HAPPENINGS IN THE DFC COMMUNITY
The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret presents a new initiative to help promote the shows, workshops, events and other projects of the expansive DFC community. Check back soon, and often, to find out what's happening around town. You don't want to miss out!
ANY COSTUME YOU CAN THINK OF...
We have an extensive costume department. Rentals are available. Also, if you have a theme party we can outfit performers, or go go dancers on virtually any theme.
MOBILE DISCO PARTY
This is a disco ball on a backpack, and it can either be worn and rove high above the crowd, creating a dance party anywhere it goes, or sit in the middle of your dance floor, living room, outdoor festival, or wedding. It comes with a performer, who is usually an albino tiger, but can dress on theme for any event using our extensive costume department. Best disco light effect during evening or low light events.
The Giraffe and or the Mime
The Great Dragonfly
The Great Crab
The Great Heron
This incredible puppet has a 12 foot wingspan and a 4 foot beak! It creates quite a splash anywhere it travels to.
The Headless Dancer
$15 a mug
$7 per book or all 3 for $15
Buy one book or get all three! Blank notebooks with front and back cover by Gloria. To purchase or for more info, contact Kat Single-Dain at the link below.
PARADE OF LOST SOULS 2022 HAPPY HOUR
POLS Happy Hour
@the DFC (141-2050 Scotia Street, Vancouver)
Fridays Oct 14, 21, 28, | 4-6pm
Open House Costume-Sale Costume-Making Happy Hour Fridays!
Join us at the DFC studio where you can do a variety of things including make a costume, buy a costume, contribute to set decoration preparations, meet potential collaborators, DJ (or play music) for the folks enjoying the space, get a tour of the new improvements of the space, meet with the crew of the Parade and talk about any ideas they have for the upcoming event.
SWING DANCE NIGHTS!
You will not find another class like this in town. Kat teaches with a unique fun and fundamentals first approach. Swing dance is joyous at its core and it creates an opportunity to connect to other people in one of the best ways, through action not words. You can travel and dance with people even when you don't speak the same language, you can get out of the house more often, you can MOVE your body because it feels good.
Give yourself a gift and commit to a series. You can't knock it until you try it ten times. This will be a progressive series so you have to come at or near to the beginning. Drop ins are welcome once you've taken the series once!
No partner necessary. It is SWING after all.
Available for Private Lessons
or Group Lessons at your Party
GET THE WORD OUT!
If you're a member of the DFC Artistic Community, send us a little blurb about a current or upcoming project you're working on. Send us an email, via "Submit a Listing" above. Please include your name and contact, the project title and a brief description, the location, time, pricing and a link to a website/social media page. We also always welcome an image. We'll review your post and get back to you shortly. Thanks for your interest! We look forward to hearing what you're up to!
A band that puts on a show....
OUT OF TIME
We are both a wacky band that does regular music sets, and a theater show. Out of Time is our 60 minute kids show on stage!
THE MYRTLE FAMILY BAND
The Myrtle Family Band engage and delight audiences of all ages with their porch stompin’, wash-tub bass bouncing jug-time traditionalish jazz, their twinkling-tap numbers and their on-stage family dynamic-antics!
Through their songs and shenanigans the Myrtle Family play with a yearning for a simpler time, the value of a good porch and connection with family and community. Though they are earnest, endearing and not always explicit; their songs and banter often refer to adult subject matter such as booze, stealing and sex. (Just saying.)
The Myrtles come with a variety of characters who are available to host stages, conduct interactive audience ice-breakers, and facilitate workshops from tap and swing dancing, clowning and improv and/or individual dance/clown pieces for collaborative cabarets.
