The Exotic Lives of Lola Montez

lola backbend

Join Kingston Arts in a small GEM production......

Showered with gold nuggets and insults, swathed in scandal - her erotic Spider Dance was “the most libertinish and indelicate performance that could be given on the public stage" (Sydney Morning Herald 1855).

From Kingston Arts favourites and award winning creators of the smash-hit national touring legend Caravan Burlesque, the internationally adored Glory Box and the haunting drama The Flood, comes a brand new drama decked in couture black lace, a thousand true lies, jaw-dropping dance, multi-award winning storytelling, sultry song and a death scene or three.

Starring triple Green Room Best Actress Winner (and direct descendant of Lola herself!) Miss Caroline Lee and Parisian dance siren Holly Durant, directed by the international Queen of Provocative Variety Moira Finucane, Lola is a wildly contemporary dreamscape steeped in Australian history.

Created in partnership with Her Majesty's Ballarat.
