This year, as part of the Wexford Literary Festival, the Cáca Milis Cabaret presents a special, literary-themed event live online via ZOOM.
April’s debut online Cáca Milis Cabaret had audience members tuning in from China, Alaska, Spain, the United States and more. In keeping with the current COVID-19 guidelines, Cabaret founder and hostess Helena Mulkerns is delighted to work with the Wexford Literary Festival and the Wexford Arts Centre for a Saturday night evening of literature, music, short film and more.
Our special guests are multi-award winning writer Colm Tóibín and international best-selling author Eoin Colfer – both from Wexford. They head a spectacular line up, including spoken word from Michelle Dooley Mahon, just back from a successful run of The Scourge off Broadway. There will be original music from The Man Whom; some beautiful songs from the fabulous singer Caitríona O’Leary and piano composition from songwriter-composer Josh Johnston. Our comedy tonight comes from much-loved Italian comedian, Carlo Jacucci.
There’ll be sultry tango from two of Ireland’s premier tango dancers, Hernán Catvin and Tara Whelan, and Ciné Sweetcake presents a suitably literary film, Pitch ‘n’ Putt with Beckett and Joyce, written and directed by Donald Clarke. Finally, our Fine Art virtual showcase is Murmuration by artist Nicola Anthony, featuring ‘Fáilte Uí Dhonnchú’, by Cork poet Louis de Paor.
Book your place from the Wexford Arts Centre website to receive your ZOOM event link and password, and your Cabaret Playbill. Then, on Saturday, log in to the event and sit back with your computer, iPAD or phone to enjoy an intimate, eclectic evening of the arts in a vaudevillian format with a dedicated audience.
All you pay for your seat is the subsidised admission fee of €5, which supports both the artists and the literary festival itself. See you there!
