Bethencourt Productions presents a special Literary Cabaret of new writing, drama, music & comedy depicting the extremes to which an individual will go when their human rights are violated. From the degrading treatment of a woman in her own home, to the hostile occupation and destruction of a nation’s territory and source of livelihood, to advocating for the human right to babysitting, MC & producer Leonor Bethencourt brings artists together to celebrate the power of art to portray and condemn the abuse of human rights in a domestic and international setting.

This event is part of the Smashing Times & Front Line Defenders Festival of Arts & Human Rights in Dublin (19th-29th September).

Bethencourt Productions celebrates the second anniversary of this series of monthly literary cabarets at Buswells Hotel. Artistic Director & MC, Leonor Bethencourt draws from the comedy, music and theatre scene in Dublin, to bring artists together once a month to celebrate literature that challenges, provokes and scandalizes. With a focus on the unmentionable, the censored and the filthy, in the historical landmark that is Buswells Hotel. Previous cabaret themes: Madness, Gaelic Revival, Gothic Horror, Terrorism, Christmas Family Rows, Women, Road Trips & Forbidden Love.
