In partnership with FringeArts, Opera Philadelphia and the Office of LGBT Affairs
The Bearded Ladies Cabaret returns for our third annual LATE NIGHT SNACKS, the unapologetically queer performance art pop up that makes everyone a little bit gay. Featuring a wardrobe’s worth of artists from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between, LATE NIGHT SNACKS is here to convert you. Whether you come once, come every night, or just stop by on your way to the corner store, you’ll leave with a mouthful of rainbows and glitter on your lips. Part subversion therapy, part luxury walk-in, LATE NIGHT SNACKS invites you to join us in The Closet, our custom-built cabaret, for seven minutes in queer heaven.
A night of beauty, dance, music, and vulnerability. We are thrilled to have Mexican musician Tareke Ortiz back on the Bearded Ladies stage for the first time since 2019. Madhusmita Bora is an award-winning Assamese American dancer, teacher, writer, filmmaker and cultural producer. As an immigrant living in diaspora, Madhu’s practice actively connects her to her roots and her self. Black, Trans Spectrum, Queer choreographer, dancer, and movement guide dani tirrell (Seattle, WA & Washington DC) will share an exploration of dresses, gender and lipstick!
