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 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!
