Kabarett 16-Bit - April 2005

On Saturday April 9, 2005, The Ominous Collective presents their third in a series of the Kabarett 16 Bit, this time a very special occasion as Collective founders, electro-rock band Robotzen celebrate the release of their second CD "The Violence Factors In".

Special guest for the evening will be poet Catherine Sasanov, reading from her latest work about La Santa Muerte (St. Death) in Mexico City. Sasanov is the author of the poetry collections Traditions of Bread and Violence (Four Way Books) and All the Blood Tethers (Northeastern University Press). She is the librettist for the theater piece Las Horas de Belén: A Book of Hours commissioned by Mabou Mines. Over the past few years, Sasanov has received fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation, the NEA, and Mexico's National Fund for Culture and the Arts, all of which have helped her track down the relatives of a long dead Italian saint, bring to light the histories of women locked away in the religious sanctuary-turned-prison of Belen, and interview the followers of St. Death in Mexico City.

Also performing that evening will be Ominous Collective members Seven Sunless Days (gothic/industrial/darkwave) and The Illegitimate Theatre Company (performing, appropriately, an Appalachian snake charmer tune). Expect a selection of fiction by Edrie, scarves and mysteries by Badriya the belly dancer, improvised music, and other strange happenings.

Hosting the evening will be the ever trashy diva Jutta.
