Our new Associate Artistic Director, Keltie Forsyth, is here and she's written a blog for us on her first full week in the office.

It’s raining in Vancouver, and I’m wishing I’d brought the big scarf that doubles as a shawl that my mother-in-law bought me last Christmas. It is chilly in the Pi offices – above the mixed martial arts studio on Gore street – now that fall has taken hold so completely. I also couldn’t be happier. It helps that I’m taking a break from pounding out a New Chapter grant application to write this post, but that isn’t really it.

I’m just so damn happy to be working in...

Two months in Dallas have flown by in a flurry of textbooks, economic theories and late nights. In my spare time I’ve been exploring the arts and culture scene as much as possible.

Here are some of the highlights so far:

1. Beethoven and Georgia O’Keefe in Dallas?

A tour of SMU’s special archives found us face to face with some awesome pieces of history. The collection, at the university’s fine arts library, is home to an original Beethoven score, a personal letter from Georgia O’Keefe, Oscar cards from the 1950s and Broadway show programs from the 1920s. The items in the special collection...

Long Division
September 20, 2016

Peter Dickinson is a playwright, literary critic and professor, and Pi is so excited to be bringing his new work, Long Division to the stage this November at Gateway Theatre in Richmond.

Not only has he been working away on draft after draft, but he spent last week with us and our artists trying out different pieces and even some movement with our choreographer Lesley Telford. 

While Long Division doesn't go back into rehearsals until the end of October, Peter had some thoughts about the experience and we want to share them!

Check out his blog here.

Even though our Associate Producer from last season, Linda Pitt, has left Pi to return to school, we're not letting her get away that easily! She's going to make us all jealous with her adventures while completing a Masters in International Arts Management!

Right now she's sweating out in the sun and studying in Dallas, Texas! She's still with us by distance, coordinating some social media and will be updating us every so often with news from her trip. Over the next year, she'll be studying in Dallas, Montral and Milan - with a week in Columbia too!

Stay tuned for more photos (like the one...

3 Reasons why attending Pi’s Sunday Soul Brunch is the best way to beat the end of summer blues:

The days are getting shorter, there’s a crispness (or maybe it’s a dampness) in the air, sitting on patios is now only for the brave and we’re on the other side of Labour Day. The end of summer blues are inevitable but we’re holding one rocking event to help ease you into Fall.

1. Brunch

Brunch is really a cure-all meal. Hungover? Go get some brunch. Just got dumped? Go for brunch. Woke up on the wrong side od bed? Brunch. Feeling the end of summer blues? You got it- brunch! Not to mention, The...

August 3, 2016

Hi – my name is Charissa and I’m excited to be here with the Pi Team for the summer! As a summer internship student, I’m working on development here at Pi, an area that I am eager to learn more about. I’m originally from Surrey, but in the fall, I’ll headed back to Oregon to complete my Masters in Arts Management with a focus in Performing Arts Management and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management at the University of Oregon. So far it has been great to be back in Vancouver for the summer (despite the rain) and I’m looking forward to what the rest of the summer holds!

We're excited to have...
