Green Room Music
Inspired by the razor-sharp offerings of Australian poets Jordie Albiston, Alison Croggon and Kathleen Mary Fallon, seven-piece chamber-pop outfit The Villainelles make their Melbourne debut with two nights of cabaret-folk electronica layered with shades of opera in a performance of the same name.
Featuring award-winning theatre and screen composer Andrée Greenwell, The Villainelles’ lineup includes Sydney’s finest mix of noise-art, classical, indie-pop, impro and crossover musical talents. Greenwell’s lavish music and arresting performance create a compelling context for her reflections on enigmatic women: ten ‘villain-elles’ including Medea, Amelia Earhart, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Princess Di and The Blessed Virgin Mary.
