Resistance Cabaret by UMO Ensemble (2018 Fury Factory Festival)
UMO Resistance Cabaret asks the questions of What does resistance look like? How do we resist? What is irresistible? UMO and a stellar group of guest artists from both Seattle and San Francisco featuring new buffoons, ladies in white, aerialists, musicians, singers, dancers, burlesque artists and more will explore and explode these questions, with the vital help of the audience. Presidential addresses, suffrage speeches, found text and comic improvisation meld together in a show unlike anything else. Artists include UMO Ensemble members Elizabeth Klob, Maria Glanz, Lyam White, Janet McAlpin and David Godsey, along with guest artists Lynelle Sjoberg, Jesse Belle Jones and more to be revealed including some of San Franciscos favorite musicians and performers.
In the past twenty years, UMO Ensemble has become known as one of the most innovative and compelling performance companies based in the Pacific Northwest. UMO Ensemble has made over 24 mind-blowingly gorgeous pieces of physical theatre that have been performed in theaters, at festivals, and in schools throughout the Northwest, the United States, Canada, and Europe. UMO recently premiered its newest work, FALLING AWAKE (a fugue state) at Seattles ACT Theatre Bullitt Cabaret space, after selling out a summer 2017 run of Resistance Cabaret there.
