  • Visitor Information

A remarkable and unusual music theatre piece, Variete was originally written, directed and performed by Lindsay Kemp with his internationally renowned company. Though perhaps not a household name, Kemp has been hugely influential on a generation of performers. "Kemp influenced David Bowie, and thus influenced every pop musician with the possible exception of Paul Weller" (The Guardian). This Riverside Studios staging is the first time that Kemp has allowed another company to produce one of his works and it is directed by Kinny Gardner who was in the original cast and has been a soloist in the Kemp Company for over 20 years.

 

About Riverside Studios

Riverside Studios has a little bit of everything under its roof, including a cinema, cafe and studio theatre. The cinema is one of the few in London which regularly has double bills and there are also Saturday and Sunday matinees. Expect to see plenty of independent films, classics, foreign and experimental art films here. More about Riverside Studios
