The Vancouver International Dance festival returns virtually this year with 18 livestreamed contemporary dance performances. Catch Hourglass by Ne Sans Opera and Dance this Thursday (bring on the sad clowns!) and mark your calendar for In Search of the Holy Chop Suey by Toronto’s Yvonne Ng in May—it’s a larger-than-life show inspired by the movements of everything from Ng’s own mother to kung fu legends.

Virtual Humanity allows anyone to “check out” a human (like a book at a library) and chat about their life experiences, culture and beliefs.

We’re predicting a sold-out run, so make your reso soon.
