TDM Fall 2019 Productions
QUEER CABARET, Dec 5-7, 2019
From the Dadaist’s Cabaret Voltaire, to the jazz cabarets of Harlem, to the downtown NYC queer scene, cabaret as a non-traditional theatrical form is often associated with social and artistic subcultures. In this practice-based course, students will explore the history of cabaret and its relationships to queer art practice, politics, and community. Over the course of the semester, each student will create a cabaret act for performance. This work will ultimately become the content for TDM’s fall production.
About TDM Fall Production
In her Production Studio course, Tropicana will guide students in the collaborative creation of TDM’s Fall Production, a fully produced evening of cabaret staged in the historic 1904 Agassiz theater, and costumed by Machine Dazzle. Students enrolled in the course will automatically be the performers and apprentices creating the show. There will be no auditions. If you are in the class, you are working on the show. Formal rehearsals begin November 10. Performances take place December 5-7.
