Event Details

Named for the practice of burning a prairie to promote new growth, Controlled Burn is a space for queer rage, revolution, and reclamation, aimed at regeneration.

An intersectional space for queer performers, especially artists of color and with disabilities, Controlled Burn is a cabaret festival curated by the fiercely talented Taja Will, Maia Jean and Dua Saleh. This special three-night event features a unique lineup each evening.

Originally created in 2016 by Patrick's Cabaret, 20% Theatre Company is honored to continue this work by hosting Controlled Burn for the first time.
