Patrick's Cabaret again breaks its own mold, performing outdoors at locations throughout Minneapolis's West Bank neighborhood as part of the all-night festival Northern Spark. During the festival, which runs from sun-down on June 10th to sun-up on June 11th, Patrick's Cabaret will invite audiences to wander through a guided tour of the West Bank neighborhood with site-specific performances that consider how climate change will impact (and already have impacted) the most marginalized members of Earth's community.
Artists take aim at "the most wonderful time of the year" with this scathing, comedic anti-holiday event that might make even Scrooge cringe and the Grinch shudder. Bring the whole family so you can spend 2 hours not having to talk to one another!
Featuring: Paul Nemeth Akiko Ostlund Hector Chavarria aka "The Big Gay Mexican" Alyssa Perau Elliot Kafiya Ahmed
As an artist, you are a political being. Your audience is a political body. Your work is political work. Patrick’s Cabaret invites artists to step up to the SOAPBOX Open Mic and claim space for art as a site of political power. Each open mic will include two featured artists presenting politically-oriented work, plus opportunities for 7 people to spend up to 7 minutes each onstage expressing hopes, dreams, fears, and calls to action in this tumultuous political season.
Learn how to fight the system--by doing your taxes!
Let's be real: Tax law is written, on the whole, to uphold the white patriarchy, and its benefits are overwhelmingly concentrated away from marginalized communities. Artists and other creative professionals, in particular, are underserved by this system. Until we can radically remake our economy, we've got to help each other navigate it.
