oa Communicare : Journal for Communication Sciences in Southern Africa - Kabaret as 'n 'alternatiewe' kommunikasieverrigting
In this article an attempt is made to examine cabaret, a sub-genre of drama, as an ""alternative"" communication transaction. Firstly, reference is made to the actual theatrical performance as two-way communication (vide, inter alia, Keir Elam) between a ""cluster"" of senders (= theatrical collaborators) and the receivers (= audience). The history of cabaret is related briefly, with special reference to certain conventions that were established in Paris (1881) and the Berlin cabaret of the Weimer Republic - e.g. cross-dressing and other shock tactics.
