Lola: the life of Lola Montez told the true story of the infamous 19th century Spanish dancer who stormed her way through life on a tumultuous journey of seduction, sorrow and success. An actress and courtesan, a revolutionary and adventuress; she was a breaker of hearts and the toppler of a kingdom.
Fusing theatre, dance and live music from renowned flamenco guitarist Ricardo Garcia, this was a “racy, pacey and inventive chamber-sized physical theatre production based on this extraordinary woman’s life.” – The Times
“This is a real-life picaresque romp through the courts and theatres of nineteenth-century Europe”. – Time Out
“Inventive and imaginative.” – Liverpool Daily Post
“Trestle’s choice of lead – Georgina Roberts – was nothing short of genius. Roberts brought laughs thick and fast and the characters deep vulnerability always brimmed close to the surface.” - Irish Post
Lola: the life of Lola Montez was a collaboration with Barcelona based dance company Increpación Danza.
