She’s been described as an “enigma”, an eccentric-original-rarity that polarized audiences and sent the pop world into a spin.
Since the release of her self-written number-one hit, 'Wuthering Heights' Kate Bush became the banshee-like voice of individuality.
Following its debut at Melbourne's Butterfly Club, "This Woman's Work - The Songs of Kate Bush" is back bigger and bushier than ever!
As part of Melbourne Fringe Festival, self-professed Kate Bush enthusiast, Kate Finkelstein will lead you through of night of singing, dancing and ‘Cloudbusting’. This time she'll be joined by a full band featuring Australian Rock Royalty Brett Garsed, Gerry Pantazis, Richard Panaia and Lee Bradshaw.
'This Woman's Work' embraces the beautiful mystery that is Kate Bush, including hits songs: Wuthering Heights, The Man With The Child In His Eyes, Cloudbusting, Running Up That Hill, Love And Anger and many more.
A night of musical exuberance in honour of an artist who showed the world what a woman can do with a dream, a piano and a pair of red shoes.
WARNING! THIS SHOW MAY INSPIRE UNINHIBITED BOUTS OF EXPRESSIVE DANCING.
"At the end of the day ’This Woman’s Work’ by Kate Finklestein is a show built on honesty... just one woman on piano... no backing tapes or trickery (save for a string of fairy lights draped over the piano... ) and it’s no-nonsense approach brought us as close to the essence of Kate Bush as any fan could possibly dream of... here we were hearing complex songs like ‘Cloudbusting’, ‘Moments Of Pleasure’ and ‘Wuthering Heights’ in their most distilled unfettered form... on the piano as Kate would have originally conceived them... and for any fan, it just doesn’t get any purer... And at times I confess I was so moved by the honesty of her performance that it brought tears."
