Collaborative Artists' Production of A SONG GOES ROUND THE WORLD To Open At Upstairs At The Gatehouse

Today Collaborative Artists announces that, following a successful run at St James' Studio in 2016, its production of A Song Goes Round The World will open at Upstairs at The Gatehouse from 25 April and run until 30 April. From Russian cabaret artist Alexander Vertinsky to Edith Pia?, via the music of the Comedian Harmonists in the early 1930's, Daniel Donskoy will perform German, Yiddish, French and Russian chansons, accompanied by Inga Davis-Rutter and her trio. Donskoy will be joined by a di?erent guest each evening including Jackie Marks, Sarah Naudi, Monique Young.

Whilst Europe was fractured throughout big parts of the 20th century, chansons always spoke the language of the people from all corners of the continent. From life in the poor Parisian faubourgs to Yiddish theatre tales of loss and joy; Songs sung by Russian political prisoners of the Tsar to the wit of German Cabaret. This is an enchanting musical evening ?lled with Europe's eternal melodies.

Today Daniel Donskoy said "In times of recent political upheaval and in times where we seem to be drifting apart culturally, this is a perfect opportunity to come together for an evening of European Music and forget about Trump & Brexit. These performances are a chance to bring Europe together, even if it is just for one evening."
