UMO: The Resistance Cabaret
UMO Cabaret & Benefit One Night Only!
Out of the depths of Winter, UMO emerges ready for action: Please join us for an evening of artful Resistance!
The world has changed from what we once knew and we know that art must change, too. When UMO joined in the Seattle Womens March in January, we were inspired in deep and powerful ways.
The results of that inspiration: UMO is leaning into new art with a fierce and fiery commitment new material is springing up and a brand-new set of buffoons is being born. We invite you to enjoy a fresh new crop of UMO art - all bred out of RESISTANCE. Which some may say is futile -
But we know the truth. Resistance is FERTILE.
Please, join us and support UMO while enjoying new art and antics as well as the fine food of The Hardware Store on Vashon. Because we want this event to be accessible, tickets for the Cabaret are just $20. Guests can purchase dinner and drinks separately (and we highly encourage you do its magnificent!)
Our musical heart-throbs The Love Markets will be joining us, and we will have a raffle and other artful surprises - all to benefit the art of UMO and the UMO School of Physical Arts.
Seating is LIMITED - Get your tickets early.
UMO Ensemble is one of the most innovative, compelling and critically acclaimed not-for-profit performance companies based in the Pacific Northwest. In the past 24 years, UMO has made over twenty mind-blowingly gorgeous, original pieces of physical theatre. The UMO School of Physical Arts in is its 10th year of providing instruction in circus and aerial arts, parkour, and more to Vashon youth.
THE LOVE MARKETS are spinners of slinky tangos and whiskey waltzes, seekers of love and revolution in a world in which everything is for sale Led by songwriter Angie Louise and inspired by the artists of 1920s Berlin, The Love Markets inject high-stakes edge and cabaret decadence into their modern mashup of bordello brass, political bite, sinuous rhythm and funky bass. With roots deep in the Seattle arts scene, THE LOVE MARKETS have been gracing and disgracing stages since 2009. "Irresistible... Sexy... Satirical... The band's intoxicating theatricality sets whole audiences to dreaming of running away with this deliciously dark carnival." - Seattle Magazine
