Angielskie media okrzyknęły „Rime of the Ancient Marimer” The Tiger Lillies mianem „PUNKOWEGO KABARETU”.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, angielski poeta, wraz z Williamem Wordsworthem uznawany jest za prekursora romantyzmu w literaturze brytyjskiej. Jego twórczością inspirowali się zarówno Iron Maiden jak the Pogues. Tym razem jego epokowe dzieło, jakim bez wątpienia jest poemat „Rime of the Ancient Marimer/Rymy o sędziwym marynarzu” posłużył szalonym anglikom z The Tiger Lillies za kanwę ich muzycznego spektaklu.
Któż lepiej nadaje się do przełożenia „rozkołysanych” rymów Coleridge’a na język muzyki jak nie The Tiger Lillies?
Specyficzne poczucie humoru i sceniczny wdzięk sprawiły, że w muzyce i spektaklach The Tiger Lillies zakochał się m.in. legendarny komediowy reżyser Mel Brooks, ale także twórca ‘the Simpsons’ - Matt Groening i członkowie kultowego kwartetu skrzypcowego Kronos Quartet.

„Rime of the Ancient Marimer/Rymy o sędziwym marynarzu” to prawdziwe arcydzieło. Zamysł i pierwsze strofy tego poematu powstały 13 listopada 1797 roku na spacerze z rodzeństwem Wordsworthów. Ballada opowiada o tajemniczych przygodach w czasie podróży dookoła świata, opowiedzianych przez starego żeglarza gościom przyjęcia weselnego. Okręt, którym płynął marynarz, utknął między lodowymi górami a na niebie pojawił się albatros i wskazał załodze drogę ratunku. Wtedy żeglarz, bez wyraźnego powodu, zastrzelił ptaka i za tę zbrodnię ukarany został serią przerażających doświadczeń.

Tym razem członkom zespołu towarzysza zaproszeni goście:
Myles Boisen na gitarze i banjo, Kim Boekbinder na Toy Piano, Seth Ford-Young - Bowed Bass, Alex Kelly na wilonczeli, Matthias Bossi - Pump Organ, Chris Grady na trąbce, Philip Greenlief na saksofonie tenorowym i śpiewające Aurora Josephson, Carla Kihlstedt, Laurie Amat. Do tego grupa śpiewaków i tancerzy: Freddi Price, Kirk Lomard, Max Baloian, Larry Henderson, Mark Growden, Morgan Guberman.

'A haunting evening's entertainment full of ethereal grace.' **** (The Daily Telegraph)

'It's not surprising that their cult following is worldwide – a Tiger Lillies gig is a journey into wild emotion which passes right through melodrama and out the other side into bizarre beauty' (London Evening Standard)

'The show is a glorious visual cabinet of curiosities that enthrals on all its surreal fronts, a version of madness that matches the lonely voice of Coleridge's mariner with the sadness of Jacques' lyrics and music... Unforgettable.' (The Arts Desk)

Editor's info:
"It is an ancient Mariner,
And he stoppeth one of three.
`By thy long grey beard and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stopp'st thou me?"

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge is an epic poem and now also an epic 25 track album/multimedia project from The Tiger Lillies.

Recording commenced in 2008 in Oakland, California with Myles Boisen (who also worked with us on Grammy nominated The Gorey End) and continued for 3 more years. Illustrious musicians were conscripted in to play, shout and stomp on the recordings, all for dry bread and rum. Artist Mark Holthusen foolishly agreed to join the crew and set to work producing images, a video and finally a monstrous multimedia film on 2 screens that will accompany the songs in live performances. The premier of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner will be at La Maison de la Musique, Nanterre, France on 16-18 March 2012.

The new cd has finally arrived in port, telling the tale of the Mariner and his fall from grace, journey to hell and back and his final redemption.

Double CD in gatefold digipack cover plus 12 page booklet with lyrics and photos.

This is Cabaret reviews The Tiger Lillies’ The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner

The operatic, gypsy, folk, punk-rock cabaret trio, The Tiger Lillies, return to London with a sold-out 90 minute musical adaptation of The Rime of The Ancient Mariner.

The Tiger Lillies are no strangers to the theatre. Having previously created their own version of Hamlet and staged their award-winning, international cult musical theatre production, Shockheaded Peter, they are a band that have proved their ability to mix and recreate a wide range of genres and styles.

Now their musical adaptation of the longest major poem, English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of The Ancient Mariner, has made its way to London. The band have collaborated with American visual artist Mark Holthusen to create a show that lingers between a Terry Gilliam-esque baroque film and a music concert. It’s a combination that works very well.

The poem tells the story of a sailor recounting a tale to guests at a wedding. He tells how he, one stormy day, shoots an albatross that he believes has brought the ship and crew bad fortune. The crew are incensed that the Mariner has killed the bird and force him to wear the albatross around his neck as punishment. The show takes us on the Mariner’s journey through calm, sunny seas to icescapes, smoke-breathing monsters, snowstorms and down to the very depths of fiery hell.

Recording for The Rime of The Ancient Mariner commenced in 2008 and lasted for three years. The South Bank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall is a fantastic venue for its London debut. The traditional proscenium arch and sloping audience seats fit the shape and scale of the show perfectly. The band appear behind a screen that covers the whole stage and another screen is hung behind them. Both screens are used to create a multi-layered, 3D effect using images and video projected throughout. Holthusen has created remarkable images from drawings, fabrics, metal objects and videos of real people performing as the captain and crew. These actors all wear masks, a common theme in The Tiger Lillies’ work.

The screens are an engaging and innovative way to tell the story. The tale is communicated effectively through the use of the music and lyrics but the way that Jacques uses his voice, creating rasping, throaty noises or eerie, high-pitched wailing, can occasionally obscure words and phrases. The addition of these, frankly glorious, visual effects adds an extra element to the storytelling.

Beginning with the lewd crew drinking from barrels and generally making merry, the narrative moves through smutty retainer rogering with Cabin Boy, the demise of the crew in Death Ship 1 & 2 and the eventual freedom of the Mariner from the albatross in Dead Men’s Ship. Each song tells a little more of the story, interspersed with lead singer Martyn Jacques quoting parts of the poem. The performance finishes with a planned encore of Living Hell which has the backdrop, rather incongruously, of a disco ball. The song was brilliant and apt but the disco ball was out of place and confusing.

As ever, the Tiger Lillies are comprised of Jacques on accordion and heartbreakingly poignant piano duty, Adrian Stout playing double bass, musical saw and theremin and Mike Pickering on drums and expertly used percussion. Knife sharpening, handfuls of empty nut shells and hand-clapping are a few of the atmospheric additions from Pickering that add the final touches to this haunting piece of musical theatre.

Lewd, intelligent, bawdy, thoughtful, immersive and creepy as ever, the Tiger Lilies have once again proved why they are so important to the contemporary performing arts scene and why cabaret most certainly needs these nudges out of the norm and over the edge of decency. See a live clip of the show here.
