Dance, music and video games dominate another eclectic week here on the Wet Coast, as we present our picks for the next seven days.
Talk about being culturally diverse … Me So You So Me (Feb 25-Mar 2) seems perfectly suited against Vancouver’s multi-cultural landscape fueled by Japanese historical and pop culture, classical Indian tabla rhythms and cartoons. This new work from David Raymond & Tiffany Tregarthen reveals projections of the self through the eyes of a partner, the dynamic of a couple, and the music of experimental Japanese percussionist Asa Chang.
Agent C and Top Secret presents Blues for the Band (Feb 27), a fund-raising event for the Rainbow Concert Band. A band helping fundraise for another band? It is all in Agent C and Top Secret philosophy of the transformative power of music and its ability to create bridges, friendships and safe havens. And what better and deserving combination of music and safe havens than Vancouver’s only LGBTQ concert band.
Celebrate your inner geek as The Vancouver Gaymers, a social club for queer gamers and their allies, celebrates its Fifth Anniversary (Feb 28) with dinner, board games, some Wii gaming on the big screen and even a little karaoke.
Here are a couple more events we’re also excited about this week:
- The Mousetrap (Feb 28-Mar 2) – Western Gold Theatre presents the staged reading of this Agatha Christie classic that has been entertaining audiences in London’s West End non-stop for over 60 years.
- Decadence (Feb 28) – Join the Vancouver Pride Society for a Mardi Gras Grand Fete, an
evening of burlesque and dancing, with some of Vancouver’s top performers, including Diamond Mix, Nicky Ninedoors, Burgundy Brixx, Misty Edge, Veronica Vex and April O’Peel.
