    1 of 3 2 of 3

      Amid the risk-taking and bold experimentation happening at the rEvolver Festival, which runs at the Cultch site from next Wednesday (May 22) to June 2, here are a few more shows worth catching:

      My Dear Lewis

      May 23, 25, and 28 and June 1 and 2 at the Culture Lab

      Puppets, objects, videos, and music combine in Kyle Loven’s imaginatively staged one-man show about memory, mementos, and the meaning of life.


      Other Inland Empires

      Other Inland Empires

      May 22, 23, 25, and 26 at the Cultch Historic Theatre

      Part travelogue, part vintage-pop-fuelled ode to Gidget, writer-director Julie Hammond’s new work is based on her own real-life adventure. It follows her quest to go back to Central Europe, somehow learn to surf there, and uncover the lost story of her grandmother’s Holocaust survival.


      John Marian


      May 29 to June 1 at the Greenhouse Studio

      Vancouver-based clown artist Candice Roberts uses her alter ego Larry to explore her experiences growing up in rural B.C. in the 1980s. Culled from the male archetypes that surrounded her during her upbringing, Larry helps her investigate gender stereotypes—and makes people laugh.
