This week we explore the assumptions of gender in traditional male-centric sports, share a few laughs at Vancouver’s Sketchfest, and welcome back The Brat Pack.
The appropriately named truth and beauty studio & gallery presents an exhibition of photographs from Berlin-based photographer Sophie Kirchner. In Male Sport (opening night Jan 14), Kirchner challenges the assumptions of gender in traditional male-centric sports.
The Vancouver Sketch Comedy Fest (Jan 14-16) returns for a third year featuring some of your favourite sketch comedy groups from across North America. Three days of hilarity include performances from some of our community’s comedy favourites including Morgan Brayton and The Ryan & Amy Show (photo above).
The Brat Pack (Jan 14) – Valynne Vile, Jane Smoker, Shanda Leer, Jem & Gia Metric – are back at The Junction for another season of hilarious bitchy banter, wild and crafty performances, intoxicating audience games and outrageously fashionable looks.
