Acclaimed writer Cathy Rentzenbrink and jazz and cabaret singer Kate Dimbleby will be navigating the fear of the unknown in front of an audience at this year’s Jersey Festival of Words, where they will be performing their new show Out of Our Comfort Zone.
The show will see singer Kate Dimbleby, daughter of broadcaster David Dimbleby and described by BBC Radio 6 Music as a singer ‘absolutely at the top of her game’ and possessing ‘stunning vocal virtuosity’, swapping skillsets with Sunday Times bestseller Rentzenbrink as the two women conquer their fear of doing something they’ve never done before, live on stage.
The duos new stage show explores what it means to find and own your voice, for themselves and everyone else, and promises ‘an uplifting evening of songs and stories with lots of laughter and possibly a few tears’. During the show the two women will also be share some creative tools to navigate the ups and downs of modern life.
The show, which will take place at Jersey Opera House on Friday 27th September, replaces Sir Michael Parkinson’s event after the veteran broadcaster was forced to cancel his visit to the island due to a minor medical matter earlier this month.
‘We’re immensely grateful to Cathy and Kate for agreeing to bring their new show to the festival at such short notice,’ said Festival chairman Jennifer Bridge. ‘Both are masters of their crafts and we look forward to what promises to be an inspiring evening.’
Cathy Rentzenbrink, who first appeared at Jersey Festival of Words 2016 to discuss her memoir The Last Act of Love, was recently named as festival patron, and will also be chairing several events of the festival weekend, where she will be interviewing Graham Farmelo, Leah Hazard and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.
