In Interstellar Elder, Kitt is a fierce lone geriatric astronaut adrift in a spaceship carrying cryogenically frozen human cargo. Her mission: protect the last of humankind.
Tell us about the show.
In this show’s futuristic scenario, North American Prime Minister Justin Bieber attempts to end world hunger by deforesting the continent to plant thousands of acres of genetically-modified swiss chard. This Superfood grows awry, taking over the entire planet and choking out all other forms of life. The last surviving humans are cryogenically frozen and shot into earth orbit, waiting for Earth to heal so that they may return home and begin a new civilization. On board the spaceship there is only one person left awake: the geriatric custodian and sole caretaker of the ship’s frozen ‘human cargo.’
Why should someone come to see your show?
If you love sci-fi, if you love grandmas, if you’ve ever been curious how your brain would hold up in solitary confinement.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Sigourney Weaver. Obviously.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
The Birdmann: Birdhouse. His sense of humour is unlike any other I’ve found. Always unexpected, totally charming.
#FringeDuJour is a daily peek at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. We’ve asked Fringe artists to answer a few questions to entice you to see what they have to offer and to help cross-pollinate the Fringe.
The 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 7-17 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
