Why the Title, “Cabaret Voltaire?”

In 1916, a performance venue named Cabaret Voltaire opened in Zurich, Switzerland.  It was the place where artists could explore and experiment with what performance was.  They brought together different styles and disciplines.  There were concerts involving typewriters, rakes, and pot covers. It was music, visual art, dance and poetry all mixed together.  103 years later the Millibo Art Theatre opens its doors to a similar artistic experiment of the same name showcasing the variety, creativity, and talent of Pikes Peak’s best artists.
