Working title: Reclaiming cabaret. A queer haunted autoethnography of real, researched and imagined voices from cabaret past and present.
I use autoethnography (my lived experiences and interviews with my peers), hauntology (a methodology referring to the return or persistence of elements from the past, in the manner of ghosts), and queer theory (a way of challenging and disrupting accepted heteronormative discourse and celebrating marginalised voices), to recount my life in a small touring cabaret dance company in Italy between 1980-1986. I also investigate people and places from the origins of the modern cabaret in fin-de-siècle Paris and bring the past and present together in a magically real space, where real, researched and imagined lives meet, haunt and interact within my lived experience.
