Musical morality with The Tiger Lillies

The Tiger Lillies, Jocelyn Clarke, Jiří Havelka

A creative collaboration between renowned Brechtian cabaret band The Tiger Lillies, Irish playwright Jocelyn Clarke and Czech director Jiří Havelka. The Tiger Lillies composed songs for an original performance thematically linked to François Rabelais’ Gargantua and Pantagruel. Crude, carnal and depraved, the songs contrast the dark and dirty aspects of human existence against the rules of social etiquette.
