Three drag queens take us on a journey that reveals the contradictions and hypocrisies in our society, merging the world of Drag with the theatrical realm of the Variety Show, Cabaret and Physical Theatre.
The title of the show is a nod to the works of Bertold Brecht and Kurt Weill, who were both instrumental in creating a new artistic language, where political and civil protest are combined with the carefree (albeit only at first glance) musical appeal of Cabaret.
Drag shows today, just like cabaret in the past, combine irony and pop culture with satirical stabs at all the prejudices, falsehoods and social impositions that are typical of contemporary society; in particular, when it comes to issues related to gender roles, which are mocked and distorted through the art of drag, to help reveal their true nature as a social construct.
The artistic and expressive force of the art of drag in CABARECHT means the show is able to communicate with a varied and international audience. CABARECHT creates a direct and immediate dialogue with the audience, who will no longer be a mere passive element of the theatrical performance, but will actively intervene in the show itself in order to collectively answer the question: what is it that keeps humanity alive?
