We are very pleased to announce that we are performing a special show at Princeton University on May 4th 2017.
As well as performing a set featuring tracks from the new album ‘The Imperfect Sea’ and some old favourites, the Penguins will be collaborating with Princeton University Ballet to premiere of a very exciting project, a 21st century version of Cole Porter’s “Within the Quota,” a pantomime-ballet first created as a response to the United States’ immigration quotas of 1921.
This modern production, allegorized as an act of resistance to the policies of the current Trump administration, will be performed in Richardson Auditorium by the students of the Princeton University Ballet. Porter’s music will be performed live in an arrangement prepared by Simon Morrison and Penguin Cafe, whose members are traveling to Princeton for the show.
In addition, grab your tickets quick for our New York show at the iconic LE POISSON ROUGE on 5th May, celebrating the release of the new album ‘The Imperfect Sea’.
