A Dream Turns Sour – The Tiger Lillies (part of the After a War series in LIFT 2014)


Operating within their own eccentric definitions, The Tiger Lillies are recognised as one of the foremost avant-garde bands in the world and the Godfathers of alternative cabaret. For this new performance, they are transforming British first world war poetry— by the likes of Arthur West, John McCrae, Noel Hodgson and Wilfred Owen — into a haunting, angry, lyrical set of songs. Expect a startling mixture of opera, Gypsy song, Left-Bank Paris and black humour in a spectacular musical finale to After a War.
