Patrick's Cabaret launches an innovative and celebratory 30th year of programming with its 2016 Spring Season. For 30 years, Patrick's Cabaret has been and continues to be an artistic home and point of intersection for emerging and established artists working on the edge of culture, whether because of radical content, experimental form, or cultural marginality. We support artists in their growth and development by encouraging them to try new things, take risks, and present works-in-progress.
We exist in a highly divisive climate that seeks to eradicate radical art, joy and love, and yet we continue to come together to create, carve space and birth change. We invite you to reject the scarcity mentality, so that we may open our eyes to the abundance of resources, teachers and community we have flourishing around us. This is the tipping point.
Pangea World Theater, Patrick's Cabaret and In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre invite Lake Street businesses, organizations, and residents to join us for the upcoming Lake Street Cultural Connect. These gatherings are held every other month with the goal of bringing stakeholders and community members of Lake Street around the same table to engage in conversation about the future and sustainability of Lake Street as a vibrant cultural and artistic corridor.
Join Patrick's Cabaret's network on Thursday, April 26th from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Pangea World Theater Studio to continue the conversation. Our third Community Roundtable will build on our March discussion to imagine and create the future we want for artists in the Twin Cities, particularly artists of color, artists with disabilities, and artists with queer and trans identities.
As Patrick’s Cabaret approaches our sunset, we are looking to our community of artists and program participants to understand the long-term effects of working with us. Because of this, we’ve developed a series of sunset surveys, each geared toward the experience of particular programs.
