Kidd Pivot.  In her new dance piece based on motifs from Shakespeare's The Tempest, Kidd Pivot's Crystal Pite stages a game of revenge and forgiveness, reality and imagination. Pite explores these motifs in two contexts: a maquette of Shakespeare's island as a metaphor for isolation, captivity and desire, and a nostalgic cityscape that evokes longing. Pite’s distinct choreographic language — a breadth of movement fusing classical elements and the complexity and freedom of structured improvisation — is marked by a strong theatrical sensibility and a keen sense of wit and invention.

Exhibit Opening “Chinese Legacies: Building the Canadian Pacific Railway in British Columbia”  The Port Moody Station Museum is proud to present the exhibit Chinese Legacies: Building the Canadian Pacific Railway in British Columbia from May 14th to November 16th, 2012.  This traveling display was created by the Revelstoke Museum & Archive in partnership with the Revelstoke Railway Museum and portrays the history of the Chinese labourers who contributed to the building of the CPR between Port Moody and Craigellachie, BC.  In order to celebrate the arrival of this exhibit, the Museum will be hosting weekly family days every Sunday in July and August starting Canada Day weekend. The exhibit recounts the difficulties that faced the some 15,000 Chinese workers between 1880 and 1885 and includes a diorama of a typical Chinese worker’s campsite, artefacts such as opium pipes, coins, incense burners, as well as a slide show of historical photos.  It is estimated that between 600 and 2,200 workers lost their lives due to malnutrition, dangerous working conditions, and disease during this time. Discrimination was a daily reality for these workers, who would be paid half the salary of the white workers and were forced to do the most dangerous work in the camps.
