A Modest Exhibit
June 24, 2011
Reprising his 2011 Adelaide Fringe cabaret debut, Charles Sanders takes us on a journey of ‘a boy’ through the songs and muses that shaped him.
This version is chiseled down to its very essence in an intimate venue that brings the audience closer to him. It delivers an honest story and shines in its simplicity.
A boy’s love for musical theatre, his parents’ devastating divorce, putting up a wall, numbing himself with drugs – each of these stories are told with Sanders’ all-consuming zeal for his art. Visually striking, Sanders engages the audience with his soulful eyes and emotionally charged vocals that speak a thousand words.
His rendition of “I’m Not Afraid of Anything” is raw and powerful in its vulnerability as it takes his passionate performance to new heights. The closing number “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” suggests that this is an open-ended tale that will continue to unfold as Sanders grows as a cabaret artist and keeps on tapping into his unlimited potential.
Sanders gives an exquisitely nuanced performance in this return season and takes the show to a new level.
