Great stuff to do in Vancouver this weekend

Love thy Lunar new year parade! And other manifestations of love in the City of Singles ...

Ah, the (in)glorious Valentine’s - or Single Awareness - day. Meh, whatever. There’s so much more to this weekend in Vancouver than just roses, bubbly and mandatory sweet talk. Here’s how: skip your lunch break today and hurry up to raise awareness for violence against women, see the FUSE returnhear artists speaking out and spinning against injustice, embrace your singleness and attend Jason Bryan’s first novel release titled City of Singles (yes, it’s Vancouver we’re talking about), do NOT miss the best dance party you’ll ever make out at (you can thank us later), check out Science World in adult after hours, and of course, do not miss the traditional 40th Vancouver Chinatown Spring Festival and Parade.



Global Dance Connections: Body-Scan: Sweet Gyre (Kelly’s Pick)
Feb 14-16 | 8PM | Scotiabank Dance Centre - 677 Davie St | $20-$30

Body-Scan: Sweet Gyre is choreographed and performed by Montreal's Benoît Lachambre and battery opera's Su-Feh Lee, two exceptional artists renowned for pushing the boundaries of contemporary dance with work that is fearless, intellectually rigorous and absorbing. Following on from their 2008 ensemble piece BodyScan, this new duet explores the human body as a porous conduit through which our personal and collective history, memory and desires pass, and features images by New York photographer Robert Flynt and live music by Juno Award-winning musician and composer Jesse Zubot. I’ll be catching it on Friday to see the post-show artist talkback!

Fuse: Co-Mix (Miraj’s pick)
Feb 15 | 8PM - 1AM | Vancouver Art Gallery | Free (Members) or $17.50
