A SUNDAY OF LOVE CABARET SHOW
10 Marias Cultural Association is proud to announce the long awaited return of Sunday Show, a desire shared both by artists and audiences. Sunday Show emerged in Bairro Alto, Lisbon in 2002, hosted by Madunna and/or La Monique, who introduced other artists and gracefully printed the rhythm of the show.
A magical world of fantasy, glitter and trash, for the pure delight of the public, the so engaging performances took place week after week. Among the famous “Repeat”, where all artists interpreted the same song, other times the same dance, the themes would change each show, inspired by daily reality. The burlesque, the satire or simply the absurd were dissected by both the artists and the audience.
When: 10:00pm, Saturday, December 15, 2018
Where: Live Music Association, 11B, 50 Avenida do Coronel Mesquita, Macau
How much: MOP $100 per person
