Songs of the False Creek Flats

Sep 25, 2011



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


8:00 p.m.


Songs of the False Creek Flats was a collaborative performance by musician Veda Hille and architect Annabel Vaughan that used songs, images, and stories to explore the history and mythology of The Flats—a former tidal flat situated on the edge of present-day Strathcona.
Debuting in the Grand Luxe Hall, songs by Hille were accompanied by a visual narrative by Vaughn that presented the False Creek Flats through various views. Following the performance, audience members were given hand-drawn maps of False Creek with the invitation to take a self-directed walk and see this part of the city from a new perspective.
Presented in partnership with Theatre Replacement, with support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program.
