Cabaret Lineup: March 7th, 8-10pm at Powerhouse Arena, Brooklyn

Inspired by the narrative from Winter Soldier, the historic event during which soldiers testified about their personal experiences, Safa Samiezade-Yazd has organized a cabaret to showcase the artistic and performance community’s response to the continuing Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. In the tradition of European literary-political cabaret, the performance will include works of social critics — bringing together the diverse aspects of artistic expression — from politics and society, into literature, theater, music, art and dance.
