Merging theatre and music cabaret creates an atmosphere of exploration, energy, politics, stories, characters, burlesque, songs, and silliness.

We will provide a stage, lighting and sound, an onstage piano and limited radio mics, the rest is up to you to bring creativity and uniquity to the stage!

Just remember it can be only 10 minutes!
