The Arts Report – Aug 31st 2011


On today’s show…

Vogville Presents: Matinee
Looking for something that’s different from the musical reality shows on Much and MTV? “Vogville Presents” is a new monthly webisode series from Vogville Recording that documents a single-day recording session with a experienced producer for chosen musical artists from across North America. Premiering on Sept. 6th, the series will capture the atmosphere and vibe of studio recording and the personalities behind it. The first show will feature Matinee who were nominated for BCCMA award for Best Roots Band! Matt Layzell, from the Matinee, will be joining us today to discuss the launch and the webisodes.

Seeds of the Inner City: VLAFF
Seeds of the Inner City is a 7 minute short playing as a part of the shorts program ¡Fiesta 125! at VLAFF. It’s a preview to a full length documentary about the SOLEfood program in Downtown Eastside. A revolutionary urban agriculture enterprise started in 2009 beside Astoria Hotel, the program has grown greatly… especially their locally grown food! It provides employment and training opportunities to residents of DTES, great tasting local food for farmer markets and a beautiful organic addition to the urban landscape. Luckily, we’ll have the director of the film, Andrés Salas talking about his film.

Playing on Sept. 4th at 7PM Vancity Theatre, tickets here

Martin Dockery: Vancouver Fringe
Hailing from Brooklyn NY, Martin Dockery is a one-man show or rather a one-man chameleon. This year at Fringe he’s performing “The Surprise”, an autobiographical comedy featuring himself, his girlfriend and his father amidst Vietnam as Dockery tries to fix a deteriorating relationship with his dad. It all begins with his father telling him that there’s a surprise for Dockery in Vietnam and as we all know, it’s never really what you expect. Martin Dockery will be with us today for a chat about and compares plays to dogs.

Playing at times throughout the Fringe Festival at the Waterfront Theatre, click here for more information.

Tune in today at 5PM!
