READ ALL ABOUT IT at the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret
DUSTY FLOWER SHOP TO GET AN UPGRADE
We are re-decorating, re-vitalizing, re-organizing, re-painting and eventually renovating! Artistic Director Kat Single-Dain has been working hard during the pandemic on plans to improve every aspect of the studio theatre in preparation for re-opening and has successfully raised all the funds needed for a complete upgrade! Here at the Dusty Flowerpot, we don't get bored, we get busy!
The studio improvement team at the moment is Kat Single-Dain, Rhys Lillo, Michael Undem and Jennifer Little. We've also had many other hands on the process, including Melody Mangler and Devo Faber. Thank-you to all and the work continues....probably until the new year 2022. It takes a lot of time to get plans and permits properly in place. We expect the studio to re-open at some point after Parade of Lost Souls, and will keep you up to date. As such, we are not currently taking any studio rentals. However, you CAN expect a rip-roaring opening party or series of parties to re-open.
Funding received from and HUGE Thanks to Canadian Heritage, City of Vancouver, and BC Arts Council.
PARADE OF LOST SOULS 2022

THE SWING OUT
AT *THE DUSTY FLOWERPOT CABARET*
LIVE MUSIC. DRINKS. DANCING.
First Event: September 6, 2022 Following Events: Tuesdays 7-10 pm
Live music is brought to you by The Dusty House Dance Band led by Jo Abbott!

THE SWING SERIES
Want to hone in on your swing dancing skills and show off to your friends? We'll you've found the right place!
Led by Kat Single-Dain, this semi-private 6 week class will take you from rusty to ready, PLUS you get to practice what you just learned in the class with 'The Swing Out' happening immediately after the class. Don't learn a new skill and then forget it right away, learn it, then practice it at The Swing Out to get that muscle memory dialed in.
The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret presents a new play by Kat Single-Dain. CALL ME CC is a comedy starring the decline of human civilizationa itself. Finally, 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.
There are very limited tickets available to these showings. If you would like a seat please text the following number:

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.
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!
