; Fun! Fun! Vancouver!: Jerk

Monday, 25 January 2010


Will Vancouver become a festival city? I sure hope so! I know right now it feels like it could, since there are so many things to do and see at the moment! It's great because this time of year is usually so dead and gloomy. Dine Out Vancouver usually takes place at this time, but it's gotten pushed to March, after the Olympics are over.

On Saturday night I went to the PuSh International Performing Arts festival and caught a showing of the one-man play Jerk, which is based on the true story of a serial killer from the 70s who had two teenage accomplices lure boys from the neighbourhood over for him to rape, torture, and kill. Suffice to say it was quite the intense evening. Even though the murders were re-enacted with puppets, it didn't make it more endurable. In fact, I think because of the use of puppets, the show felt like it could be all that much more graphic with it.

Great performance, albeit disturbing!

Check out the PuSh festival for more intriguing performances taking place around town!!
