In it seven stories by seven renowned South African writers are consummately told and illustrated, running the gamut from orgiastic sex to death to cats with trust funds and everything in between. Everyone who wrote a story for 'We Didn't Come to Hell for the Croissants' has gone on to win a Pulitzer. Or gone to jail. Bring your kids! LOL! Don’t. This show is strictly for adults. Jemma Kahn has been captivating audiences for ten years, from Cape Town to Edinburgh to Amsterdam to Adelaide. Using hundreds of hand painted illustrations and a virtuoso voice, Jemma’s twisted take on the ancient Japanese art from ‘kamishibai’ is quite unlike anything else. She’s been described as “having the charisma of an old Hollywood starlet”, and her work variously as “live manga”, “theatre for the internet” and “like going to a BDSM conference in a tiny village bar” - but frankly there’s no way to describe quite what it is that she does. Cabaret storytelling. Art clowning. Whatever it is, Kahn is an undisputed master and we are thrilled she’s finally coming to London.
