Award winning singer and actress Camille O’Sullivan brings her new show The Carny Dream to Leeds City Varieties on March 12th.
The French-Irish songstress is one of the country’s most celebrated artists and is taking her unique and enchanting performances on tour in the spring of 2017.
Camille O’Sullivan is one of Ireland’s most exciting performers who enjoys a formidable international reputation for her dramatic interpretations of the narrative songs of Nick Cave, Brel, Waits, Bowie, Radiohead and more. As much a storyteller as a singer, chameleon-like on stage, her performances are sometimes heartrending, occasionally mischievous but always a spine-tingling, exhilarating carousel ride. With her voice ranging from emotive rock to vulnerable whisper, Camille is fierce, playful and totally mesmerizing, transforming each song she interprets into a gripping theatrical experience. In this new show she has been inspired by the strange, magical, dark and light world of Circus and dreams, asking herself ‘where are you now and what did you dream?’
Camille has performed to audiences at London’s O2, Sydney Opera House and Royal Festival Hall. She returned to London’s Roundhouse Theatre last year performing her show to a sold out crowd.
She has won numerous awards and garnered attention with a scene stealing performance on BBC Two’s Later…with Jools Holland (which lead her to support him at Royal Albert Hall). Camille was also chosen by Yoko One to perform John Lennon’s Double Fantasy alongside Patti Smith and Siouxsie Sioux at Meltdown 2014.
