New original music, spoken word, short film, classic cabaret, and circus arts: it’s all at The Cáca Milis Cabaret, Friday, 16 March next at 9pm in Upstairs@Arthur’s, 28 Thomas Street.

This singular evening of the arts was set up by Helena Mulkerns at The Wexford Arts Centre in 2009, and has presented over 400 artistes since then. The Dublin cabarets will take place in the retro atmosphere of Upstairs@Arthur’s, nestled in an historic building, between Vicar Street and Guinness’s. The full bar and candle-lit table seating creates the perfect nook for our post-modern vaudeville, and the line-up will not disappoint!

As usual, there’s classic cabaret songs from your Hostess Helena Mulkerns, irreverently accompanied by popular Dublin Pianoman and musical director, Josh Johnston.

The guests are, each and every one, worth a visit the visit alone:  in spoken word, there’ll be passionate performance from the inimitable Nicole Rourke (author, The Suitcase Milonguera), as well as poetry from Welsh poet, Anthony Kendrew.

Chanteuse extraordinaire this month is the amazing Miss Truly DiVine: torch singer, Bugle Babe, comedienne and vedette of the Dublin Burlesque scene – with her blend of sass and sensuality.

There’ll be longtime cabaret favourite Pearce McGloughlin, whose lush, haunting music will win you over completely (Hot Press called him, “A quiet triumph”). Newcomer Cathal Duffy will deliver a debut performance of his own composition.

Did somebody whisper Hula Hoop? Look no farther than our stage for Shir Madness (a regular with Gerry Fish and The Cabaret and Burlesque Social Club) and her fine Burlesque.   And this just in: a very special Tango performance in the second half with Nicole Rourke and Argentinian dance-maestro Hernán Catvin – Tom Lehrer will love it (posthumously)!

Our Ciné Sweetcake presentation is the haunting and magical short film, The Girl With The Mechanical Maiden, by award-winning film maker Andrew Legge.

Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to pick up your copy of that commendable tome, Red Lamp Black Piano: The Cáca Milis Anthology, with its unique introduction by Patrick McCabe, and selection of writers and poets who have appeared at the event.

With raffle prizes sponsored by The Dublin Writers Festival and The Irish Film Institute, what’s not to like at the Cáca Milis Dublin Debut Cabaret!

Show starts at 9pm (seated 8:45) Admission is €10 or €8   Food and fine refreshments.   Book ahead through:  cabaret@cacamilis.org or 086-20-20-289
