New Cackle Sisters: Kitchen Chicken
L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres (Québec)
Apr 02 – 06, 2019 | York Theatre [map]
A musical and culinary tour de force.
The creators of L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres Performs Tom Waits and Cabaret Brise-Jour return with a freshly cooked-up kitchen chronicle. In New Cackle Sisters: Kitchen Chicken, the songs of the American ‘30s yodel queens The Cackle Sisters contend with the ovens for an improbable meal. Staggeringly beautiful, the acts fly by at an astonishingly fast pace while the team hustles to roast a chicken, mash potatoes, prepare appetizers, which may or may not eventually be served up.
“Somewhere between music, poetry, and visual performance, they create their own art form and you suddenly find yourself treading territories you never knew existed. — Robert Lepage
