This cabaret is a fiery, passionate celebration of the power of art as a method to fight for our lives. This is not a new phenomenon, but one found throughout history and inextricable from pride, protest, and reclamation. The performers in Through the Fire: This Cabaret Can Save Your Life – curated by Arts Commons' 2021-22 TD Incubator Fellows and multidisciplinary artists, Jae Sterling and Contra – are living testaments. If it feels like there’s chaos in your brain, your legs can’t move, and your heart is frozen, let their fire warm you.
Recorded live in the Engineered Air Theatre at Arts Commons as part of the 2021-22 season of Arts Commons Presents, Through the Fire: This Cabaret Can Save Your Life features performances by DeVery Bess, Rufi Oswaldo, Natalia Chai, and Silvia Temis, featuring visuals by Bryan Faubert.
