The Cultch’s 2020-2021 digital season continues with an apocalyptic cabaret and the return of its fall hit musical revue.
The new year kicks off with a pre-recorded online performance of Canadian John Millard and Tomson Highway’s The Cave (Jan 22-44), an apocalyptic cabaret about animal refugees and the climate crisis.
Featuring four performers singing in English and Cree, who portray abstractions of Bear, Moose, Beaver, Skunk, Snake, Wolf, Crow, and Fox, The Cave tells the story of this group of unlikely bedfellows seeking refuge from a vicious forest fire in a Bear’s cave. Waiting out the inferno, they share stories and take comfort in their newfound community while the fire encroaches.
February sees the return of live-stream performances of Do You Want What I Have got? A Craigslist Cantata (Feb 5-7). A critical and audience hit in the fall, the musical revue brings Craigslist ads to life in a “quirky, sometimes hilarious and ultimately touching” show that may very well be what we all need right now.
