Cabaret connoisseurs the Bearded Ladies return with another platter of deliciously dangerous, sensationally sweet, and provocatively pleasurable Late Night Snacks. Running throughout the Fringe Festival in a refitted East Passyunk industrial space, these after-hours performances feature different artists every night—from opera singers to drag queens, cabaret stars to art clowns, and everything in between.

About the Artists
Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) is a professional dance company based in Philadelphia, which celebrates the ability of dance to integrate body, spirit and mind. Proceeding from a rich frame informed by diverse philosophies and contemplative practices of Asian origin, the company performs contemporary works by Artistic Director Kun-Yang Lin, and provides other programming which inspire cross-cultural approaches to community. The company’s primary work includes: creation and performance by its professional ensemble, direct education and outreach activities for youth (CHI Dance), community engagement activities at the company’s dance center and beyond and professional development services for artists.
The Philadelphia Women*s Slavic Ensemble is a fun community choir started in West Philly in 2011 as a few friends sharing simple Slavic folk songs. Since then, they have grown into a community of singers of all skill level and background who celebrate the “chest voice”; a style of singing that stems from Slavic folk tradition, best sung with homemade flower crowns and a giant bottle of red wine.
John Jarboe is a cabaret artist, director, writer, historian, and host serving you revolution, herstory, queer community making, and a whole lot of glitter. She is the founding artistic director of The Bearded Ladies Cabaret, transforming opera, cabaret, and live performance, making work that will make you sing, dance, and question. www.beardedladiescabaret.com
