If raw emotion has a voice, then it is surely Camille O’Sullivan’s.
For the past few years, Camille has bewitched Edinburgh audiences with her intoxicating take on the songs of Brel, Bowie, Cave and others; breathing seductive life into the characters she sings about – from the death row inmate of Cave’s “The Mercy Seat” to the heartbreaking reflections of the woman in Fascinating Aida’s “Look Mummy, No Hands”.
In 2008 and 2009, Camille sent shivers down thousands of spines with her Dark Angel show, featuring her twin trademarks of searing, powerful vocals together with her sexy and sassy cabaret-style mischief.
This year, she returns with Chameleon – a show which will deliver new material to audiences eager to once again spend an intimate evening being moved and entertained by the Queen of the Fringe.
2010 has been a year of successes for this Irish-born star, with sell-out appearances at London’s West End, The Royal Albert Hall and Sydney Opera House, as well as a 6-week UK tour.
Appearing for a four-week run at the Assembly George Street, tickets are already being snapped up by the faithful – and are likely to disappear even quicker once word spreads of Camille’s mesmerising presence and captivating performance.
So, if you’re in the dark about which shows to catch at Edinburgh this year, let the torch songs of Chameleon light your way.
