ELECTRIC LONELINESS Comes to The Butterfly Club
Night Creatures' debut production, Electric Loneliness, is a vaudevillian modern folktale that explores contemporary themes of isolation, human connection, and depression. This haunting original story follows Octavia, a multi-limbed chanteuse trapped alone at the bottom of the ocean, and a Lonely Man on a quest to find where he belongs in the world. Told through an eclectic mix of reimagined tunes, from Cole Porter to The Bee Gees to Daft Punk, join these unusual but relatable characters on their adventures as they meet gloriously strange creatures and attempt to learn how to keep clam and carry on.
Night Creatures is a new Melbourne based Production Company formed by Alexandra Aldrich, Joachim Coghlan, and Owen James.
NIDA Acting graduate and two time Green Room Awards nominee Alexandra Aldrich has appeared in many Melbourne theatre productions, including Dracula, Dangerous Liaisons, and Salome with Little Ones Theatre, The Moors and Eurydice with Red Stitch, and productions across both Australia and Edinburgh for Bell Shakespeare, Essential Theatre, and Sly Rat.
Joachim Coghlan is a VCA Music Performance graduate who has performed in many musical theatre and operatic productions, such as Elegies for Angels, Punks, and Raging Queens (2017), and his original musical, Gouti: The God of Them All, for the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
Owen James is a passionate theatre maker having composed the score in Rainbow Man for Goodnight Darlings (2017), directed Chicago for Fab Nobs Theatre (2017), and performed as a pianist and accompanist throughout Melbourne.
All three were recently seen in the smash hit comedy Trio of Dips: Love Me Tinder at the Butterfly Club.
Electric Loneliness runs from February 11-16 at Melbourne's premier cabaret venue, The Butterfly Club. Take a dive into this haunting deep where only the loneliest of creatures dare to light up the dark. Bookings highly recommended.
