19:00 – 20:00 – Performance
20:00 -22:00 – Post Show Pickle Party
Welcome to the jar.
Here, tragedy floats and the lonely wail of an abandoned tomato cuts through the salty atmosphere.
Come hear the lament of lives not lived, watch the chaotic energy of the search for meaning and try to find the connection between these decaying vegetables and your own existence.
Be prepared, bring a napkin, will you laugh or cry? who knows. You’ll leave all stirred up but none the wiser.
A surreal theatrical cabaret for adults with puppetry, mask, and perhaps a poem that promises more vegetables per pound than any current supermarket. So, don’t worry about inflation when there is disintegration.
Ruxy Cantir is a theatre maker born and raised in Moldova (Eastern Europe). This provided her with a grotesque sense of humour, boney elbows, and a desire to celebrate the odd and the unusual. She creates original physical theatre in ensemble and by herself, and believes in the full physical gesture as the epitome of human expression. She is inspired by the absurd, highly physical comedy, and embarrassing stories. She strives to create imaginative intensity-filled original work that explores the bizarre manifestations of our fears and desires. Most of her work falls somewhere between styles like Clown, Vaudeville, Physical Comedy, and Movement theatre.
