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.
