This week in (gay) Vancouver is another mixed bag with plastic orchard factory, The Way Back to Thursdays and even a Grease Sing-A-Long.
Critically acclaimed contemporary dance company plastic orchid factory presents the work of Dora-nominated Montréal artist, Jacques Poulin-Denis, and his multi-disciplinary company, Grand Poney. The Value of Things (La valeur des choses) (Jun 17) is an evening of performance that blurs the lines between dance, theatre and a live music show.
Rob Kempson’s The Way Back to Thursdays (Jun 18-21) takes to the Revue Stage on Granville Island as part of In Tune, the biennial Vancouver event that develops and showcases new Canadian musicals. The song cycle tells the story of a grandmother and her gay grandson struggling to connect.
Calling all Greasers! The Heartwood Community Cafe is the place to be for Summer Lovin’: A Grease Sing-a-long (Jun 18). Put on your tight leather pants, your Pink Lady jackets and get ready to sing along with Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta and the rest of the gang from Rydell High.
