Jean et Béatrice / Until Sun, Apr 5 (8 pm)
Beatrice has posted an ad in the paper: a reward to anyone who can free her from a self-imposed solitude on the 33rd floor of an apartment complex. She has three specific conditions—interest her, engage her emotions and seduce her—and Jean et Béatrice, Carol Fréchette’s Governor General Award-nominated script, picks up when someone shows up to make an attempt. The play is en français, with English subtitles, which works better than you think it does.  (La Cité Francophone)

Dirt Buffet Cabaret /  Thu, Apr 2 (8 pm)
From Mile Zero Dance’s new studio space comes a new monthly cabaret series dedicated to anything-goes experimental art. The Dirt Buffet Cabaret burdens its acts with only one rule: nobody gets more than 10 minutes. That offer of artistic freedom has intrigued, for the Cabaret‘s first incarnation, the likes of Aboriginal hoop dancer and Cirque du Soleil alumnus Arik Pipestem and Edmonton’s poet laureate Mark Pinkoski, among myriad others. (Mile Zero Dance’s Spazio Performativo [10816 – 95 St], $10, but nobody will be refused for lack of funds)
