About the Play:

Music for Contortionist is a full-length drama by Morwyn Brebner. A German cabaret artist who has seen better days – at least some of them were better – reminisces. What she doesn't remember, she makes up.

Music for Contortionist is a fascinating glimpse into the world of Valeska Gert – a 1930s German cabaret star and avant-garde performance artist – reminiscing in a New York nightclub. She explains life, love, and art from her own unique perspective. By turns hilarious and moving, Music for Contortionist is a wild ride.

Morwyn Brebner's stunning playwriting debut, Music for Contortionist, was co-produced by the Shaw Festival and the Tarragon Theatre in 2000 and nominated for a Chalmers Award and two Dora Mavor Moore Awards, including Best New Play.
