The Art of Cabaret le Fey: A Gallery Showcase by Julianna Rose

Join Cabaret le Fey and True Focus Theater in showcasing the artwork of Julianna Rose. The gallery showcase will begin at 6:30, with performances by Cabaret le Fey’s own fantastical creatures dispersed throughout the evening. Admission is free! Beverages will be available by donation.

Julianna Rose is a young visual artist living in Los Angeles. Working with oil as well as ink and pastel, her work centers on feminine beauty in a mystical, ethereal realm. Julianna’s collaboration with Cabaret le Fey was an intuitive, organic process where the backstory of each dancer’s stage character provided inspiration for the portrait. Allowing for supernatural characteristics, each dancer’s style, personality, and sensual appeal is depicted in unmistakeable resplendence.

Remember, remember the 5th of November…
And a few days later, when shit REALLY started getting messed up.
Now some things are reaching a fever pitch.
What better time to come together as a community of artists with something to say?

Sunday November 5th, join True Focus TheaterCabaret le Fey, and special guests as we express ourselves, raise our voices against oppression and hate, raise money for a good cause, and have a great time.

Yes, we take a knee.
Yes, we fight the patriarchy.
Yes, we use preferred pronouns.
Yes, we hate bigotry.

The evening will feature burlesque, dance, spoken word, and a variety of performances relating to the current socio-political climate.

FEATURING
Amaya Absynthe, Steven Alloway, Mae Lust, Paranoiac, Diana Varco & Hosted by Vanessa Cate

with MORE TBA!

Liquor & Concessions by Donation.

PAY WHAT YOU CAN
Half the proceeds go to More Than “No”.
Half the proceeds go to True Focus Theater (which helps to cover the cost of the space, equipment, and concessions).

OUTrage is True Focus Theater‘s department of social activism by way of art and fundraising.
– On January 20th we held Anti-Inauguration Day in protest of bigotry and oppression. Together we raised more than $730 for Planned Parenthood.
– On March 24th we raised money for the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
It’s a scrappy punk rock evening of feminist dance, spoken word, being out, and refusing to be silent!

More Than “No” is an outreach and educational group aimed at championing consent-culture through artistic activism. More than “NO” believes an open dialogue about rape, sexual violence, and consent needs to be a common occurrence in order to eradicate it from our society. They offer educational workshops and peer support groups for survivors and allies. More Than “No” also produces “Cabaret Con-Sensual”, which provides survivors and allies a space to express themselves through the performing arts.

True focus theater's creative writing group

True Focus Theater‘s monthly Creative Writing Group is back! Bring your notebooks and writing utensils, and be ready open yourself creatively.

This is a workshop for writers of all styles and experience levels. ANYONE IS INVITED & NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

Next Workshop Date TBA Soon!

So what is this group anyway?
Vanessa Cate leads the group in writing exercises. The aim is to start from your truth, use writing in a therapeutic way, build character, play with language, and feel free and empowered in your craft.
The evening ends with a brief guided meditation and the opportunity to share any work you feel comfortable with.

The group will start promptly at 8:00pm, so arrive a little early to get comfortable and enjoy some refreshments. The workshop will go for approximately 2 hours. Afterwards, you are welcome to stay for snacks and drink (feel free to bring some too if you’d like – potluck style).

$ Donations will be accepted (Pay what/if you can) – All proceeds past materials help support True Focus Theater.
