Multiple Organism brings adults-only shadow puppetry to the Vancity Culture Lab!

The Cultch is pleased to present Mind of a Snail Puppet Co.’s Multiple Organism in the Vancity Culture Lab March 19-30, 2019.

Nudity. Projections. Puppetry. Original music. Personal hygiene. Cultchivating the Fringe winner, Multiple Organism is a multi-layered psychedelic dream about having a body.

An artist’s life model, tired of being objectified, steals a magical paintbrush and falls down a proverbial rabbit-hole with a pair of sentient toothbrushes. She must decide whether to follow her old internalized script, or release this script and love herself for who she really is.

This is essentially a show about seeing and being seen. There’s a new conversation happening about sex and power right now. This show is our queer little contribution.

Mind of a Snail creators, Jessica Gabriel and Chloé Ziner

Known for their multifaceted puppetry productions—utilizing unexpected surfaces and objects to bring their ideas to life—Mind of a Snail’s work is inventive and surprising, often scooping up awards for innovation and excellence. Multiple Organism won the 2018 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards Critic’s Choice Innovation Award. It also won the Critic’s Choice Award, Artistic Risk Award, Cultchivating the Fringe Award, and Pick of the Fringe at Vancouver Fringe in 2017, and the EAFF award (for artistic risk) at Orlando Fringe in 2018.

Tickets from $24. Single tickets on sale now through The Cultch’s Box Office: 604-251-1363 or
