1. Tell us about your show.

Our show is a multimedia experience using live acting, music, video projections, as well as unusual props such as water tanks and fish. It addresses issues local to Vancouver and British-Columbia, namely the pipeline projects, and the ever-growing divide between the upper and middle class in the city of Vancouver.

2. Why should someone come see your show?

This show is different. Put together using a devised process – where all actors contribute to the development of their character and narrative of the show – Pipef@%! also features an unconventional cast from different milieus and ethnic backgrounds. The production is a quick-paced one, weaving narratives from Tennessee Williams with original, sometimes surrealist, content. Expect the unexpected.

3. If your show was a cartoon character which cartoon character would it be, and why?

Pipef@%! would be Gunther the penguin from Adventure Time! Small and quiet, its presence is nonetheless felt as soon as it appears on screen. Unconventional, gender-confused, and working under the reign of a tyrant, the infamous Ice King, Gunther manages to entertain every time.

4. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?

Our friend’s Elysse Cheadle’s show Hoof.

The 2015 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 10-20 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
