Singin' In The Pain

Cabaret • Burlesque

The award-winning "Disability Cabaret" is back with a vengeance. Our disabilibabes and chronic cuties have even more to say in the wake of a global pandemic, exploring our lived experiences with disability and chronic illness. A night of community and catharsis for people of all walks of life. Laugh, cry, but most importantly, listen.

"This was not just a cabaret – this was activism as an art form, providing the most powerful performances I have seen yet this Fringe season." Sarah Jane Justice, 2019

Talking disability theory, personal anecdotes, and pet peeves, Diana Divine presents a bevy of burlesque & cabaret stars ready to share in this soapbox-style performance.
