Dirt Buffet Cabaret is back!
Edmonton’s monthly performance lab & avant-garde variety show. Concept comedy, dance, performance art, music and many other shades of vaudevillian spectacle! Featuring 10-minute performances by:
- Elena Belyea and Geoffrey Brown are writers, performers, and recent graduates of the National Theatre School of Canada’s Playwriting program. They create work with Tiny Bear Jaws and Major Matt Mason Collective, respectively. They absconded to a cabin for two weeks. This is what they made.
- Mark Segger is a drummer / composer / improviser involved in the Edmonton and Toronto music scenes, most recently playing with the Damn Magpies, Craig Brenan, Brett Hansen, Pete Johnston Quartet, Lina Allemano, John Oswald, Allison Cameron, Parker Abbott Trio, and the Mark Segger Sextet. A staple in Canadian music who has played with the veritable “who’s who,” Bob Tildesley is an expressive trumpet player, particularly skilled with mutes and as adept to playing bebop as he is to handling blues and swing or participant in post bop, post modern and “free” situations. Mark and Bob will be performing music that is an exact replica of what they are playing on their instruments at the time of their set.
- Comedian Jon Mick generally complains about life, but for one night only he will be bringing unadulterated joy in the form of MAGIC. This will be the only time he shares these tricks, so some come see what’s up his sleeve (EH EH).
- Emily MacDonald is a feminist artist, creative writer and curator. Tegan Bowers is an artist and designer with a focus on humour, social commentary, and feminism. Together they will be inscribing and prescribing femininity onto each other’s bodies.
- Pete Morley is an Edmonton stand-up comedian, writer and actor. Taking a quick break from making jokes, Pete will be performing a short collection of original poetry that covers love, loneliness, loss and guilt.
- Christopher Borg is a local improviser, stand-up comic, and man-child. He has decided to do something that truly terrifies him: improvise an entire Dr. Suess style story – all by himself. He has named the format “Suessicide”, and wants to reiterate: he is terrified.
Tickets are $10, but no one will be refused for lack of funds.
