Green Tile Tango Adelaide Fringe 2021

 —  —

Nexus Arts Centre, Corner North Terrace & Morphett St, ADELAIDE

A fun, entertaining show about the eccentric characters from an imaginary tango club, brought to life through a smorgasbord of original music and tango-inspired dancing, quick costume changes, French cabaret and fun sing-a-longs. Celebrates the power of community to help us laugh, cry, sing and dance to survive the rigours of love, in a place where 'everybody fits in.' Sam gets his story, Jack gets his lesson, Esta and Michele find love, and we all belt out, ‘Forget About Pierre!’ so Jaquie can reinvent herself. A visual and aural storytelling feast, of hot tango-inspired dance, slick guitar and jazz-tinged vocals. Jen de Ness: Vocals and Song Composition Bill Atkinson: Guitar and grooves and song composition

"Top quality cabaret!" Broadway World Review. "★★★★1/2" Glam Adelaide. "The Sold-out crowd was lapping it up" Weekend Notes. "Sultry, scintillating, completely mesmerising." Pizza Express at the Pheasantry Club, LONDON Green Tile Tango, an original Cabaret-style musical created by fellow composers, Jen de Ness and Bill Atkinson, will dance into Adelaide Fringe this March. International Singer, Songwriter and recording artist Jen de Ness, is a highly skilled, passionate and soul-filled performer, who gives her all in each and every show. Whether performing original acoustic-grooves and blues to thousands of festival goers or slick jazz in venues and cabaret floorshows with world-class musicians, Jen “knows how to entertain an audience” (Crazy Coqs London) and the moment Jen walks on stage, “De Ness’ distinct style is soothing and has the audience relaxing into the comfortable atmosphere she creates.” (Glam Adelaide) In Green Tile Tango the “excellent song writing” and “magnificent voice” of Jen de Ness and “superb guitar playing” of fellow composer Bill Atkinson (BWW Review 2015) are accompanied by some of the hottest and best Tango Dancers in Adelaide. Together they form one of the Adelaide Fringe festivals most diverse and entertaining acts. Green Tile Tango tells the story of the eccentric characters who frequent the Green Tile Tango Club (inspired by some real-life love skirmishes and the couples own visit to a local tango club ). Their intertwining stories come to life through a smorgasbord of original live music and tango dancing, crossed with French Cabaret and the occasional sing-a-long. The original cabaret received rave reviews Nationally and in UK with Broadway World Review describing it as “Top Quality Cabaret”, The Australian Theatre Guide calling it “both polished and intimate”, GLAM giving it 4.5 stars with “hopefully this accomplished performer will return to Adelaide soon” and Pheasantry Club in London fawning that Jen was “sultry, scintillating and completely mesmerising”.
