Montreal-based Rubberband dance company’s 2020 show was the first Dancehouse cancelled because of the pandemic, so it’s fitting that it’s also the first one they’re bringing back to live audiences. Ever So Slightly combines “capoeira and b-boy style;” it’s a high-energy performance you’ll want to ooh and ahh over.
When: Thursday October 21 to Saturday October 23, shows at 8:00 p.m.Where: Vancouver PlayhouseCost: From $35More Info: dancehouse.ca
The Vancouver Writers Fest is back in hybrid form with workshops, panels and readings from authors from here and beyond. You can find packed lineup here: for some local literary stars, check out the Power of Comics panel with Hiromi Goto, Gord Hill and Aminder Dhaliwal and the Home Truths panel with Jen Sookfong Lee and Lois Peterson.

After successful summer collabs with other local restaurants, Coho Coffee is putting on an event that’s not just about eating (although there will be food trucks present, don’t worry). The first maker’s market is this Saturday, and features women-led jewellery and home goods brands including Seluna Creative, Paige Dress, Feminine Statement, Enso Herbals, Liv Homewares and L’Atelier Wildbirds (pictured above).

The Arts Umbrella’s annual art auction and gala is this weekend, and online tickets are still available. For a remote experience, it’s pretty sweet—a livestream of the event, home catering delivery with cocktails, dedicated phone bidding, and an invitation to a Pendulum Gallery private tour. There’s work from almost 100 local and international artists (including the piece by Dana Claxton pictured above) available. The event proceeds benefit youth arts education across Metro Vancouver.
When: Saturday October 23, 6:00 p.m.Where: The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and onlineCost: From $400More Info: artsumbrella.com
It’s cozy season, and if you’re looking to update your linens (and not play a guessing game of is-this-actually-comfy while shopping online) you can head over to Once a Tree—they’re hosting a pop-up with Au Lit Fine Linens until the end of November. They’re the only retailer in Canada carrying an exclusive collection, so this is your only change to touch before buying.
