Subculture Cabaret: 2 Nights, 2 Roofs

Margo van de Linde


Within the frame of Veem 10X10 on ‘discourse’ we invite Subculture Cabaret, an evening hosted and organised by Margo van de Linde. Perhaps not your typical ‘discursive’ event, there will be no panel discussion or lecture but rather Subculture Cabaret brings together a vibrant evening where the stage listens back to the audience; assembling an array of performances (and audiences) from Amsterdam’s diverging performance scenes under one roof.

We may use different languages… But we all have a story to tell. Subculture Cabaret sees how anyone – from poet to contemporary dancer, storyteller to drag artist – gives shape to that story using their own language and mode of expression. You may experience something unusual. If so, we are pleased. 

Subculture Cabaret travels from it’s usual home at Mezrab on Friday night to Veem the following Saturday- creating a full weekend! Join to see Subculture Cabaret’s first outing into new territory and as they explore what a theatre has that they can play with. Supported by live band The Knights of Love, Margo draws inspiration from what is shared to freestyle-host your night together. Acts will be announced on the night itself.
