Are you ready to board a cruise ship to another galaxy?
Throughout April, downtown Vancouver’s FanClub is transforming itself into a “Space Cruise.” Confused? Don’t worry – This requires a little explaining.
Space Cruise, according to event organizers, is a “charmingly campy Caribbean cruise meets Star Trek, with a hint of Cirque du Soleil and more than its share of sexy.” Think of it as interactive theatre for grownups, staged inside a cavernous nightclub on Granville Street.
Step inside the doors of the FanClub and you’ll find all the trappings of a cruise ship. Your cruise hostess will help you to your seat and prepare you for the voyage ahead. Meanwhile – mainly to add to the general absurdity – burlesque dancers will take the stage, while a live band rocks away in the background. And did I forget to mention there’s a trapeze artist as well, swinging from the ceiling in a skimpy outfit?
