Darlinghurst’s intimate cabaret venue, Slide, located near Hyde Park in Oxford Street, recently unveiled the programme for their Third Annual Slide Cabaret Festival, running from 19-30 May 2014.
After the success of last year’s programme, the team at Slide have put together an even more diverse offering of acts featuring cabaret stars from around the globe, including party goddess Uta Uber Kool Ja who will present her show in a hotel suite at the Pullman Hotel, just around the corner from the art deco Slide Lounge.
Avigail Herman takes to the stage on 21 May and on 24 May there’s El’Circo, a blend of Parisian cabaret, vaudeville and circus performances as you enjoy a nine course degustation dinner. I’m looking forward to seeing Debora Krizak, supported by Melody Beck, perform in cABBAret on 28 May. These are just some of the acts making up this year’s programme.
The Festival begins on 19 May with a music trivia fundraiser in aid of Australian Children’s Music Foundation. There will be special guest performances and celebrity performances throughout the evening.
During the Festival, Slide are introducing their all new Late Night Piano Bar, which will be open from 10 p.m. every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, hosted by Darren Mapes. http://www.slide.com.au
