Published on 13.. A world-renowned festival of performing arts for young audiences, the Vancouver International Children s Festival has been educating, entertaining and inspiring young audiences since 1978.. The 36th annual event, takes place May 27 – June 2 on Granville Island.. Professional performing artists from Norway, Africa, Germany and Canada will be performing12 shows in six Granville Island venues , including four indoor and two outdoor Festival environments.. In addition, the Festival hosts over 15 hands-on arts activities such as shadow puppetry, an outdoor weaving sculpture, bicycle spin-art, origami, a sock puppet workshop, circus skills, the Twist Toddle play area and much, much more.. Wow, there really is so much going on, it hard to decide what you should do.. So at R2R we have decided to give you a helping hand and pick our TOP 5 TIPS for Vancouver International Children s Festival.. Here we go.. Tip 1 – QUEEN OF COLOURS.. This play stood out to us as it uses shadow puppetry and as you may recall we had Mere Phantoms media artists at R2R this year with their interactive shadow installations.. They left us with a curiousity to discover more of this art and this play fits the bill.. This enchanting world-wide hit has delighted audiences across the globe.. Loosely based on Jutta Bauer s children s book, the play uses a blend of shadow puppetry, live music, painting, and video projection to create a magical event for young.. Here a bossy, bored little queen lives in a monochromatic universe until the court painter, using audience requests, injects a painterly palette into her drab world revealing the emotional resonance of colour.. imagine an animated picture book being assembled on the fly a remarkable accomplishment” ~Andy Probst, theatremania.. Festival web page for more details.. http://www.. childrensfestival.. ca/festival_events/performances/performances43.. php.. *For more Shadow Play check out the Exploration Zone and explore the magic of light through sound, movement and play using shadow puppets.. TIP 2 – JAMES HILL – UKULELE MAGIC.. Zooey Deschanel plays one.. So do William H.. Macy and Mr.. Schuester on Glee.. Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder accompanies himself exclusively on one for his recent albums, Ukulele Songs.. Meanwhile, every third TV commercial seems to feature a soundtrack of a strumming ukulele.. With the Ukulele enjoying a surge in popularity in recent years and being a brilliant instrument for kids to learn, this show should be a delightful musical treat.. Barely in his 30s, ukulele master James Hill has four genre-bending albums to his name and a fan-base that spans the globe.. The Honolulu Star-Bulletin calls him  ...   the heroes of their own stories.. Films include:.. Camp.. by Tomasz Jeziorski, Poland, 2012, 19 mins G..

THE MOSUO SISTERS.. Marlo Poras | China/USA | 2012 | 110 mins incl.. panel discussion.. Suitable for Grade 8-12 students | G.. Monday May 6, 2013 | 12:30PM | VIFF’s Vancity Theatre.. The Mosuo people in China make up one of the last matriarchal societies in the world.. Juma (25) and Latso (22) are sisters from a remote Mosuo village tucked away in the foothills of the Himalayas.. The film follows the sisters as they navigate their way through two parallel worlds: China’s changing economy and Mosuo tradition.. When the sisters move to Beijing, to take jobs in the entertainment industry, their understanding of the world undergoes a profound shock.. As one sister says, “I felt like a tiny grain of sand.. ” The scale of the city is like nothing they have seen before.. Even the idea of apartment dwelling confounds the sisters.. When they first arrive they think that each skyscraper tower is a single dwelling, only to discover the homes are divided up like an enormous beehive.. Just as they’re settling in, the economic downturn of 2009 forces Juma and Latso to postpone their dreams of higher education and modern jobs, and return to their village.. Determined to keep their family out of poverty, Latso agrees to stay home to help their mother on the farm, while Juma heads back to the city to make money as a singer.. Juma learns to protect herself from gangsters and other wealthy bar dwellers and Latso gives up her dream of education to take on hard labour and child rearing.. Whether it’s breathing in the dusty air of farm life or the second-hand smoke of cocktail lounges, both lifestyles carry their own set of challenges.. “Staying at home, or leaving.. They are both hard,” says Latso.. The burden these women must bear takes its toll on their relationship.. Despite their disagreements and disappointments, what keeps these sisters strong, is their open communication and unquestionable loyalty.. After all, as Juma says, “The family you are born into is the most important thing in all life.. ” –SC.. Trailer.. http://vimeo.. com/49598580.. FEATURED SPEAKER AT PANEL DISCUSSION.. GRAHAM JOHNSON is Professor of Sociology Emeritus at UBC, where he taught for 36 years until his retirement.. His professional focus was on China, in particular the study of migration..

Graham travelled extensively in China for 40 years, including the areas where many of China`s minority peoples live.. THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE.. Liz Marshall | Canada | 2013 | 120 mins including panel discussion.. Suitable for Grade 8-12 students | PG Scene of animal slaughter.. Friday, May 10, 2013 | 12:30PM | VIFF’s Vancity Theatre.. Humans have cleverly separated animals into three categories: domestic pets, wildlife and the ghosts in our machine.. The latter are those animals who suffer at the helm of global industries.. This film follows internationally renowned photographer Jo- Anne McArthur as she travels around the world documenting the lives of these animals.. The result is a cinematic portrait of the ghosts who keep the machine of the modern world running.. Caged foxes, lab monkeys and beagles bred for research are just some of the ghosts Jo-Anne encounters on her journey.. Part investigation and part art-project, her goal is to change the way we view our relationships with animals.. “I’m not there to liberate them, I’m there to document them,“ she says.. “As much as I’d like to liberate them from their cages, my role is to educate people so there won’t be future generations of these animals.. ”.. Although careful not to evoke individual guilt, Jo-Anne’s photos are as disturbing as they are beautiful.. The Ghosts in Our Machine makes it clear that the human/animal relationship is, indeed, the next big hurdle in our social and moral development.. Avoiding the typical handheld camera activist aesthetic, the images are patient, simply resting on the eyes of each animal that Jo-Anne encounters.. Beautifully composed photographs and the minimal score allow for a filmic space much needed to reflect on the question haunting our collective conscience.. Animals: property or sentient beings? -SC.. com/59741668.. FEATURED SPEAKERS AT PANEL DISCUSSION.. Toronto-based filmmaker LIZ MARSHALL, director, writer and producer of The Ghosts in Our Machine.. KELLY DAVIDSON, animal lover and shop manager at a Vancouver LUSH Cosmetics store.. Motivated to make change, in the summer of 2012 Kelly embarked on the ‘Ghost Free Journey,’ a customized vegan lifestyle challenge designed to inspire and educate a broad demographic about the value of becoming a conscious consumer.. ___________________________________________________________________________..
