Adelaide Cabaret Festival is going digital with a curated collection of bite-sized clips from artists who were set to feature in the 2020 program.
Adelaide Cabaret Festival 2020: Bite-Sized & Home Delivered will highlight cabaret favourites sharing pithy posts – stories, snippets and songs recorded whilst they’ve been in isolation and responding to the classic line from Life Is A Cabaret: ‘What Good Is Sitting Alone In Your Room?’
Cabaret devotees can tune in on social media from June 5-20, where video memories will be posted, including photos from the cabaret archives as we tip our bowler hats to 20 years of Adelaide Festival Centre’s Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
Adelaide Cabaret Festival Artistic Director Julia Zemiro said while audiences could not meet in person this year, she was looking forward to celebrating the spirit of South Australia’s favourite winter event: “Everything we love about cabaret and performance is that feeling of real people around you – sharing something, laughing, singing, crying, clapping, dancing, chatting.
“While there is no way we could re-create the amazing program the team and I had put together this year, we didn’t want to leave an empty space.
“So, this June we will be joining you at home on what will be the 20th Anniversary of Adelaide Cabaret Festival – an incredible achievement!
“We hope you are entertained and find laughter and playful moments through our online platform, so grab a glass of champagne, pop on some sparkles and heels, and enjoy cabaret on your couch.”
Tune in for bite-sized cabaret from 6pm Friday, June 5 on Adelaide Cabaret Festival’s Facebook: www.facebook.com/adelaidecabaretfestival
Clips will be posted from June 5-7 and then at 6pm every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until June 20.
