Curated and hosted by Nicky Paraiso

In the spirit of rebirth, renewal, and the resurrection of the spirit, curator and emcee Nicky Paraiso addresses the current political and social climate in a serious attempt to investigate and celebrate the origins of cabaret. Although the 19th century French definition referred to any business serving liquor, a cabaret in the early 20th century was an informal saloon or safe place, as it were, where poets, artists and composers could share ideas and compositions, present new works-in-progress and decry the political ills of the day. Exemplary writers, including David Cale, Jessica Hagedorn, Edgar Oliver and Laurie Stone are invited to respond to recent life-changing and transformational events while songs continue to be sung with entertaining consequence.
