CabarABLE is Patrick's Cabaret's annual show featuring artists with disabilities, and 2017 will mark the fourth year we will have hosted this event. Previous years' themes included "Love," "Work," and "Rights/Responsibilities." This year's show is all about embracing the weird and awkward moments of our disabilities and in our lives. How do we understand being weird as a good thing? How can we create a more inclusive world?
Named for the practice of intentionally setting fire to a prairie to promote new growth, Controlled Burn is a cabaret mini-festival featuring "queer performance for a world on fire." An intersectional space for queer performers, especially artists of color and with disabilities. Curated by three fiercely talented queer artists of color, this special three-night event will feature 18 acts, with a different line-up each evening.
Co-Curated and Hosted by Nicole M. Smith, Rosa Garcia, and Dua Saleh
Following last year’s successful first run of “My Horrifying Holiday,” which featured performers lambasting the discomfort of the holiday season, in 2017 Patrick’s Cabaret has handed over the keys to the radical queer curator team Baby Patê, made up of self-described “depraved BFFs” gelli spinelli and Christian Balden have invited performers to put their horrifying holiday to rest, and invent and explore a unique holiday through performance.
Pangea World Theater and Patrick's Cabaret invite Lake Street businesses, organizations, and residents to join us for the upcoming Lake Street Cultural Connect. These gatherings will be 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 Steet as a vibrant cultural and artistic corridor.
Conversation will center voices of artists though allies are welcome!
