A community arts project led by Laura Barron & Wen Wen (Cherry) Lu

What if we could spread gratitude instead of fear? The Infectious Gratitude project invited community to express their appreciation for local assets (including businesses, services, green spaces) in creative ways (including poetry, drawings, stories). Their heartfelt urban love letters are documented on flags displayed here, as on-site installations throughout the city, and on a customized digital map. More than 200 people took part in six pop-up events throughout the summer of 2021, demonstrating a community need to create, connect and share.

This site-specific work mixes Virtual Reality and live theatre to create a powerful, even transformative, experience. One by one, viewers are greeted by the mysterious Violette and invited into her apartment. There awaits a 360° story world—one realistic enough to convince, magical enough to enchant, and dark enough to serve as a shadowy likeness of our own shared reality.

Co-presented with Realwheels Theatre and Théâtre la Seizième

A Roundhouse partnership with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival

February to April

A climate change arts residency with youth

This residency invites youth to take back the narrative of climate change through multi-media storytelling. The climate crisis is happening here and now. Youth explore fiction scriptwriting to tell their stories in preparation for a 48-hour film production challenge. Guided by a team of writers and filmmakers invested in the idea that we need new stories to help us navigate the uncertainty and chaos of the climate crisis, giving us the courage to act.

A Vancouver Park Board Residency project with TV writer Carmiel Banasky and filmmakers Paolo Davanzo and Lisa Marr of Echo Park Film Centre North from Moberly Park Fieldhouse.
