You can hate on the world for transitioning straight from Halloweentime to the Christmas craze, or maybe just accept that we’re extra grateful for excuses to celebrate nowadays. Especially if there’s baked goods involved. This week the Sweet Thea Holiday Pop-Up opens with an extra-tasty lineup of traditional holiday baking, salsas and guacamole, infused honeys, hand-crafted chocolates and more.
The “father of optical art” (or Op Art for short) has rolled into our city through a colour-happy exhibition of his abstract paintings. What exactly do they mean? You can draw your own conclusions or check out Uncommon Language, a simultaneous exhibit of local and international artists that critiques Vasarely’s work and pursuit of a “universal language.”
Tacofino and Beetbox have made a devilish deal this week, partnering to fold up some seitan burritos (think pumpkin-seed macha, cashew-lime crema, and white cucumber kimchi).

Though it’s on stage at the Firehall Arts Centre, In the Beginning isn’t your average theatre production—it’s more of a cultural sharing, and each night delves in to the stories and histories of Indigenous peoples (the events are called Over The Mountains, From The Waters, Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish). Created by Coast Salish/Dené artist Rosemary Georgeson and Firehall artistic producer Donna Spencer, this moderated “show” features stories of the land from Indigenous elders, knowledge keepers, and artists.
Get transported to the Netherlands through this online show, live from The Hague. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, dancemakers Alexander Ekman and Dimo Milev had to change up their approach to choerography quite a bit (but apparently kissing is still on the table?) for their worldwide stream. Called Dare to Say, this international show pushes boundaries—safely.
