December 2, 3 and 4th, 2011 will see the premiere performances of Shadow Catch: a new chamber opera featuring music by Dorothy Chang, T. Benton Roark, Jennifer Butler and Farshid Samandari. Set in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, a young runaway spends the night in Oppenheimer Park, and is visited by the spirits who inhabit it. Shadow Catch features an amazing cast of singers and truly wonderful and moving music — I’m honoured to be one of the three instrumental performers for this event. If you are in the Vancouver area, come see what has to be one of the most innovative projects I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. Check out the Shadow Catch blog to learn more.
Preston Buffalo’s “Pender St. Mushroom” has found its forever home at the QAF office (which is actually on Keefer St. 🤫). I’m so excited to have this work of Preston’s — which is also the cover image of my latest album. Thank you, Preston! 🍄🍄
I’m going to really miss this show. Senos de Hombre had its final day today at @queerarts SUM gallery: it was an exhibition that was cheeky, sexy, and fun while asking bigger, deeper questions about our bodies, our queerness, and our innate non-binary-ness. I’m deeply grateful to @ormo11, @laos__land, and @romeogomezlopez for trusting a complete stranger who visited @salonsilicon over a year ago, asking if they’d curate a show in Vancouver. And what a show they delivered: beautiful works by @_.alan_hernandez._ , @sandrablow.photo, @_karlfriasgarcia_ , and Romeo — plus a dildo-making workshop that folks here are still talking about.
