Festival of Animated Objects Presents
Dolly Wiggler Cabaret
Book your tickets early! This raucous night of puppetry for adult audiences is wild, weird, and extremely popular. Produced by CAOS madwoman Xstine Cook, the annual Dolly Wiggler Cabaret features a packed roster of festival artists and local greats, staging bits of brilliance and new raw material in edgy, hilarious and unforgettable performances that will leave a mark on your psyche. Calgary’s #1 Legion is the perfect cabaret venue, inspiring rapture previously only experienced in 1920s Paris. VIP tickets get you special front row seats to this licensed 18+ event.
The Cabaret’s compère this year is multi-dimensional supernova, Ingrid Hansen, a wacky chick that knows how to crack a joke, wiggle a puppet, and play a ukulele. Known for her smash Fringe hits “Little Orange Man” and “Kitt and Jane,” Hansen is co-founder of SNAFU Dance Theatre and is a professional puppeteer for film and TV. Recently she hung out with Cookie Monster at Sesame Street and she regularly works with prisoners, children, and unsuspecting people wearing galoshes.
The Dolly Wiggler Cabaret is supported by the Puppet Slam Network, a brainchild of Jim Henson’s daughter Heather.
