Cabarets traditionally pay tribute to past performance eras. But this month Patrick's Cabaret looks to the future for theatrical inspiration. Participants were asked to draw their ideas from sci-fi movies, literature, art, and technology. The results should be trippy, to say the least. The evening's schedule includes modern dance by Cathy Wright, comedians Bryce Davidson and Laura Kirkeby, short-film screenings by Tony Larson and Hannah Lund, breakdancing with B-Boy J-Sun, and dance from Arturo Miles. Set your digital watch and bring your robot friends.
April 16-17, 8 p.m.; Sun., April 18, 6 p.m., 2010
