Meow Meow

Post-post-modern diva Meow Meow specialises in a unique brand of kamikaze cabaret and performance art exotica.

The crowd-surfing queen of song ‘drags cabaret kicking and screaming into the 21st century’ (Time Out NY). Named one of the top performers of 2010 by The New Yorker and ‘a phenomenon’ by the Australian press, Meow has been curated by David Bowie, Pina Bausch, Baryshnikov and others.

She has created original works for international arts festival and theatres, including Soho Theatre, Malthouse Theatre and the Sydney Opera House (Vamp!, Meow to the World, Beyond Glamour, Matchgirl). Meow’s album Vamp, with composer Iain Grandage, was released this year. With Pink Martini’s Thomas M. Lauderdale, she has written and recorded the album Here Kitty Kitty …The Lost Sessions, due for release in 2012.

She has won the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe Prize, Adelaide Festival Fringe prize, New York Franklin Furnace Performance Art Award, Sydney Theatre Critics Award and numerous Green Room Awards. She is currently nominated for the London Cabaret Award.

She returns to Melbourne from a sensational series of solo concerts at the legendary Apollo on London’s glittering West End. She performs at the Famous Spiegeltent in Melbourne in February and debuts next with the London Philharmonic in Paris and London.
