If you are missing coming to the Firehall, you have three days left to catch the Rice & Beans exhibition, yellow objects! This installation work has been wowing those visiting with its innovative story telling, sans actors, and is one of the most exciting pivots made during this COVID time. Click HERE to learn more about yellow objects!
But, you will be back sitting in our theatre seats soon! With Tuesday’s press announcement by Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister Dix we were thrilled to hear the Firehall will be able to bring audiences and artists together again for LIVE performances in the near future. And by September, we may even be back to some kind of new normal in the performing arts sector. We will kick off a full 2021-2022 season of theatre, dance, music and more in late September and have our fingers crossed that from then on it will be smooth sailing. It will be fabulous to have artists back in the studio and theatre rehearsing, eating their lunch in the green room and sharing their talents on stage with eager-to-see-them audiences. Watch for the premiere of Chapter 21 at last, R.A. Shiomi’s Yellow Fever, the premiere of Manami Hara’s Courage Now, and much much more. With this season we will celebrate artistically the challenges, the hopes and the resilience of individuals through theatrical stories and choreographies created and shared by some of British Columbia’s most talented artists.
