New Territories: Cabaret Futura

Fri 11 Mar 2011 | 6pm-1am | £12/£9

“It was in New York that I really started to get ideas for Cabaret Futura. At that time there were some very exciting Performance Art spaces in Manhattan. Places like The Kitchen, PS1, The Artists’ Space and Franklin Furnace would have regular events featuring artists like Laurie Anderson, Karole Armitage, Rhys Chatham and the original stand-up/monologist Eric Bogosian. It gave me the idea to present this kind of performance work in a mutated European cabaret environment and, in 1980, Cabaret Futura was born in Soho, London.”
R. Strange

Influenced by a trip he made to New York in the ‘70s, Richard Strange has been organising the hugely successful Cabaret Futura events in London for many years. In keeping with this strand of programming for New Territories 2011, he now curates a special Cabaret Futura event for Glasgow.

An interactive installation in which two strangers are led to bed, to listen to stories of love and heartbreak in the pillows.
