Cabaret Voltaire

Tickets $25.

Fashion is art and you are the canvas!

The only difference between fashion and art, is that fashion is an art movement…

And the fact is, even art is subject to fashion!

Historically, fashion has rarely been elevated to the same stature as painting, music, sculpture or architecture. But fashion is one of the purest expressions of art because it is art lived on a daily basis. … Fashion is a manifestation of human art and communication.

From pioneering icons of fashion and glamour, to couture houses that modernised haute couture – From the Chanel ‘three piece’ to McQueen’s 10 inch Armadillo shoes.

Welcome to ‘Cabaret Voltaire’ an evening of avante-garde art and performance, inspired by the fashion industry / Aestheticism and the essence of ‘l’art pour l’art’ (art for art’s sake).

This juxtaposition of imagery, dreams and fantasy will be delivered through an explosive night of drag / burlesque / performance art / live art and music!
