Seductive and exhilarating
“You’re my one true love…. For now”
Feisty, feminist, fierce – multi-award winning internationally acclaimed cabaret femme fatale Anya Anastasia – has gone ROGUE! Her new show ‘Rogue Romantic’ makes its European premiere this year at Assembly’s Checkpoint for the whole month of August.
“…I couldn’t help but be seduced. Wickedly talented, Anya not only hits the right notes, but she rocks out on the keys and ukulele…jam packed with innuendo and tongue-in-cheek humour, the audience hung on to her every word.” ADELAIDE ADVERTISTER APRIL 2017 ****1/2
Darling of the Adelaide Fringe, Anya Anastasia was named by the Adelaide Advertiser as “Best in Fringe” 2017. Anastasia is an Adelaide-born cabaret artist comes to Edinburgh as an ambassador for Adelaide Festivals with funding support from Arts South Australia’s “Made in Adelaide” programme.
Armed with a biting wit fuelled by a lust for revenge and backed up by her new kick-ass all female band – featuring Bec Matthews (percussion) Annie Siegmann (Bass) Laurie Black (keys) – Anya’s Rogue Romantic is a seductive and exhilarating night of music, theatre and fun. A night filled electrifying twists, hilarious physical comedy and intense audience interaction this is a show not to be missed. Audiences will experience the thrill of this extravagant glamorous and off-kilter diva right in their very laps (literally)!
“…Anastasia shares her many talents generously. One minute she becomes a hip-hop skeleton, the next she’s singing wittily to her almost flamenco-like ukulele playing…no holds barred…” HERALD ****
Channelling Yma Sumac and Shirley Bassey, Anya’s vocals range from husky cabaret to operatic soprano, to the delight of cabaret, live music and theatre lovers. ‘Rogue Romantic’ follows hot on the heels of her smash hit critically acclaimed 2016 Edinburgh Fringe season of ‘Torte e Mort: Songs of Cake and Death’ which also won The 2016 Adelaide Fringe Weekly Award for Best Cabaret.
“…an exquisite cabaret show full of entertaining wit and enlightening spectacle. A piece that raises the bar and cheers.” EDINBURGH FESTIVAL MAGAZINE *****
