FRIDAY NOVEMBER 14, 7:30pm at CBC Vancouver
Curio is a three-ring circus of oddities and strangeness, a dark carnival of film, fair ground food, and side show fare. The word itself, a diminutive of curiosity, implies a collection of peculiar objects and experiences. A fitting definition for an evening devoted to plumbing the depths of human inquisitiveness. Combining elements of grand guignol freak show, and penny dreadfuls with accordion-fueled melancholia, the evening will feature roaming performers prowling the room and fabulous silent auction items.
