Orchestrated around the dual goals of promoting diverse representation onstage and conjuring a communal atmosphere for the audience, performance collective Rathaus, Inc. has managed to reinvigorate the variety show. While the specifics of each Cabarave event differ (often being modeled around a topical theme), visitors can expect to be thrilled by an exhilarating exhibition of aerialists, acrobats, dancers, and frenetic flow artists. The production evolves from sequence to sequence accompanied by the live backing of vocalists and musicians, bringing a fluidity to the cabaret-style format. In between performances, audiences are welcome to mingle, observe painters at work, or just groove to the rhythms of a live DJ. Fusing theatrical experience with a cocktail party, Cabarave aims to have audiences feeling less like they’ve just witnessed a show and more like they’ve just left an unforgettable party.
