A shadowy figure trapped indefinitely in a space he calls his Empire attempts every night to realise the cabaret show he has always dreamt of performing.

François Testory confronts the difficulties, fears and pleasures of creation, casting a spotlight on the nature of the performer and performance.

Testory delivers a performance combining a subtle physicality with a wide vocal range that takes on Edith Piaf torch songs and Iggy Pop classics. Ian Hill’s accordion accompaniments add a suitably sultry atmosphere and Simon Vincenzi has directed the work.
