Program Description & Details

As the sun sets, an old man and his noble tent go wandering into the wild. Swept up in a surreal epic Western, he is on the run from a mysterious tracker who is bent on hunting him down!

Created by the same team that brought the hit (and sold out!) show The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer to the 2015 PuSh Festival, It's Dark Outside is another great adventure.

It's Dark Outside uses a creative and ever-surprising blend of live performance, puppetry, animation and an original music score. The performers tell the story of an old man chasing his memories as they escape into the wild "with poetic insight and lightness of touch that makes it moving and uplifting to watch" (The Australian).

The Vancouver International Children's Festival and the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival are delighted to be able to present this beautiful and captivating production.

Program Description & Details

We offer a custom version of our walking tour, The Forbidden Tour – specially adapted for school groups – that provides an interactive forum for students to learn about BC and Canadian social history through Vancouver’s past. The tour recounts the results of the temperance movement’s push to make BC liquor-free in the early 20th century. Their successful campaign in 1917 made Vancouver a dry city. But only in theory. In reality, the city was overwhelmed by illicit activity, including bootlegging, gambling and vice. The tour charts the influence of women’s rights, religious fervour, war, corruption and crime on the city’s morals during a time of huge economic growth. Lasting between 90 minutes and 2 hours, the walking tour makes a unique field trip for any secondary-level student group: the tour discusses the effects of WWI on Canadian society; puts a human face on the pre- and inter-war periods in Vancouver; explores Canadian prohibition and involvement of Canada in later U.S. Prohibition; discovers the role of women in social, political, and economic change through the temperance and women’s suffrage movements; visits some of the most historically significant buildings and places in Vancouver, including the Hotel Victorian, Dominion Building, Sun Tower, Shanghai Alley, Carrall Street, Hastings Street, and Water Street; discusses the race riots of 1907, including the events leading to it and the aftermath for Chinese and Japanese people in Vancouver; draws parallels in contemporary attitudes toward drug prohibition and poverty with social issues and remedies of the early 20th century.
