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). Maraya: The Seawalls of Vancouver and Dubai, is on view at the Museum of Vancouver between February 29 - May 20, 2012.
