Maho Ihara in Elvis Legs (Quarantine Mix)
Thank you very much to everyone who generously supported our Kickstarter campaign to create Elvis Legs (Quarantine Mix). We raised £13,134 in total and we have already started work on the film. No release date yet but coming very soon.
I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to create a new filmed version of Elvis Legs, first created for The Featherstonehaughs Go Las Vegas in 1995. This project will incorporate 3 casts of Elvis legs (9 dancers) who will perform and film the dance at home, creating a 9 panel Quarantine Mix. This project will pay unemployed dancers languishing at home to dance and will be free to watch for a lockdown audience. !8 days to go to raise the full sum. . . .
UK tour dates announced for Ladies & Gentlemen, directed and choreographed by Lea Anderson and directed and composed by Steve Blake, costume design by Tim Spooner, lighting design by Simon Corder and starring Makiko Aoyama, Gareth Clark, Belinda Neave, Marega Palser, Caroline Sabin and Bert Van Gorp.
Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines, in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.
