Even in these uncertain times, it was impossible to imagine a 10th edition of Phénomena without a DADA Cabaret. More than that, we wanted to feature the leading artists who have left their mark on the colourful event that has been part of the festival’s DNA since its creation—but these artists had to be available. Lucky for us, they answered the call. We are delighted to offer the first-ever Pandemic DADA Cabaret! Naturally, seating capacity will be limited due to public health regulations and there will be certain rules to observe. But because we love our audiences and are dying to entertain you, there will be two performances. We are counting on you to “transgress the rules using intelligence and imagination.” We welcome unusual masks and extravagant costumes. We’ve all been cooped up in sweatpants for the past 18 months—now is the time to get your act together and shine!
