“This show is a thrilling new vehicle for me- I’m using my craft to provoke the conversations I want the world to be having Broadcast through tight choreography, lighting effects and interwoven soundscapes, The Executioners is laying naked the truth about technological overindulgence and the sensory overload in daily life, and trying to combat the sense of helplessness in the face of big issues.”
Razor-sharp, ruthless, and accomplished with thrilling precision, this multi-disciplinary contemporary cabaret is driven by the urgent political agenda of several highly skilled and socially aware individuals. Written and performed by internationally acclaimed award-winning cabaret chanteuse and rabble-rouser Anya Anastasia, and her partner in crime Gareth Chin.
