SPIDER DANCE: CELEBRATING FANNY KELLY AND LOLA MONTEZ

Come on a fantastical journey through the lives and loves, romances and revolutions of one of the great women of the nineteenth century and the woman who was her muse. Their journey began here in Soho. Lola Montez was famed for her Spider Dance, an extraordinary creation that was part Tarantella, part crazed trance-dance, part erotic performance. It was uniquely the beginnings of both Burlesque and Contemporary dance pre-echoing artists as diverse as Isadora Duncan, Gipsy Rose Lee and Josephine Baker.

Watch Fanny Kelly's gender fluid performances and Lola Montez's transgressive dances. Hear their words and be astonished by what is presented before you. Prepare to be horsewhipped!
