Coastal Jazz presents Winterruption at Performance Works on Granville Island Feb 24-26. It is the seventh annual, truly unique Vancouver winter festival. The magic is in the mix as we once again celebrate our local and international artists of all disciplines.
There is food, arts, kids stuff along with music and performances by Michael Bernard Fitzgerald with special guests Acres of Lions, Aidan Knight with special guests The Belle Game, Celso Machado, and 3 others.
Artists and artisans fill the galleries, nooks and crannies of Granville Island. There are exhibitions and open studios around every corner! ReVision at the Creekhouse is exhibiting recycled, salvaged, or found materials transformed into amazing art! Dalbergia Wood + Fine Objects Studio in Railspur Alley is presenting Woodenough, a wood exhibition, sharing techniques and exploring new frontiers in the world of wood. Continuing Studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design is offering a behind-the-scenes tour of the University as well as a Drop-In Life Drawing workshop.
The Island is alive with theatre and dance. Visit the Granville Island Stage where the Arts Club Theatre Company is presenting Intimate Apparel, a richly textured love story by Lynn Nottage. Or expect the unexpected as some of Vancouver’s favourite dancers pop up in unusual spaces all over the Island.
