The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret presents a new play by Kat Single-Dain. CALL ME CC is a comedy starring the decline of human civilization itself. This is your chance to meet Climate Change itself, live and in person! You might regret it. But we all have to face Climate Change eventually, so may as well buy a ticket now. Finally in a form that we can relate to, CC is equal parts charming and disgusting, graceful and garish, irresistibly fun and coldly egotistical. A ‘serious comedy’, the underlying narrative of the show—humanity’s own real narrative-- is gravely serious while the show itself is an absolute ball. Never didactic or depressing, CC charms us all into thinking about her a little bit more....And deftly proves that she alone deserves the spotlight.
Catch "Call me CC" February 3rd and 4th 2023 at The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. There will be two separate showings at 7-8pm and 9-10pm each night! Tickets below.

Disco Inferno is HALF actual discotheque, set in 1976, with YOU as the guests, dancers and mingling crowd, and HALF musical comedy for your viewing enjoyment. So you can take your pick; Dance or Sit Back and Enjoy. Or Both! You may end up coming multiple times because every night features different dance and roller groups, and every night has the potential for a different ending. Featuring original music by 2021 Best Comedy Album Juno nominee, Shirley Gnome, and creation/direction by the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret's Kat Single-Dain, in a collaboration that can only result in THE WORLD'S ONLY INTERACTIVE DISCO MUSICAL (that we've ever heard of....)
We all need a disco now and then and we think the time is NOW. Leave your cares at the door, or burn them on the dance floor, for this is a night for the shared joy of living.
APRIL 7TH, 8TH
DANCE PARTY 10PM-LATE!
*STAY TUNED FOR SATURDAY SHOW DATES!
DEDICATED TO CREATING AND SUPPORTING ORIGINAL WORK OF PHYSICAL THEATRE ON STAGES BOTH TRADITIONAL AND SITE SPECIFIC
Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret was formed in 2006 on a rainy winter's night in a Strathcona, Vancouver art studio, when a group of local artists met over red wine and blue cheese and decided to collaborate.
The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret is a non-profit society dedicated to creating and supporting original work of physical theatre in stages both traditional and site specific. Since 2013, we operate from our studio The Dusty Flower Shop which is also available for rentals.
The DFC creates large scale musicals, small scale roving acts, and festivals. On a regular basis the DFC produces the well loved and community involved Parade of Lost Souls, a monthly "Third Thursday Cabaret" and a weekly "Clown Gym" work out for anyone who has clown or physical theatre equivalent training. All of these events are offered by donation. Please contact Kat Single-Dain, Artistic Director since 2013, to get involved with our season of activities, as there are many many opportunities!
