Protesting the Anti-Muslim Anti-Immigration protesters in Vancouver
August 19, 2017

Today's anti Muslim - anti immigration protest at City Hall was countered by an estimated 4,000 Vancouverites who believe in the value of inclusion.

Belarus Free Theatre combines forces with Pussy Riot’s Maria
Alyokhina in her...

Pi Theatre is excited to be the presenting partner for Haley McGee's I'm Doing This For You at the rEvolver Festival, and it opens tonight! 

Haley is a fantastic artist from Toronto, and to introduce her a bit more to Vancouver, Richard decided to ask her 10 questions. Check out her answers below and don't miss I'm Doing This For You running only until June 3rd.

1.     What is your greatest fear?
That love doesn’t exist for me.  That I’m poison to the people who love me. That what I’m contributing to the world is futile. 
 
2.     What calms you down?
Being around trees and looking at the sky.
 
3.     When are...
