toured Aus­tralia and its gold­fields in 1855, and her ‘Spi­der Dance’ was ‘‘the most lib­er­tin­ish and in­del­i­cate per­for­mance that could be given on the pub­lic stage’’, ac­cord­ing to the Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald at the time.

Lola’s scan­dal is le­gend, in­spir­ing this brand new drama decked in cou­ture black lace, a thou­sand true lies, jaw­drop­ping dance, multi-award win­ning sto­ry­telling, sul­try song and a death scene or three.

The live per­for­mance stars triple Best Ac­tress win­ner — and di­rect de­scen­dant of Lola her­self — Miss Caro­line Lee and Parisian dancer Holly Du­rant.

It is di­rected by the in­ter­na­tional Queen of Provoca­tive Va­ri­ety Moira Fin­u­cane and cre­ated in part­ner­ship with Her Majesty’s Bal­larat.
