  • Chan Centre presents 2019/20 Beyond Words Series

The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia (UBC) announces its 2019/20 series, featuring empowering narratives from marginalized communities, vibrant exaltations of multiculturalism, and breathtaking musicality in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. Just announced is the 2019/20 Beyond Words series, featuring four heartrending interdisciplinary performances that affirm the importance of diversity in storytelling.

The 2019/20 Beyond Words series includes:

HUFF
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 12pm + 7:30pm
This brutally honest, darkly comic one-man performance dives into the lives of three Indigenous siblings caught in a maelstrom of institutional prejudice and abuse. Performed by award-winning playwright Cliff Cardinal, the work centres on the aftermath of their mother’s death as the brothers navigate a world flanked by the mythical figure of the Trickster.

TRADER TIME
Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at 7:30pm
Long-term collaborators Ivan Coyote and Sarah MacDougall present their latest multidisciplinary work, Trader Time. Made up of a series of interrelated vignettes based on a local Whitehorse buy-and-sell radio show, the performance blends together the sights and sounds of a haunting, hilarious, and familiar small town with big politics.

BLACK LIKE ME: AN EXPLORATION OF THE WORD N-----
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 7:30pm + Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 12pm
Innovative dance artist and choreographer Jade Solomon Curtis uses African, jazz, tap, ballet, musical theatre, and club dance vocabularies to investigate the reverberations of a single word across the global landscape.

RIDGE
Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 7:30pm
Award-winning writer, musician, and slam poet Brendan MacLeod confronts the misconceptions and misunderstandings of the now-famed Battle at Vimy Ridge, in which more than 10,000 Canadian casualties were recorded. This theatrical performance raises still-relevant and poignant questions about the reality of war and how and why we grieve.

CHAN CENTRE CONNECTS SERIES
The Chan Centre proudly complements their presentations with a thought-provoking outreach series, Chan Centre Connects.
