Cabaret Muse Me is a simulcast performance, recounting a story of crises and love beyond dimensions, looking upon fresher ways of being, sharing and whether we, you are up for it. Written in the fall of 2009, Cabaret Muse Me examines crises as personal and communal, economical and ecological, and its onset as an advocation of examining new beginnings, ways of being, creating and sharing across the world, reminding us that dimensions of time and space are simply measures. The performance is created and performed across countries and settings; with dance, music, and audiences all located physically separated but psychically, visually, aurally & emotionally connected. A dance performance actually takes place in embryonic loci, at CPR, Center for Performance Research, from where it is broadcast via internet to SPLATTERPOOL in NY and DEPO in IST. Dinner is served, and the audience is the performers. Video and photography of the process of the performances were documented for a future exhibition in the fall of 2010. The audiences interact by sharing the same food, visions and music. Two characters counteract, a 1930's cabaret character, versus a surreal contemporary connectivity goddess, examining society, technology, spirituality & sharing with their songs.
