When Norma, the Vancouver-based arts collective, perform their last performance as a group, they do it cat-style. The long-running collective, fronted by artist Vanessa Kwan, will perform Swan Song (for Cats) at Club PuSh as part of the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. We guarantee a random good time at the one-night only performance on Saturday, January 25 at Club PuSh on Granville Island. Norma, in collaboration with Vancouver’s favourite songstress Veda Hille, are dangling the promise of gaudy costumes, a choir, a unitard, a dance routine, a light show and some sweet, sweet song.
Oh, and a thousand cats. A thousand Internet-meming cats.
So to prime us for this over-the-top show, we’ll now suck up your entire day with this critical viewing video list:
1.Maru: A fat cat’s love affair with a cardboard box.
2.Tape Cats: A Study
3. Don’t go chasing waterfalls.
4. Cat in shark costume chases a duck while riding a Roomba. It is what it says it is, and it will make you cry.
5. Law of physics: If a cat jumps it will land, however inelegantly.
6. If you can watch this one without gasping, there is a vacuum where your heart should be.
So, do we apologize for wasting your work day? Maybe.
