rEvolver Theatre Festival (early bird tickets)

rEvolver Festival is a yearly event designed to promote the work of up-and-coming performance artists in Vancouver. As stated on the organizer’s website, the festival offers “the full range of contemporary theatrical practice, from script-based theatre to devised and site-specific works, staged readings of work-in-progress, and in-depth discussions with artists.” The festival itself will take place from May 23 to June 3 at The Cultch, and will be made up of various performances spanning that time period. Some notable mainstage productions for this year’s festival include KITT & JANE: An Interactive Survival Guide to the Near-Post-Apocalyptic Future, The Saddest Girl at the Party, and Macbeth Muet.

     Early bird ticket prices will be on offer until April 15, so get your tickets sooner rather than later. While early bird prices are available, you can purchase a three-show pass for $40 and a six-show pass for $72.

Tickets can be purchased either through Upintheair Theatre or The Cultch’s websites.


Shaping Vancouver 2018: Contested Places

Presented by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement in collaboration with Heritage Vancouver, Conversation #1: The Complexity Of Places – The Heather Street Lands is the first in a series of discussions aimed at understanding the cultural significance of heritage sites for various peoples, as well as the various different meanings and histories attached to them. As expressed on SFU Woodward’s event page, this event seeks to start answering questions such as: “What are the different ways that this land is viewed and valued by people?” and “What can be done to help resolve conflicting values?” This discussion will take place at the Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre in the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street on May 10 from 7–9 p.m., and is free to attend.
