Operating within their own eccentric definitions, The Tiger Lillies are recognised as one of the foremost avant-garde bands in the world and the Godfathers of alternative cabaret. For this new performance, they transformed British First World War poetry — by the likes of Arthur West, John McCrae, Noel Hodgson and Wilfred Owen — into a haunting, angry, lyrical set of songs. The result was a startling mixture of opera, gypsy song, Left Bank Paris and black humour.

Co-commissioned by 14-18-NOW, LIFT and Maison de la Musique de Nanterre (FR). Presented with Battersea Arts Centre. A House on Fire project, supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union in partnership with the British Council.
