NickelPumpernickel | Victoria

LUB DUB is what you make it. It is spontaneous, honest, genuine, and vulnerable performance, in a sketch show meets performance art meets ask-me-anything kind of way. LUB DUB is an experiment in being together, creating an inclusive and open space for audience and performers, and a forum for discussions of racism, decolonization, gender, disability, and class. Every show is different, and anything goes. In a nearly perfect summation “I made monkey sounds and put pepper up my nose, but I didn’t feel pressured to do it.” – APT 613 (Ottawa Fringe Festival 2017)

Confessions of a Closet Time Traveller

This performance marks his coming out as a time traveller.

After the Beep

Pamela Bethel | Victoria

Pamela found cassettes from her very own answering machine she had as a teenager during the early 1990’s. Despite the obvious risk of death by embarrassment, she’s sharing this archive of adolescence with live audiences. Part confessional, part show-and-tell, it’s an exploration of awkward times revealed by the recorded voices of BFs, BFFs, a frenemy and wrong numbers.
