Cabaret De Profundis
Mar 13, 2020 - Apr 4, 2020
A comedy about grief, dirty woodcuts, and one of the wonders of the world...
Based loosely on the real life Artemisia II of Caria, Cabaret De Profundis, or How to Sing While Ugl y Crying is a cabaret-style evening featuring Hannah Duggan with local composer Nathan Hall accompanying on piano. You'll learn about Artemisia, including her commissioning the creation of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, and her penchant for mourning her husband's loss by drinking his ashes in her wine. And you'll be entertained by her non-sequiturs and side stories (yes, including a song about dirty woodcuts carved by monks).
