With fearless exploration of eroticism and Bacchanalia yet confronting themes of resistance and social justice, Poetry Cabaret is known for blending spoken-word poetry with music, dance, and other artforms to create experimental poetry readings in avant cabaret style. This edition features a new twist—inspired by recent travels and the innovative spirit of Fringe art, poets will perform cipher style with live music, dance, and the chance element of improvisation.

“This is a creative genius waving his middle finger at the institution. This is subversiveness defined. This is welcome to the family or get the fuck out.” —Ashvegas
