Written & performed by Jessamae St James. Directed by Steven Gates. The Butterfly Club, Melbourne CBD. 20-25 September 2016
Jessamae St James, in a spangled frock and platforms, plays piano, kazoo, electric ukulele and some kind of weird electric keyboard on her knees. She claims that she cannot play any of these instruments very well – but, hey, it’s cabaret – right? - and a kind of rambling, confessional address is integral. She also uses an electronic ‘effects station’ to make loops of her own voice.
