Piccolo Tales (Season 2) Fundraiser ‐ A Cabaret Conspiracy
To mark Vittorio’s 81st birthday, we invite you to step back in time to Sydney 1978 and join us for a tribute to the infamous Cabaret Conspiracy ‐ and help raise funds for the next season of Piccolo Tales during the 2016 Sydney Mardi Gras.
“Welcome to Cabaret Conspiracy! Thank you for coming and I hope you fuckers get your 50cents worth. The stars for tonight will be: chanteuse magnifique Anita Douche and Marguerite Montes, illusionists extraordinaire Aaron Manhattan, magician Dale Trueman, violinist Peter Urquhart And divas To die For Christa Hughes And the legendary Boom Boom ‐ plus many more suprises. To kick the night off how about we set the cabaret bar low with a shit song from me ‐ VITTORIO BIANCHI? You want to hear shit singing? Real shit singing? Please help me out in the chorus – I always forget the fucking words.”Cabaret Conspiracy was started by Johnny Allen and Fifi L’Amour in 1978 to promote theart of cabaret. Its home was Garibaldi’s Coffee Shop in Darlinghurst.
Come to 107 Projects were we relive the magic of those crazy days with a line up of cabaret from thepast, present and future.“For the debris of Sydney society ‐ the punks, the spunks, the hippies and the has‐beens,the drag‐queens, surfies, trendies and transvestites… for all the people who are too coolto watch Countdown; this is your chance.” Sydney Morning Herald April 15, 1979.
Proceeds from the night will support the costs associated with next season ofPiccolo Tales for the 2016 Sydney Mardi Gras.
