This Queer podplay uses the history of Vancouver’s West End as a backdrop for a modern, playful, and endearing story. PodPlays are site–specific radio plays that take participants on a walk through the geography of the city and the urban obsessions and imaginings of the commissioned artists. Much like you would listen to an audio guide in a museum, audience members borrow portable media players and are guided on a walk by narration that combines story, music and directional cues. This is an intimate theatrical experience that will reveal a Vancouver you won’t find in the tourist brochures.
