On April 20th, Your Funny Uncle gave an exclusive performance at legendary Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. The venue was packed and sold out.
Cabaret Voltaire is the birthplace of Dada and Dadaism and was opened in Zurich on the evening of February 5, 1916. This is where the history of the avant-garde art movement began, which not only shaped European modernism, but also art and society today. A special and historic venue indeed!
By the time Cabaret Voltaire opened – initially as the artists’ local «Voltaire» – Europe had already been through two years of war. While the First World War was raging, many intellectuals, writers, anarchists, artists, and opposition members sought refuge in «neutral» Switzerland.
