8-10PM  |  Cabaret Show
10PM-1AM  |  Party 

Reject reason, embrace art, and prize nonsense at this special event celebrating the centennial of Dadaism, the avant-garde movement that’s had a long-lasting influence on generations of artists, including DEVO co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh (whose work MOCA celebrates this season). Prepare yourself for a nonstop extravaganza of professional talent, amazement, bewilderment and absurdity!

The evening begins with a Dada-inspired, comedic cabaret show featuring Cleveland's "Illegitimate Theatre,"  Wizbang -- an imaginarium of neo-vaudeville, musical extravaganza, circus arts and comedy theater. Wizbang will deliver a jaw-dropping show on MOCA's stage consisting of champion juggling, performance art, Neo-Vaudevilla songs, comedic crooning, Cirque-style acrobatics, and stunning hoop and flow arts! 

As the evening goes on, it transforms into a party with dancing, revelry, outlandish fashion, a bearded lady, and a DJ set with an immersive blend of video and vintage film. Come to the cabaret, the party, or both! Dada and punk-inspired costumes are encouraged (but come as you wish).
