Revue ZouZou: 1930s Paris comes to Nunhead

Back in 2010, there was a great 1920s night at the Ivy House (Stuart Road SE15) themed around the film Piccadilly. The people behind it have also been doing the Brockley Jack Film Club, and now they are back at the Ivy House putting on 'Revue ZouZou' on 8 February 2014. They say:

'we move through the decades to 1930s Paris.  A time of Gypsy jazz, surrealist adventure and cabaret. Come to experience music, magic and moving images.  Dressing up, drinking cocktails and dancing are recommended – but nothing except having a good time is compulsory'.

Acts include:

- gypsy jazz ensemble Belleville RendezVous ('Bringing to life the spirit of Django Reinhardt and the Quintette du Hot Club de France')

- alternative magician Dee Riley ('Mysterious and hauntingly dark entertainment, stretching the limits of human belief and delving into the depths of the power of the mind. His ”Illusion Of Laughter” and “DistasterPiece”  shows sold out')

- 'offbeat, surreal comedy' from the Dead Secrets ('Following their success at the Edinburgh fringe.. surreal comedy with a special thirties Parisian twist for the night')
