About: Marlene - The Competition

Late at night in a Soho cabaret bar, an impersonator pulls on a mask and lives another life for a while in the hope, perhaps, of making more sense of her own. Fusing the frivolous style of cabaret with song and dance, smoke and fishnets, Marlene reveals the naked truth about a middle aged female immigrant artist as she pays homage to an idol.

Following a scratch performance at FIRST in 2014, Marlene returns to the TBT for its world premiere. Eva Magyar has worked as a performer and choreograher with companies including Kneehigh and the National Theatre. As director of Hungarian company The Shamans, her work has won a Herald Angel Award in Edinburgh, George Soros Festival Award in Budapest, Best Director at the Cairo International Festival and Best Show at the Poland International Festival.

Writer and performer – Eva Magyar
Music – Andras Monori
Costume – Idiko Tihanyi
Co-writer – Katherine Manners
Lighting Designer- Marco Alba
Assistant director – Dan Chamber

Part of FIRST 2015: A FESTIVAL OF SOLO PERFORMANCES, supported by Arts Council England
