ABOUT THE SHOW:
Mama Alto is a voice that defies gender: the Countertenor Diva. Intoxicating, ethereal and bewitching, this is a cabaret about fragility and power – of the diva, of the voice, and of the human heart.Returning from an award-winning 2014 three state tour, Countertenor Diva is a stunning song cycle on the concept of the diva. Through complex layers of song, gesture and performativity, the diva identity is explored: storyteller, force of nature, phenomenon, and vulnerable human being.
This show was developed at The Butterfly Club Melbourne, and the 2014 National Tour included Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe at La Boheme, and Melbourne Cabaret Festival at The Butterfly Club. The 2015 remount was May 1, 2 & 3 at The Butterfly Club, and our Hares & Hyenas showing is proudly universally accessible to patrons using wheelchairs, walking frames or with restricted mobility.
