The Cultch, your theatre destination this weekend

Butt Kapinski, The Cultch, Vancouver theatre

Playing with your Butt (Kapinski) at the Cultch this weekend

This weekend, the Cultch has the two best shows in town: Ronnie Burkett’s The Daisy Theatre and Deanna Fleysher’s Butt Kapinski.

Butt Kapinski is a participatory clown show. Don’t be a wuss. Show up and play. You’ll feel liberated. Fleysher sticks her hand into gender and pulls it inside out, like a sock.

If you’ve seen The Daisy Theatre before, you probably don’t need to catch this year’s iteration; there’s not enough new material to merit it. But, Jesus, when this marionette cabaret works, it really, really works. Just wait for Schnitzel, the clown fairy, and Little Woody Linden, who is a ventriloquist’s dummy controlled by a marionette ventriloquist. Think about it.
