Cabaret performer Monica Salvi and filmmaker Samantha Oči have partnered up to create an eccentric promotional video for the upcoming stage show “Mad Women in my Attic! A Cabaret of Musical Lunacy” - which is due to be performed in London and New York in October 2017.
Shot in London’s Murder Mile Studio (a renowned alternative venue and S&M Dungeon) the trailer is full of dark humour. Miss Salvi describes it as “Hammer Horror meets Rocky Horror meets Alice Cooper” - citing these influences as her greatest inspirations whilst growing up. Paired with the dark and dramatically lit atmospheres that characterise Miss Oči’s cinematography style, the trailer seeks to conveys a small taste of what is to come with Miss Salvi’s full theatrical show.
About the Show
Set in an imaginary lunatic asylum "Mad Women in My Attic!" is the semi-autobiographical cabaret brainchild of Monica Salvi, an Italian performer based in London, UK. With multiple costume changes, haunting and comedic songs from the most daring and dark musical theatre repertoire (such as Sweeney Todd, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Threepenny Opera, Next to Normal, Jane Eyre, Sunset Boulevard), and some kinky audience participation, Mad Women in my Attic! is a fantastic romp through murderous, wicked and insane characters that Miss Salvi had the pleasure to play in her stage career.
