Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Multiple Organism

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Here’s a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

      Even die-hard fans of Mind of a Snail, whose work is usually family-friendly, are in for a surprise—and a treat.

      This adults-only show begins with a projection of a mouth on a naked female torso whose breasts have been painted with big googly eyes. This character walks us through its daily grooming routine, which contains surprise after hilarious surprise.

      The show’s freewheeling inventiveness, technical precision, visual and acoustic texture, and giddy transgressiveness (toothbrushes engage in X-rated activities, a toilet talks) make it a must-see for anyone who appreciates artistic risk—and wildly original success.
