Take a PechaKucha journey into the world of performing arts

By on November 15, 2014


The World’s a Stage, the 8th volume of PechaKucha Night Richmond, will explore the impact and influence of performing arts on artists, audiences and communities on Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Richmond Cultural Centre, 7700 Minoru Gate. The event is free and suitable for all ages.

Performing arts encompasses diverse disciplines – from traditional and non-traditional forms of dance, music and theatre to experimental and experiential art. Socially interactive performances, participatory mixed-media installations, flash mobs and pop-up interventions have the capacity to spark public participation and challenge the way we experience public spaces in our everyday lives.

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where speakers present 20 images, for 20 seconds each, while sharing thought provoking ideas and stories. Volume 8 guest presenters include:

• Anna Kraulis, Art for Impact
• Camyar Chaichian, Richmond Arts Centre, City of Richmond
• Carmen Rosen, Still Moon Arts Society
• Jaspal Marwah, Vancouver Public Space Network
• Julie Lebel, Community Dance
• Laura Lee Cole, Loco Moto Art
• Maggie Winston, Lost and Found Puppet Co.
• Mark Haney, Little Chamber Music Series
• Ruth McIntosh, Gateway Theatre
• Stephen Robb, Richmond Delta Youth Orchestra

Over 700 cities around the world hold PechaKucha events and Richmond is a designated PechaKucha city. For more information, visit www.pechakucha.org.
