Weekend Picks: Shattered Cabaret, Rocco, Ride, and Rubbout

Cabaret Brise-Jour (Shattered Cabaret) at York Theatre

This is an amazing update of Kurt Weill's pre- and post-war music made vibrant and accessible for a contemporary audience. This is carefully and cleverly choreographed anarchy. I can't recommend it enough for those looking for a little bit of art in their entertainment. Is this theatre or is it rock 'n' roll? It doesn't matter; it's just brilliant. Bring ear plugs if you have sensitive hearing, but by all means still go!

York Theatre, 639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC
April 2-6, 2014 at 8 PM
Tickets are $17-$38 at The Cultch

Rocco at Vancouver Playhouse

"In Rocco dancers become boxers and boxers become dancers. In a boxing ring one challenges the other by striking punches, fast footwork, and virtuoso tactics. The dancers represent brotherhood in all its senses: the good and the bad, devil and angel, the androgynous and the incestuous. They are Cain and Abel, Romulus and Remus, Laurel and Hardy. Rocco is a dance performance about physical and psychological extremes."

Vancouver Playhouse at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 630 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, BC
April 4-5, 2014 at 8 PM
Tickets are $40-$76 at DanceHouse.ca
