Dirt Buffet Cabaret
Hosted and Curated by: Jake Tkaczyk
This evening has been put together with the theme of “Messages that will change the world, while not taking themselves too seriously.” Jake has put together a number of artists who are emerging and established, who actively create new and engaging work. This evening will contain elements of neo-bouffon antics, audience address, and absurdism. In this process Jake has found that there are so many artists that he hopes to work with in the future. Jake thanks Mile Zero for giving him the opportunity to fall back in love with all of the inspiring artists in Edmonton and surrounding areas.
