A Belgian pop star moves to London to steal the job of British pop stars. Luckily, austerity is there to stop her. A witty pop-opera about a girl called Nele who turns her life into a big international mess because she wants to be famous on the other side of the English Channel. It's a rags-to-more-rags story showing the magnificent relief of grandiose failures in love, life and a so-called career. Expect theatrical show tunes and profound torch songs, brought by an all-female band meticulously trained to sing with their tongues in their cheeks.
