Following glorious stints in Toronto and New York, the Seattle-hatched Brand Upon the Brain!, by Winnipeg filmmaker Guy Maddin, is finally being presented here as it was originally conceived: as a lurid live spectacle. Tonight's show—featuring incest, crossdressing, a basement full of orphans, and a dastardly age-defying serum—will be narrated by Karen Black. All Foley sound will be created onstage by the Aono Jikken Ensemble, and the kitschy pinpoint stars of Cinerama's ceiling will twinkle overhead. Magic. (Cinerama, 2100 Fourth Ave, brownpapertickets.com. 8 pm, $25, all ages.)/p>
