Bremner Duthie' '33(a kabarett)

2 NIGHTS ONLY!
Friday NOVEMBER 30, 8pm-10pm
Saturday DECEMBER 1, 8pm-10pm


Be prepared to have an amazing experience!


In the ruins of a Cabaret theatre, an actor tumbles onto a darkened stage. When the lights come up he finds himself alone. His friends and colleagues have disappeared, arrested by the authorities. Only their glittering, torn costumes remain. In order to escape the same fate and survive, the actor should run and vanish into the night, but an audience has slipped through the broken door. So, in tribute, he uses all his talents to joyously recreate the acts of the missing company. The Funnyman, the Showgirl, the Song and Dance Man and the rest of his troupe spring to life as the actor pays homage to his disappeared friends . '33(a kabarett) features 9 songs from the era, with new arrangements by Bremner's jazz trio.

Performed and written by Bremner, the darkly humorous monodrama is based directly on texts of survivors and oppressors from the 1930's, and on texts from periods of cultural repression up to the present day. It is not just about Germany in 1933. One of the main monologues is a cut-up between a speech by Hitler and a speech on Freedom by one of America's current radical right wing politicians. '33 offers a hopeful and realistic insight into the struggle against censorship and repression. It speaks to the challenge of honoring the memory of the disappeared. It says we must grieve in sorrow, but we can choose to fight back with energy, humor, laughter, and life.

Art Klub, 1941 Arts St., New Orleans

'33 (a kabarett): In the ruins of a Cabaret theatre, an actor tumbles onto a darkened stage. When the lights come up he finds himself alone. His friends and colleagues have disappeared, arrested by the authorities. Only their glittering, torn costumes remain. The actor should run, vanish into the night, but an audience has slipped through the broken doors. So, in tribute, he uses all his talents to joyously recreate the acts of the missing company. '33(a kabarett) features 9 songs from the era. Directed by Dave Dawson, who created an expressionistic world of extravagant, generous, visceral gestures.

'33(a kabarett) is about choosing to speak up in the face of censorship and oppression. '33 says we grieve in sorrow, but can fight back with energy, laughter and life.

'33(a kabarett) has been invited to theatre festivals across North America, Europe and Russia. It was recently invited to Armenia to open a Festival commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
