Little Orange Man

Little Orange Man - Ingrid Hansen with Ape, photo credit Dave BukachPresented by Hectik Theatre, this fringe theatre play sees Victoria-based artist Ingrid Hansen adopt the persona of a 12-year-old Danish girl named Kitt the Kinder-Whisperer.

Kitt’s described in the press release as a high octane girl, and her greatest delight is to re-enact for neighbourhood children grisly folk tales told to her by her grandfather. She does so by using toys, shadow puppets, and even leftover bits of food from lunch.

In previous performances in other cities Little Orange Man received rave reviews. Despite its sometimes manic subject matter, the play is rated E for Everyone.    

Little Orange Man runs Wednesday Oct. 15 to Friday Oct. 17 and Wednesday Oct. 22 to Friday Oct. 24 at 8 p.m. at the Artesian. Saturday Oct. 18 and Oct. 25 there’s performances at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students with ID, although tonight’s show is pay what you can.

You can find more information on the Artesian website.
