ON TOUR » A POWER BALLAD
Co-created and performed by Mariana Tengner Barros and the choreographer and dancer Mark Tompkins, A POWER BALLAD is all about a duet for two decadent and eccentric showbiz characters dealing with the emptiness of post-fame, the issues of becoming old and obsessed with making a comeback. One of the main inspirations for this work is Tempest Storm, the oldest (86!), active, burlesque star alive - an amazing woman who defies convention and time. A Power Ballad builds itself around the dialectics of power, the dynamics of illusion and disillusion, winning and losing, ageing and survival.
