A curated collection of bite-sized clips will feature as Adelaide Cabaret Festival goes online.
'Bite Sized & Home Delivered' will highlight cabaret favourites sharing stories, snippets and songs they've recorded during isolation, in response to the classic 'what good is sitting alone in your room?' from 'Life Is A Cabaret'.
Devotees of the art form of cabaret can tune in on social media throughout June, where video memories will be posted including photos from the archives.
“Everything we love about cabaret and performance is that feeling of real people around you - sharing something, laughing, singing, crying, clapping, dancing, chatting," Artistic Director Julia Zemiro says.
“While there is no way we could re-create the amazing programme the team and I had put together this year, we didn’t want to leave an empty space.

“So, this June we will be joining you at home on what will be the 20th anniversary of Adelaide Cabaret Festival – an incredible achievement!
“We hope you are entertained and find laughter and playful moments through our online platform, so grab a glass of champagne, pop on some sparkles and heels, and enjoy cabaret on your couch.”
Viewers can set the mood for a cosy night in by ordering a 'Cabaret Couch Kit', complete with wine and cheese platters, delivered to their door by Out In The Paddock, Greenock Estate Wines and Pol Roger champagne.
