Vancouver on the Cheap: Show and Tell


If you were to create a Venn diagram where one circle was labeled “cheap” and the other labeled “awesome”, the middle point where they cross over could be labeled “Vancouver on the Cheap”. In other words, this is a weekly series on things to do and places to go in Vancouver that fall into that magical category of being both cheap and awesome.

It’s show and tell! For grown-ups! And it’s free!

Xua Xua Productions is the company that brought The Confessional 2.0 last summer, and this is another low-cost (or rather, no cost) event they’ve got coming up. It’s a night of show and tell where the audience is instructed to come bearing an object that has meaning to them. Then they get up, share the story of the object, and then (the best part) the audience gets to ask them questions. About anything that has sparked their interest from the person’s story. The result is an evening where strangers get to know something new about each other. It’s a bi-monthly event, held at Cocoanymph East.

One thing that’s good to note: while this is an audience-participation, group-storytelling event, it’s still a show which means you’ve got to come on time. They also have very limited seating available, so it’s best to register in advance here. Oh, and there’s a bar with $4 beer and wine!
