About Cabaresque

Cabaresque was founded in Aarhus DK in 2014 by Sophie Ternowitz and Pernille Lund Olesen and premeried later that year with the production of the cabaret show, Bloody Burlesque. Following her performance at the first annual Yule Show, Felicia Jafari joined the production team in early 2015, and after years of being a loyal technician, Anders Kjærgaard joined in early 2021.

Some people believed Bloody Burlesque was a project too ambitious, with a full cast as well as original playwriting and music. When it ended up being a succes with sold-out shows all over the country, a thrilling adventure began, and since then Cabaresque has kept on making several glamourous shows every year, always concluding the year with The Yule Show – something that has become a Christmas tradition for many of our audience members.

Cabaresque produces theatre, cabaret and varieté. We employ a variety of performers in every production and include both newcomers, experienced and professionals. Talent and stage presence is what is important to us.
