Poonie's Cabaret goes classical!
Poonie's Cabaret is a fast-paced, unpredictable evening featuring works-in-progress from artists in many different creative realms – dance, music, contact improv, puppetry, performance art, theatre, voguing, freestyle rapping, drag, burlesque, cheerleading, stand-up comedy, and more! This time around we're bringing old school charm to new and experimental works. All your favorite subversive arts set to the classical masters!
Poonie's Cabaret is named after the late great Chicago choreographer, Poonie Dodson, who died of AIDS in the early 90’s. Poonie’s Cabaret welcomes all forms of expression and anything which cannot be defined but can be thoroughly enjoyed.
Curators invited by Links Hall select the works shown from among local Chicago artists and proceeds go to the Dodson / Erley "Coming Out of the Closet" Fund.
