“Theatre with a serotonin kick” PLANK Magazine
“A charming combination of inspiration and technique” – The Georgia Straight
“. . .Sheer joyous magic to behold. . . the kind of inventive, affecting, heartfelt and unique storytelling that you normally only dream about…Victoria, you should be proud of this one.” – The Visitorium

Fourteen-year-old social-rejects (and possible geniuses) Kitt and Jane host an interactive survival guide to the post-apocalyptic future. Kitt & Jane is a sequel to the highly acclaimed Little Orange Man, seen at the 2011 Victoria Fringe Festival.
Kitt is “the sort of girl that director Terry Gilliam might have dreamed up.” (The Calgary Herald)
SNAFU creates original live performances both collectively and through director-driven creation. Their work is inspired by Viewpoints (a creation practice that provides a vocabulary for thinking about and acting upon movement and gesture), Butoh (an avant garde performance art that has its origins in Japan in the 1960′s), found-object puppetry, storytelling, clown, ritual, fables, politics, children, history, and lore.
SNAFU’s previous plays include CHALK, Ginger Ninjas, BLiNK (“Best Dance Production in 2007″ Monday Magazine M Awards, “Favourite Physical/Dance Show” Pick-of-The-Fringe) and Pretty Little Instincts (Victoria’s Critic’s Choice Awards “Best Fringe Show of 2009″, “Most Innovative Show” Pick-of-The-Fringe, “Favourite Physical/Dance Show” Pick-of-The-Fringe). Ingrid Hansen was voted “Victoria’s Favourite Choreographer” by Monday Magazine M Awards.
