The Red Lake Family Entertainment Series hosted The Kiff Kiff Sisters Show at the Red Lake-Madsen Public School this past weekend.
Ninety people attended the Saturday show. The sisters are bilingual and preformed the show for the audience in French and English simultaneously. The Kiff Kiff Sisters show was booked as part of the regional family entertainment groups line up, and preformed in multiple communities in Northwestern Ontario.
“It was a hit I’d say, the kids had a blast and so did the adults,” board member Renee Bausch said.
The Kiff Kiff Sisters are identical twins and performers from Quebec City. They had completed studies at the Conservatory of Music and over the past several years have been doing street performances in more than 15 countries. They have worked for several Canadian organizations including the Theatre de l’Aubergine, Cirque du Soleil, as well as many international festivals.
The Kiff Kiff Sisters shows include acrobatics, classic comedy and lots of audience participation. They preformed their show Jam Side Up which included a picnic, a flying bunny and balloons so big, the performers actually got inside of them.
The entertainment series had first booked the Kiff Kiff Sisters before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but one of the sisters had taken maternity leave and had to reschedule. With this being the first season back after COVID, organizers were able to rebook the show.
The sisters currently have two other shows: Returns Department and The Billy-croquettes. They had expressed interest in returning to the Red Lake area, and Renee says there is a definite possibility of their return in the future.
“The girls were just so lovely, and their show was just so fun,” Bausch said.
