If Jim Henson's Muppets were fused with the Kit Kat Club in hedonistic pre-War Berlin, it's kind of like the atmosphere painted by the French-Canadian production called Cabaret Decadanse currently at the Gilded Balloon.
Through a series of short musical numbers, three puppeteers breathe life into their characters, occasionally slipping into the action themselves.
Serge Deslauriers and Enock Turcotte are synchronised in their control of a single puppet like two expert pianists playing the same piano. Many of the caricatures are Diva-esque in nature. They are sassy and sexy, and can even perform a striptease!
Andre-Anne Le Blanc straps the numbers together as the grotesque MC, using just the foam head of a puppet and a feather boa. The evening is a fast-paced event brimming with originality and talent.
