CABARET FESTIVAL – Butt Kapinski – Artspace – 3.5K

By Peter Maddern

At the other end of the risk scale (to doing a tribute hour of Linda Ronstadt) is the high wire act of Butt Kapinski, private detective in his / her own film noir fantasy. Sporting a street light over her head and otherwise only armed with a lisp, Kapinski immerses her audience in the story of a murder, the search for clues and the mixing it with the high and low lifes of New York.

I doubt last night’s show was one  Kapinski would wish to remember – some buffoon took her on with cooking ‘woodles in a wok’ – but the potential is enormous provided there is fulsome audience indulgence in the twist and turns.

Maybe a challenge for Adelaide’s more traditional Cabaret Festival patrons but in a room of engaged punters this has the potential of being a golden hour – make sure you ready to play your ‘pwart.
