#FringeDuJour is our daily peak at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival.
Kiss Around Pass Around
Revue Stage, 1601 Johnston St
1. Tell us about your show.
I’m a one woman physical theatre, and I hope my performance will remind you of your childhood. The story is a bizzarre adventure of a mysterious creature wandering the world looking for it`s daddy. This story is inspired by my own childhood memories as I lost my own mother early, but I still have lots of beautiful childhood memories that I cherish. For example, I still find myself being afraid of thunderstorms, yet I am still amazed by many of the beauties in this world. I think in our childhoods we all had many experiences of surprise, fear, and moments of bravery.
2. Why should someone come see your show?
My show is totally different from others and I think you will remember something very precious from your own childhood. Even Japanese people have never seen a show of this kind. I’ve been often described as a clown despite having never been formally trained as a clown. It’s a physical theatre with lots of stunning sound effects, music and props, but is very different from pantomime. I do what I think is beautiful, funny and always hope to create that is something truly universal.
3. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own what show would that be?
Vaudevillian! I am a big fan of James Joran! He is one of the true artists whom we all need to see in this world!
