EAST VAN’S CULTURAL CORNERSTONE—ON THREE STAGES

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR HEATHER REDFERN

With three theatrical venues, a gallery, and various secondary spaces in the heart of East Vancouver, The Cultch is one of Vancouver’s most diverse and innovative cultural hubs, offering dynamic contemporary programming in theatre, dance, music, and the visual arts and bringing world-class cultural presentations to thousands.

In 2017–18, The Cultch renews its commitment to bringing diverse shows to its stages by continuing to make its Democratizing our Stages project a priority. Executive Director Heather Redfern says this project “is about not only diversifying the work on the stage but also bringing diverse audiences into all of the spaces to experience that work.” To this purpose, The Cultch will continue to present powerful local performances as well as groundbreaking international shows.

Highlights of the 2017–18 season include new works by all-time Cultch favourites, such as Theatre Replacement’s East Van Panto: Snow White & the Seven Dwarves, VACT’s 1 Hour Photo, Old Trout Puppet Workshop’s Underland, and Ronnie Burkett’s Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre. The lineup also includes innovative offerings from around the globe, including Hot Brown Honey, Black Boys, and Encounter.

 

Consistently rich theatre…surprises and delights us in ways we could never anticipate.
–Peter, The Cultch Patron
