PULSE – DECEMBER 2017

Friday 01st, December 2017 / 07:05

YOLKS RESTAURANT & COMMISSARY
Yolks is located at 1598 East Hastings 

East Vancouver’s favourite breakfast joint has got itself some fresh digs, just up the street from their former location on Hastings and Clarke. Now at Hastings and Woodland, the new space spans almost 2,000 square feet and seats up to 100. Mmm… those perfectly poached egg bennies. Plan brunch now.

EAST VAN PANTO

Theatre Replacement is celebrating its fifth anniversary of East Van Panto this year with a roaring production of Snow White & the Seven Dwarves. In this adaptation, the panto — always taking a local angle — sees Snow White attempt to escape the evil Queen of North Vancouver, dancing with the PNE’s SuperDogs and befriending some ‘80s rock and rollers along the way.

HYPE! AN IMPROVISED HIP HOPERA
December 8 at Havana Theatre 

Instant Theatre Company is known well for its hilarious, razor sharp improv and with Hype!, the team combines Broadway and hip-hop to deliver likely the wittiest freestyling musical you’ve ever seen.

SHINY
December 6-9 at Left of Main

In collaboration with Maxine Chadburn and Rianna Svelnis, dancer and choreographer Kelly McInnes explores how chasing society’s impossible beauty standards can dangerously warp one’s sense of self in this poignant multidisciplinary performance. The piece was partly inspired by McInnes’ personal struggle with body image and eating disorders.

BIG JOY FESTIVAL
December 7-9 at Remington Gallery and Studio 

In its fifth and final year, this music festival celebrating the local and international experimental music scene will feature a wide selection of both new artists and favourite alumni. Look for never-before-heard material from SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL, as well as a live video feedback performance from Psychedelic Attack and a set from Kristen Roos.

CHINESE LANTERN FESTIVAL
December 15-January 21 at the PNE

This five-weeklong celebration of Chinese culture includes 35 spectacular lanterns, a variety of performances like folk dancing, plate spinning, and acrobatics, and food trucks where attendees can enjoy eats like dim sum.

EAST VAN CHOIR COLLECTIVE WISH FUNDRAISER

Three East Vancouver-based choirs — Kingsgate Chorus, ESCHOIR, and the Mount Pleasant Regional Institute of Sound — are bringing their voices together to raise funds for WISH, a Downtown Eastside drop-in centre for women involved in the street-based sex trade. The vocalists will be performing music by Sade, Sufjan Stevens, and more.

NO DRESS REHEARSAL: A TRIBUTE TO GORD DOWNIE
December 14 at Rio Theatre

Canada suffered a grand loss this year with the passing of Gord Downie, beloved frontman of the Tragically Hip. To celebrate both his life and his work, a handful of artists including Twin Bandit, TJ Dawe, and Bend Sinister’s Dan Moxon are gathering to pay tribute to their barstool bard. Partial proceeds of the event will benefit the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund.

NEW YEARS EVE TRIPLE HEADER
December 31 at the Comedy Mix 

Start your year off with laugh with local fave comedians Graham Clark, Dino Archie, and Simon King! Charlie Demers hosts, and there will be door prizes, party favours, and a champagne toast.

QUEER AS FUNK
December 31 at Wise Hall

Ring in the New Year with Vancouver’s most electrifying soul, Motown, and funk cover band as they celebrate with tunes from Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder to Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake. With horns, strings, percussion, and seriously rich vocals, the eight person-strong group — unique in our local LGBTQ community — maintains an ever-triumphant command of the genre.
