The sold out opening show of Snafu Dance’s latest Fringe show Snack Music was a who’s who of Fringe in the audience. Performers and fans alike flocked to the theatre to see what the creators of the critically acclaimed Little Orange Man and Kitt & Jane shows had in store for them this year. The theatre felt like it was one big giant family sharing a reunion together over small snack foods and a love for all things theatre. The atmosphere was one of excitement, joy and anticipation and the show hadn’t even started yet.
SNAFU Dance Theatre, Ottawa famous for their hit Little Orange Man (Ottawa Fringe 2012, Undercurrents 2014) is back with a new tale that sees Kitt teaming up with fellow social reject, Jane, to prepare us all for the coming apocalypse. Read the full review.
When last we saw her, Kitt, the ginger headed outcast, was recounting grisly Danish folk tales using food and found objects as the dramatis personae.
In so doing, she made people laugh, cry, shake their heads and give her awards; Little Orange Man, the production for which Kitt was created, took home top prize at the 2012 Ottawa Fringe Festival. Read the full review.
We sat down with any company/artist presenting at Ottawa Fringe (starting June 19th!) who wanted to chat about their upcoming shows. We gave them three minutes (approximately) to make their best case as to why we should pick them. We called it speed dating. From now through the day before Fringe starts we’re choosing one local, one national, and one international artist from those we talked to and previewing them here. Today’s national pick is Kitt & Jane: An Interactive Survival Guide to the Near Post-Apocalyptic Future. Read the full review.
Kitt & Jane: an interactive survival guide to the Near-Post-Apocalyptic Future is a mouthful to say and even at times to remember, hence from here on out it shall now fondly be referred to as just Kitt & Jane. Kitt & Jane follows our favourite Kitt from SNAFU Dance Theatre’s amazing Little Orange Man and it carries the same charm and fast paced energy that we all fell in love with the first time we saw Little Orange Man.
Celebrating theatre below the mainstream, the third annual Undercurrents festival recently announced its line-up and solidified the Great Canadian Theatre Company as the place to be for innovative and original theatre in February. Read the full review.
