The Brink is a cabaret of song and dance that is quite unique. It was created in partnership with Links Hall, Chicagos DCASE, Darmouth College/VoxFest and the Cricoteka Centre in Krakow, Poland. The European influence is very strong in its style. It shares some similarities with the Trap Door Theatre, who are known for putting on cutting edge shows from Europe. The playlist is composed of American pop and jazz standards performed in their own original style.
The instrumentation is unique as well. In addition to the vocals, there is a piano, a small drum set, and a theremin, which controls the pitch and volume based on the position of the performers hands. The performances are also sexy at times. For example, one performer sings wearing a white button down shirt without pants while water is poured over her head.
