Last Tuesday, The Cultch hosted the Canadian premiere of Cadre, presented with Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Richard Jordan Productions Ltd in association with the Market Theatre of Johannesburg.

This story of a South African freedom fighter during apartheid is extremely powerful and is blowing audiences and critics away.

Check out some of the reviews here:

If you want theatre that grabs you by the throat, brain and/or balls – if you want theatre that shows you a life and world that is likely beyond your imagining – if you like to feel things and be moved by live performance, then you should see this play!” — David C. Jones, OUT TV

Scars of apartheid offer intense audience experience” —Erika Thorklenson, The Vancouver Sun

Hits home because it’s so relevant in Canada…skilled and important. It’s a postcard we should be grateful to receive” —Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight

A devastatingly powerful piece. Cadre reminds us of the real price of freedom” —Mark Robins, Vancouver Present

Be sure to see this powerful and emotional performance before it closes! Here are some photos of our opening night reception. All photos were taken by our volunteer photographer, WendyD.

The Cultch’s Not-To-Miss List: Our picks for the 2014/2015 Season (Part 2)

Last week we brought you the season highlights of three Cultch staff members: Caitrin Innis (Development Coordinator), Zoe Forsyth (Cultch Concierge), and Lisa Wu (Design and Web Coordinator). This week we continue the series by asking Ricky Choi (Marketing Coordinator), Isa Szeto (Design and Web Coordinator), and Maria Kerninon (Marketing Intern) what shows they are most excited to see next season!

Cadre by Chicago Shakespeare Theater and Richard Jordan Productions Ltd

This sounds like a very interesting story of watching someone’s life change when one governing regime falls and another takes its place. How much control does one have in a situation like this? It’s a universal story of wanting and dreaming of a better future.

Music Creates Opportunity by Bboyizm

Street dancing on the stage? Sign me up! I hardly ever get to see this kind of stuff live, living in Vancouver. Since I don’t have “the moves” myself, the next best thing is watch others popping, locking and rocking.

Famous Puppet Death Scenes by The Old Trout Puppet Workshop

I loved the Old Trout’s Ignorance, so I’m looking forward to this show, as I expect its going to make me think about my own mortality again, plus make me laugh at the same time (death and chuckles: a fine combo).

Cinderella: An East Van Panto by Theatre Replacement

I got a chance to attend a reading of this production this past June and was blown away. I feel like Charles Demers did it again, creating a witty and modern adaptation of Cinderella with an East Van twist. Everything from the cultural references, casting, and music (psst they cover Sinead O’Connor) were right up my alley.

Loon by Wonderheads

What intrigues me most about LOON is that it deals with the idea of loneliness in a unique and whimsical manner – can a man really fall in love with the moon? It’s also a show that I really want to see with my parents, as english is their second language and I feel like the production’s focus on visual storytelling will make it make it accessible for all of us to enjoy.

Maria

Maria Kerninon, Marketing Intern

Broken Sex Doll by The Virtual Stage

I have read so many positive reviews about this show and it really makes me want to see it! I really like the fact that they use electronic music to portray the futuristic setting. It makes it a very modern musical. This is a new version of Broken Sex Doll so it will probably be interesting even for people who have already seen it. I also can’t wait to see the set and the costumes!

Cinderella: An East Van Panto by Theatre Replacement

I got the chance to attend a reading of Cinderella: An East Van Panto at the beginning of the summer and it made me really eager to see the show. I didn’t think it would be my kind of humour but it was really hilarious! I can’t even imagine how amazing the show will be with the songs, the costumes, and everything else! I also love the fact that it is the perfect family show for the holidays and that both kids and adults will be able to laugh together with this modern East Van adaptation of the classic tale.

 

The Cultch’s Not-to-Miss List: Our picks for the 2014/2015 Season

And so it begins! The Cultch’s 14/15 season will open on September 23 with The Daisy Theatre by the renowned puppet master, Ronnie Burkett. The season will be filled with imaginative tales, creative dances, and captivating musical performances. Theatre-goers can expect to be dazzled by international artists and up-and-coming visionaries for what promises to be our best season yet! In anticipation of what looks to be an unforgettable performance line-up, we asked some of our staff members which shows they are most looking forward to seeing. Check back soon, as we will have a part two with more suggestions from the rest of our staff next week!

The Daisy Theatre by Ronnie Burkett

I’m excited for The Daisy Theatre! I first saw Ronnie Burkett perform when he did Penny Plain in 2011 and I loved it. His puppets are beautifully made, the shows are always funny and very moving, and I can’t wait to see what new characters are coming to The Daisy Theatre this season.

Stationary: a recession-era musical by Delinquent Theatre

Stationary is another one I’m really looking forward to. I loved hearing  Christine Quintana talk about Stationary at our 2014 – 2015 Season Launch and I love musicals…like, a lot, so an indie-rock musical sounds right up my alley!

zoeZoe Forsyth, Cultch Concierge

This was excruciating for me to write. The more I thought about this question the more confused I became, for they really all are “must-see’s” for me. It sounds horribly sales pitch but this was a much more difficult question than I had previously thought. I re-watched the season video in the hopes it might help whittle down the options but it just made me realize how truly dense with awesome this season is… I’ll try to be succinct: Cadre, The Road Forward, Loon and Obaaberima – I believe these 4 shows will be exceptional. They raise important questions; maybe you think about social injustices (current and past) and emotionally I know I’ll be feeling hard as some of the content is challenging and scary (for me). I also love different medium collaborations, multimedia, and puppets which are employed in some of these. With that in mind, The Four Horseman Project looks super exciting, sort of kooky and Andy Warhol-esque with lots of animation. And I LOVE having a good laugh and a good time so Butt Kapinski, Broken Sex Doll, Music Creates Opportunity, East Van Panto, Daisy Theatre and Famous Puppet Death Scenes. Oh man, they’re all a feast for the eyes and tons of fun. However, I think three of my unexpected favourites will actually be: Motherload, The Duchess and Transmigration –  the honesty, the technical prowess and the beauty will hook me, Basically, I’m getting prepared to be blown away constantly, challenged regularly, and having a good time all the time.

Lisa Wu, Design & Web Coordinator

 Cinderella: An East Van Panto by Theatre Replacement

I loved last year’s Jack & the Beanstalk: An East Van Panto. It was good zany, heartwarming fun with awesome music by Veda Hille. It was my first pantomine, and it was tons of fun to cheer, boo, and sing along. I have to admit, I even kind of teared up a bit when the whole theatre sang Silent Night together (an adapted East Van version, no less). I thought Allan Zinyk was so hilarious, so I’m excited to see that both Allan Zinyk and Dawn Petten will be returning to star in this year’s East Van Panto again. I also loved that so many amazing surprise guests made cameo appearances. I got to see two shows where Steve Bays (of Hot Hot Heat, Fur Trade, and Mounties fame) as well as Marsha Lederman (arts writer for The Globe and Mail) made cameos. David Suzuki, Dan Mangan, and even Nardwuar made cameo appearances too. I was pretty bummed that I missed Nardwuar’s cameo – I heard he crowd surfed into the crowd. I can’t wait to see who the surprise guests will be this year and of course, I’m looking forward to seeing how the classic Cinderella story will unfold into a clever, modern, East Van tale.

Stationary: a recession-era musical by Delinquent Theatre

Stationary just sounds plain awesome. Just from reading the blurb alone, I’m sure that I’ll love it. I feel like it’s going to be like if the movie Office Space were a musical. The show has an uber talented cast: the music director, Mishelle Cuttler, did the music direction for another show I saw, Cool Beans, which I loved. Brian Cochrane works here at The Cultch and is a talented actor, director (he won The Most Promising New Director award at this year’s Jessie Awards by the way, nothing to cough at), and apparently he raps in the show. And Christine Quintana, co-creator of the show and half of Delinquent Theatre, is doing all kinds of awesome things, including being the playwright, producer, lyricist, actor, and performer in this show. So definitely looking forward to this being a smart, fun show.

Honourable mentions: The Daisy Theatre, Loon, Famous Puppet Death Scenes, and Music Creates Opportunity.

Hello my name is Kathy Battye: Box Office Manager at The Cultch

On this week’s ‘Hello My Name Is…’ we’ve interviewed a sparkling addition to our staff: Kathy Battye, our new Box Office Manager. We’ve whipped up these seven jazzy questions to acquaint The Cultch supporters with new staff members. So, without further ado, let’s get to it!

Q: Hi, what’s your name and what do you do at The Cultch?

Hello blog readers! My name is Kathy Battye and I am excited to say that I’m the Box Office Manager at The Cultch!

Q: Why did you decide to work at The Cultch?

Well I was definitely looking for change when I decided to apply to The Cultch. I had been to various Cultch shows in the past and have always been really impressed by not only the calibre of the performances, but also the range and variety of shows that are offered here. I just had a gut feeling that The Cultch would be a great place to work and would definitely provide me with the challenges that would help me grow personally and professionally.

Q: Favourite place to eat on the Drive?

Hmmm…that is definitely a tough one…a person can really eat their way around the Globe in this neighbourhood…but I’d have to say Five Elements. My first visit there was with Gosia, the previous Box Office Manager and Lisa, our Design and Web Coordinator, during my training week and it was love at first bite. I highly recommend the vegetarian hot and sour soup and garlic pork sub…oooh or a sizzling plate…ooh or a noodle bowl…oh man…now I’m hungry.

Q: What show from the 14/15 season are you looking forward to seeing the most?

I’m a musical fan myself, so I was thrilled to hear that Stationary: A recession era musical was part of The Cultch’s presentation season for 14/15. Unfortunately I missed seeing the show when it played a couple years ago, but I worked with its creator, Christine Quintana, at the Arts Club Box Office and I remember her doing her research and sharing with us all the great articles and post recession statistics she’d find. Also, our very own Box Office agent Brian Cochrane was involved in creating the rap for the show and is in the cast. If the show is even a fraction of how clever and talented they both are I’m positive it will be one to watch next season.

Q: Were there any performances that you’ve enjoyed as an audience member at The Cultch?

Absolutely! Last Christmas I went to Jack and the Beanstalk: An East Van Panto and what a holiday treat! I won tickets at the Arts Club staff Christmas Party and took some friends with me. I loved the audience participation. Any chance that I can yell “Oh no it isn’t!” at the top of my lungs always makes for a good time. I love that it was fun for the kiddies, but the humour was just cheeky enough to keep the adults laughing. I had the great pleasure this summer to sit in on a table read of next year’s Panto, and I can say without a doubt it’s going to be great fun for all!

Q: What’s your favourite thing about the theatre scene in Vancouver?

My absolute favourite thing about the theatre scene in Vancouver is that it is a community in every sense of the word. There is a mutual love, respect, and support among all the theatre companies in this city and all that good stuff contributes to the amazing shows that grace the stages in this city.

Q: It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon and you’re stuck indoors, what do you do?

A typical rainy Sunday for me involves throwing something in a slow-cooker, doing laundry and firing up the Netflix! I’m currently addicted to the show (can’t believe I’m actually admitting this…) NASHVILLE. It has become my guilty pleasure. I’m not a fan of country music, but nothing can tear me away from the rhinestones, cowboy boots and soap opera – like drama!

Q&A with David Pay, creator of The Orpheus Project

The Orpheus Project by Music on Main starts tomorrow at The Cultch! This musical adventure will take you to every corner of The Cultch for an immersive, site-specific experience. The fantastic creator of this unique piece, David Pay, shared with us his inspirations, the context of the show, as well as his own experience working on it.

What was the inspiration for The Orpheus Project?

The idea first came about when, at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam, I saw dreamthinkspeak’s Before I sleep, which was inspired by Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. You explore an entire building and see theatrical installations and interact with actors. I thought it was totally magical, and when I fall in love with art I want to possess it. When I see exceptional visual art I want to see it all the time. When I see amazing music I want to figure out how to present it. So when I saw Before I sleep, I thought, “How could this work, using music as the basis of an immersive experience rather than theatre?” Once I decided I wanted to develop an immersive musical experience, I really focused on seeing as much of that kind of work as I could, including large-scale works like Sleep No More, and smaller scale works that are more in line with The Orpheus Project.

How does that kind of experience translate into a musical one?

I explored a whole bunch of different ways to create an immersive musical experience, and with our ace creativity team, led by theatrical consultant Amiel Gladstone, we have landed on what theatre calls a “promenade experience.” Audiences are led on a path through the theatre discovering different rooms; different pieces of music inspired by Orpheus; installations and sets created by Naomi Sider; video, both with music and on its own; lighting by Adrian Muir; and new and existing compositions performed in surprising environments.

Can you give us a little hint of what people will see and where they’ll go?

We’re using both the Culture Lab and Historic Theatre at The Cultch; we’re exploring dressing rooms and stairwells; filling passageways with surprises, lounges with live performance. It is a show where the audience is on its feet, climbing stairs, stopping to listen. Keep an eye out for oracles, who might foretell your future as well. People should make sure to wear comfortable shoes! We’re asking people with mobility or other issues to let us know in advance, so we can create a special journey just for them.

What have you learned by being involved in the creative process for The Orpheus Project?

Conceiving The Orpheus Project is a natural progression for me. I’ve never been the kind of music presenter who simply chooses great artists and puts them on stage. I’ve always taken a hands-on approach to the performance environment, the relationship between artists and audiences, and how repertoire can speak to us across time periods and genres. Developing The Orpheus Project as a more theatrical music experience has allowed me to work with theatre experts who are helping me shape what feels like a new, but really authentic way of interacting with live music.

What do you hope people will take away from this experience?

I hope this will be a fun, intriguing, and new experience for every audience member. My ultimate goal is that we each see ourselves in the myths and stories and ideas presented by the composers. I think if you approach the show with an intellectual or analytical bent, you’ll have a really rich experience imbued with music and art history. But the creative team and I also want this to be a really fun, sexy date night, so you can just immerse yourself in the sights and sounds at the theatre, and that will be a fantastic experience, too.

The Orpheus Project runs from July 16 – 20 at The Cultch. Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office at 604.251.1363.

Q&A with Peter Chu:
Cultch Artist-in-Residence

Right now Peter Chu can be found completing an artistic residency at The Cultch for his new solo work. We caught up with him to find out a bit more about his project and how he feels about completing an artistic residency with us here at The Cultch!

For those of us who don’t know, can you tell us what a residency is?

A residency can be approached in many different ways. Artists can use a residency to explore movement ideas, themes, or simply to better understand subject matter they would like to explore. I have chosen to use this 12-day residency at The Cultch as a technical residency – a place to dive into exploration of the lighting, sound, and multimedia elements that will be incorporated into this work. Stepping into this space last Wednesday, the first few days were spent with projection and lighting designer Eric Chad, and production manager Lois Dawson to introduce them to the movement vocabulary and themes involved in this piece. Next it was on to the technical side of this residency – getting into the nitty gritty details as to where and how we want to incorporate all the technical elements. I am extremely grateful to Heather Redfern and The Cultch to have been given this amazing opportunity to explore, discover, and research themes technically without the expectation of a final products – something that’s often expected of artists during a residency.

What does a Cultch residency mean to you as a choreographer?

One of the first shows that I saw at The Cultch was Crystal Pite’s Uncollected Work. Many years later, I was fortunate enough to actually perform here with Kidd Pivot. I have always adored this theatre and the range of dynamic shows they present in their seasons. The Historic Theatre has big personality and a beautiful energy, and I feel so honoured to have been given the opportunity to dig deeper into the themes of this new work in such a significant space.

What are your thoughts on the importance of organizations helping out the artistic community though programs such as this?

Support from community organizations is absolutely crucial in allowing for the growth and development of creativity, regardless of the art form. This kind of backing is what allows artists to thrive and flourish, and produce significant lasting works. Without this assistance, there would be countless ‘hidden gems’ – beautiful works of art that would remain as the seed of an idea, never making it through to creation.

Can you talk a bit about your creative process when creating new works?

It’s hard for me to speak on my creative process – like all things in life it’s constantly in flux, changing and mutating depending on the work and the circumstance. I hold my creative process for this specific project very near and dear to my heart: I have been trying to better understand my process while I develop this movement vocabulary for the past several years.

Photo by Lisa Wu

Where do you look for inspiration when creating choreography?

For this specific show, the word ‘ community’ continued to present itself at the forefront of my mind. I was on the road constantly for roughly five years, living out of two storage units until I made the choice to move back to Las Vegas last July. I fell in love all over again with that city and the rich range of art and entertainment it has to offer. Inspired by the opulent history of Las Vegas lounge act artists and sounds from the 1960 s, I chose to use my new home and community as the focus and starting point for this new work. This is why The Cultch is the perfect theatre to develop this performance – it has the same intimate, charming personality as many of the Las Vegas venues that have been my inspiration.

Can you tell us a bit about the work you are currently rehearsing and what your hopes are for it in the future?

I can tell you as much as I can – as this is still a work in progress, things are constantly evolving and changing. This work revolves around themes of obsession, perfection, control, and doubt. It runs with the dangers of glorifying false appearances, and pulls back the curtain to expose the truths behind the “put on” smile. The character I have developed listens to what doubt has to say, almost befriending it in a way to truly understand why doubt has such a driving force in his life. On top of all of this, we’re blending cutting edge multimedia with these deep-rooted concepts and ideas. It is incredibly exciting stuff!

The Orpheus Project: a groundbreaking musical event!

blogAttention Music lovers!

The Orpheus Project by Music on Main is coming to The Cultch from July 16 – 20! This immersive journey is filled with musical and theatrical intrigue and will absorb you into the life of Orpheus: a poet, musician, and prophet in ancient Greek mythology who inspired generations of artists such as Jean Cocteau, Tennessee Williams, and Albert Camus.

The myth of Orpheus is centered around his ability to charm all living things even inanimate stones with his music; his attempt to retrieve his wife, Eurydice, from the underworld; and his death at the hands of those who could not hear his divine music.

Imagine roaming an entire theatre, discovering rooms filled with mysterious music and surprising interactions. Through creations by Jocelyn Morlock, Veda Hille, Cassandra Miller, James Maxwell, Barry Truax, Alfredo Santa Ana, Colin Browne, George Frideric Handel and others, you’ll explore The Cultch’s Historic Theatre, Culture Lab, as well as the dressing rooms and backstage and lobby areas. You might even break a sweat as you climb stairs and roam around! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and prepare to jump into this unique and fascinating adventure!

Music on Main have developed a growing local, national, and international reputation as tremendous storytellers for a post-classical age, creating music to bring people together. Their aim is to always create shows which give people the opportunity to make new friends, meet the artists, and to escape their to-do list for an hour or two.

Now in its eighth season, Music on Main has produced more than 180 events featuring nearly 500 musicians, creating music that has touched the souls of thousands of listeners, and helping artists around the world connect with each other and The Vancouver community.

The Orpheus Project starts on July 16 and runs until July 20 at The Cultch. Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased online or by calling the Box Office at 604.251.1363.

The Cultch’s Annual Volunteer Appreciation BBQ!

On June 16, we honoured the 110+ volunteers who gave their time this past year by throwing a Volunteer Appreciation Barbecue. More than 5537 volunteer hours were contributed in total for the 13/14 season.  This year mother nature was on our side and sent us some much needed sunshine so everybody could sit back and relax on our patio.  After the ‘Name Tag Follies’, some mingling, and some fun with our make shift photo booth, everybody enjoyed some delicious food.

A big thank you to Choices Market who, once again, generously donated the food and fixings!

We’d also like to thank The Georgia Straight, Mogiana Coffee, Science World, Vancouver Aquarium, the Arts Club, Bard on the Beach, Famoso Pizzeria, and The Vancouver Art Gallery for their wonderful prize donations. We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers who graciously give their time and energy to make The Cultch such a vibrant community venue. Now enjoy the photos below!
