The Guardian meets the LGBT+ performers that are putting on cabaret shows via video chat to cheer each people up through the Covid-19 crisis.
For lots of people involved in the cabaret and drag scene, it can offer an unique sense of community. It can be the highlight of lots of people’s week and help them through tough times. The nature of cabaret and drag is over the top in general. Outrageous outfits, choreographed dance numbers and loud pumping music are all common features of these shows. So how can you still get that same level of excitement and fun at home? Well, these people have come up with an answer…
Dan Glass takes us inside a online group made up of over 1000 cabaret performers who each take it in turn every night to perform a show in their living rooms. The performers come from all over the world and they offer a bit of relief to anyone who’s stuck inside. It’s a lovely idea that shows us how groups are trying to maintain their everyday lives in uncertain times.
