Explore geographic areas included in the Maraya project in this intimate performance of an original song cycle by local folk musician and city singer Veda Hille, accompanied by a visual narrative by Annabel Vaughan (intern architect and city thinker). The work and performance animate a vast area of the city that currently lies dormant — The False Creek Flats.
Veda and Annabel have been looking into the history and mythology of False Creek with the aim of presenting a fresh look at the area in music, talk, and pictures. Audience members will also be given a hand-drawn artist map in order to take themselves on a local walk after the show, at their leisure.
Songs of the False Creek Flats offers a natural complement to the MOV Studio exhibition, Maraya, where visitors are invited to view the remarkable similarities between Vancouver's False Creek and Dubai (United Arab Emirates). Learn more about the Maraya Project., which opens Feb. 29 at the MOV, at http://museumofvancouver.ca/ or http://marayaprojects.com/
