Silly Season with Tina Del Twist

  • Kew Court House 188 High Street Kew, VIC, 3101 Australia (map)

Join cabaret powerhouse Tina Del Twist and eclectic virtuoso’s The Letter String Quartet for a musical comedy collaboration like no other – a debauched sensory of songs and stories celebrating the year that was, is and will be.

Known for her ‘beautiful voice and wicked sense of comic timing’ (The Age), the award winning Tina Del Twist has featured on ABCTV’s Comedy Up Late, has performed sell-out seasons with Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Darwin Festival and has been invited to perform in Copenhagen, Berlin, Edinburgh, and NYC. Loved by audiences and critics alike, this gin-soaked velvet draped madame has been described as the lovechild of Dame Edna and Amy Winehouse.

The Letter String Quartet present a fresh aspect to chamber music. Each member an established and celebrated musician/composer, the quartet have performed live with a variety of acts including Laura Jean, Augie March and John Cale. In 2016 they presented a series at The Melbourne Recital Centre which included commissioned compositions by Wally Gunn, Mick Harvey, Andrea Keller and Bree Van Ryke. TLSQ are Steph O’Hara (violin/vocals), Lizzy Welsh (violin/vocals), Zoë Barry (cello/vocals) & Biddy Connor (viola/vocals).

‘Tina is a comic genius. You won’t see a show so musically diverse.’– The Australia Times
