Kinetic Cabaret Productions was created in 2017, by wife and wife team The Brides, Faux Pas le Fae and Aurora North, because they realized the need to generate meaningful pathways for underrepresented artists to receive greater visibility and financial success. KCP cultivates creative opportunities and carves out performance spaces for the powerful voices of LGBTQ and female identified artists. Unique and daring Performance Art is produced, drawing from the traditions of Circus & Sideshow, Dance, Storytelling, and Visual Art. It is vital that underrepresented and marginalized voices be centered and empowered. KCP, through shows and workshops, gives these artists platforms to be fierce ambassadors for self acceptance, respect for others, and to promote radical change.
