The Vertigo Series is proud to partner with the Meet in the Middle (MITM) curatorial team to host this event.

Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar | 1925 Victoria Ave

7:30 PM Doors open to the public for cocktails and conversation

8:00 PM Opening Remarks: Elizabeth Matheson (Strandline Curatorial Collective)

8:10 PM Musical Performance: Anna Ray Bagdasarian
Presented by Vertigo Reading Series
Anna Ray Bagdasarian
Anna Ray Bagdasarian is a musician and artist who is originally from Armenia and Israel. Her music is described as soulful, folky, and sometimes grungy. She will perform Prairie Song, an original composition co-written with her musical partner, Tara Dawn Solheim. The song mixes folk and country elements, offering a sound distinct from other songs that she has written or covered. Prairie Song is inspired by the life and the mood of Anna’s new home – Saskatchewan.

8:30 PM The Spirituality of Worry
Opening Performance by Celeste Snowber (Simon Fraser University)
Celeste Snowber threads dance, comedy and poetry to share stories of growing up with an Armenian mother, who had an eggplant soul. All of life, including vegetables, was stuffed with love, worry, trauma, wisdom and wonder. Resilience is borne where smells, textures and hues were the heaven of the new earth, and the scent of the old land. Celeste weaves the depth, absurdity and beauty of life through reforming notions of worry.

Join us following the event as we walk across the park for the Armenian Film Series 1 which begins 9:15pm Nov. 2, 2016 at the RPL Film Theatre / Dunlop Art Gallery.
