Vancouver’s favourite all-Asian drag family, House of Rice, is putting on a show at the Polygon this Thursday. It’s a fitting venue, since the North Van gallery’s latest exhibition (Interior Infinite) is all about artists who use costume, make-up and masquerade to express themselves. The special performance also includes a pop-up installation adjacent to the main exhibition (if you’re keeping track, that’s Interior Infinite, a pop-up and a drag show all by donation—cheap date alert).
When: Thursday August 19, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.Where: The Polygon GalleryCost: By donationMore Info: thepolygon.ca
To celebrate the launch of new unisex pyjama line Kip Sleepwear, the silk sleepwear company is throwing a four-day party. The theme? Clouds. And despite the cozy vibes, the launch won’t put you to sleep: they’re stocked up with goodies from Buttermere Patisserie to keep up your blood sugar. Think mousse cake, pavlova and macarons—all shaped like clouds, of course.
When: Thursday August 19 to Sunday August 22Where: Shangri-La PlazaMore Info: instagram.com

If you can score tickets, you’ll be outfitted in a headset and sat in a swivel chair for the show, so you can take in every angle of the “extraordinary migration of Pacific salmon on a city bridge.”
When: Wednesday August 17 to Saturday August 28Where: šxʷƛ̓exən Xwtl’a7shn Plaza next to Queen Elizabeth theaterCost: Free, must register in advanceMore Info: uninterrupted.ca

Called Stalkaya: Ḵ’elhmáy̓/X̱ápay̓ay, this new free North Vancouver art exhibition allows you to step into the forest—some 11 thousand years ago. You can watch a 360-degree immersive film called SANCTUARY from inside a geodesic dome, and see artwork by Tsawaysia Spukwus and Sesemiya Williams. If you don’t want to brave the bridge traffic, SANCTUARY is also playing every Friday through Sunday at MOA.
