The core program at Patrick’s Cabaret consists of our weekend of cabarets, each show generally consisting of six acts, with a mix of experience levels and artistic disciplines. Each cabaret is carefully curated to offer a diverse range of performances, while at the same time striving to maintain accessibility for the artists we target with our outreach.
Shadow Cabaret ~ December 2006
We put it all on stage ~ video, dance, performance art, comedy, theater, spoken word ~ you name it, it happens here.
There is no typical evening at the Cabaret. Some weekends are guest curated, some are curated by Performing Arts Curator Scott Artley. Some weekends are an eclectic mix of performers, while others are based on a particular theme. Generally, there are no auditions ~ artists are either invited to perform, or they request an opportunity, and each performer usually has fifteen minutes.
Patrick's Cabaret Summer Cinema
December Cabaret ~ December 2005
This series features four free different films presented with Trylon Microcinema. The evenings start with parking lot entertainment featuring local Minneapolis artists and the Magic Bus Café. Movies are in the indoor theater space.
High School Cabaret Program
Patrick's Cabaret opens its doors to local High Schools and Youth Arts programs, and invites young people to take over. For our 2008 - 2009 season, we are presenting Roosevelt High School, Southwest High School, Young Dance, and Main Street School of the Performing Arts.
