Quebec’s L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres returns to Vancouver with their new show, New Cackle Sisters: Kitchen Chicken. Music and roast chicken combine in a show that is sure to be as unique as the Cackle Sisters themselves.

Here are five reasons why we think you should check it out:

1. The best parties always end up in the kitchen

Nobody can deny that the kitchen is always the best place to be at any party. In Kitchen Chicken, L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres invites the audience to a family dinner and kitchen party like no other.

2. A weirdly wonderful dinner party

For the duration of the show a meal is being cooked on stage as the performers use everything at their disposal. The show’s trailer says it all:

3. A unique sound from the ordinary

The company takes up ordinary household items and includes them as part of an ensemble of unusual instruments.

4. One-of-a-kind

Each performance of Kitchen Chicken is an event that will never happen again.

5. The DeZurik Sisters reborn

Known in the 1930’s for their unique sounds that included bird like clucks, yips, and yodeling, L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres introduces the two Grand Ole Opry stars to a new generation.

New Cackle Sisters: Kitchen Chicken plays The Cultch’s York Theatre (639 Commercial Dr, Vancouver) April 2-6. Visit thecultch.com for tickets and information.
