Instead of large-scale performances, the Dance Centre is streaming all kinds of shows in different genres for a limited time. The online performances include chats with directors and choreographers, giving viewers a bit of behind-the-scenes (behind the screens?) knowledge. On now is Shot of Scotch, a local highland dance team that’s pretty much guaranteed to give you major calf muscle envy.

We’ve all been scrolling through old photos reminiscing the precedented times—but some of us a bit more artistically than others. Artist David Wilson has turned the nostalgia we all feel for pre-COVID Vancouver into a series of gorgeous acrylic paintings, and you can view them in-person starting this week. The exhibition includes the Stanley theatre’s grand marquee, a thriving Granville strip, and other vibrant (if rainy) snapshots of our unsuspecting city.

Leave it to designers to make the most beautiful pandemic pivot. Vancouver’s Interior Design Show begins this Thursday, and the killer lineup features designers from here (like Karin Bohn, pictured above) and around the world. Get a little taste of everything at IDS 360, a series of video Q and As, product launches, and studio tours. And don’t miss our sister publication Western Living‘s Designers of the Year Awards on October 8.

Rob Teszka will take you on a journey of failure at this one-man magic show. His 10-plus years of experience in the world of magic have given him plenty of insight into the psychology of illusions (successful or not) and he’s ready to share them live as part of the 2020 Vancouver Fringe Festival. The audience for this show will be distanced, and masks are strongly encouraged (could there be anything more embarrassing then explaining to the CDC that you gave someone COVID-19 at a magic show)?
