Jazmin & Monsieur P
Jazmin Baret (Jazmin & Saphar, Le Cabaret des Filles de Joie- Paris, I Love Burlesk- Geneva) & Monsieur P (Ben Palumbo Ensemble, Fête de la Musique Switzerland, The One Year Only Cabaret, Lausanne) intrigue and delight in delicious cabaret acts of song, tap dance and espionage…. with a bite of Burlesque!
A mysterious figure. A cabaret artist. A dramatic climax …and a sinister twist !
With its debut in solo form at the Paris Burlesque Festival 2010, Espion Heart was developed with Monsiuer P in Sydney summer 2011 and performed at Slide, A Velvet Affair, The Victoria Room and private functions around Sydney. An audience delight!
THE LATE DATE
Ms B arrives at a classy restaurant in glamorous attire for a hot date…. But where is her Monsieur? And what will she get up to after the nerves frizzle?
An hilarious voyage through the emotions of anticipation, fear, anger, lust and hilarity, The Late Date tells its tale via theatre, tap dance, song, comedy… and a twist of Tango.
The piece premiered with great success at The Art Lounge and The Victoria Rooms in Sydney, Australia in April 2011 and will tour Europe in October 2011. (Photo top Stephane Marti; left- Yazmin Boland)
STANDARDS IN TIME
A singing and tap dancing dynamic duo, Jazmin and Monsieur P perform Jazz, Cabaret and Tango standards with musicians or a capella in a range of environments(restaurants, bars, cabarets and events) and format (short spots, sets, concerts). Theatrical, entertaining and mood setting!
Ben Palumbo’s background as a competitive gymnast and professional acrobat combine with a lyric baritone voice, give him a unique base of performance skills to draw on.
His performance career includes the Sydney Olympics Arts Festival with Physical Theatre company Legs on the Wall (Sydney Australia) and Rock n Roll Circus (Brisbane Australia) as well as appearing in the blockbuster film Moulin Rouge as a tumbling stunt double.
His background in classical singing stems from family influences (his parents being conservatorium trained in Double bass and Guitar) and frequently performs with them. Ben also has performed in Australia and overseas in various guises, from jazz, cabaret to classical and more! He also possesses a unique falsetto voice soaring to heights that would match many sopranos!
