Bearded Ladies Cabaret Daily Schedule

Weimar era cabaret composer Friedrich Hollaender defined cabaret in the following way:

“Under the cover of an evening’s relaxing entertainment, cabaret, like nothing else, suddenly dispenses a poison cookie. Suggestively administered and hastily swallowed, its effect reaches far beyond the harmless evening to make otherwise placid blood boil and inspire a sluggish brain to think.”

The Bearded Ladies Cabaret have used this definition as their guideline in curating a selection of local and international artists to present at The Performance Arcade 2020. Each has a different recipe for their poison cookie. Some are more poison, and some are more cookie, but all exemplify the unique duality that cabaret offers as a space and a performance mode that allows performers and audience to engage in silly dialogue about important things.

All small bite performances are free and 45 minutes featuring one performer with a host.

Bar and seating available.

The Bearded Ladies brings artists from Mexico City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Wellington, and Christchurch together for this international exploration of cabaret.

Curated and Directed by John Jarboe

Musical Direction by Heath Allen

Conceived by John Jarboe and Sally Ollove
