Ballet BC’s very first livestreamed show wraps up this week—catch it before it’s gone. Reaching U is the company premier of artistic director Medhi Walkerski’s “GARDEN” (pictured above), a poetic performance that reflects on the musical conversation between piano and strings.
Western Canada’s largest lens-based festival returns to celebrate clicking cameras across the country (and the folks behind them, of course). Check out Still Vancouver at the Kurbatoff Gallery—the exhibition by local photographer Gregory Geipel highlights the unassuming resilience of our city’s oldest, coolest buildings.
This year, the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival’s culinary event is virtual (but don’t worry, the food is real). A ticket to Sakura at Home gets you plugged in to the night’s performances—including dance, poetry and a short film—with the option to add on a special sakura-themed takeout crafted by top chefs from one of 6 restaurants. Options include Wild Origins, Burdock & Co., Nootka Marine Adventures resorts, Salmon n’ Bannock (pictured above), Vij’s Restaurant and Miku Waterfront.
One pandemic plus? We can attend author Eden Robinson’s live event even though it’s put on by the Vancouver Island Public Library. (Zoom, baby!) The Trickster author will be chatting about her work and reading from her latest book, Return of the Trickster. The Trickster trilogy is a magic-realist adventure story that navigates the complications of family, social pressure, substance abuse, and poverty through the eyes of a Haisla teen.
Boulevard’s meal kits have video instructions starring Chef Alex Chen—it’s a masterclass-esque experience. On this weekend’s menu is Dungeness crab caesar salad, peppercorn crusted NY steak and apricot caramel mousse for dessert.
