 "a truly mesmerizing piece of theatre" - Edmonton Journal


'33 (a kabarett) -- A performer stumbles onto a stage ripped apart by violence. His friends and colleagues were beaten and arrested by the authorities.  Only their shattered props and costumes remain.  His spirit is crushed.  Even his songs have shattered and emerge in fragments.  He intends to give up and vanish into the night. But an audience has slipped through the broken door. They wait, partly in solidarity, partly hoping for a spectacle. Inspired, the man pays homage to his fallen friends, performing each of their acts – the sexual play of the showgirl, the revolutionary humour of the comedian, the movement of the light footed dancer. In these tributes, he gains the strength to carry on.
