Director Sarah Faye Bernstein produced a one-week run of a terrific play (the title of which was all-but-undisclosed) in her apartment, with superb performances from Anjela Magpantay, Carmine Santavenere, and Jamie Taylor, and excellent technical work by Daniel O’Shea, Annie Therrien-Boulos, Nancy Tam, and Clinton Ackerman. Bernstein’s energy, discipline, and willingness to work outside-the-lines seem to represent an important and promising trend in the city’s emerging art scene. With access to proper venues limited, more-and-more young artists are availing themselves of unconventional spaces and producing their own shows.

An exceptionally smart show is currently running at Access Gallery in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Work by Guadalupe Martinez, Katherine Soucie, and Tommy Ting take-on Vancouver’s racialized labour history, as well as the relationship between industrial labour practices and the rapidly evolving post-industrial urban context.
