God’s Mountain Estate and Joy Road Catering in the Okanagan

The following has been contributed by Steffani Cameron, who is in the middle of a 5-year worldwide adventure that she is chronicling at FullNomad.com.

God’s Mountain Estate in Penticton

Last night, I slept in the roofless room at God’s Mountain Estate, and it was among the most magical nights I’ve had.

But you might not like it.

If you’re the sort of lodger who requires little bottles of fancy shampoos and soaps, mints on your pillow with turn-down service, sanitized spaces devoid of personal touches, and staff that cater to your every whim, then God’s Mountain is not the place for you.

If, instead, you favour quirkiness over perfection, love character and eccentricity, rest and relaxation, and a sense of “there’s no other place like this,” then perhaps God’s Mountain will speak to you as loudly it does me.

Proprietor Sarah Allen understands that feeling of “the home I didn’t know I was searching for,” because, over 15 years ago, she turned up the mountain lane to be a guest at this then-unknown variable. Arriving, she discovered this odd-but-stunning Mediterranean-style villa during a not-so-well-planned road trip home to Vancouver, and despite low expectations, fell madly in love. She stayed three more times as a guest before she decided her life’s mission was to find a way to buy it.

Win Tickets to Feasting on Famine at the Firehall Arts Centre

Monday, September 18th, 2017 — 12:35pm PDT
Comments 1

The Firehall Arts Centre launches its 2017/2018 season with the world premiere of Shay Kuebler’s Feasting on Famine, from September 27th to September 30th. Through the lens of the health and fitness culture, Feasting on Famine examines obsession and addiction, and an industry that feeds off weakness and insecurity while monopolizing on one’s ability to flip passion into compulsion.

Feasting on Famine

Where: Firehall Arts Centre (280 E. Cordova, Vancouver)
When: September 27th to September 30th 8:00pm
Post-show talkback September 28th
Tickets: From $25 online or by calling (604) 689-0926

Produced by Radical System Art, Feasting on Famine is one man’s journey through the extremes of bodybuilding and health fitness, exploring the symmetry between the human body, the corporation and the excess of capitalism. The human body becomes a billboard for supplements and big pharma, simmering in the need for an outward aesthetic that controls all decisions in a world where one man consumes the daily caloric intake of a family of five.

Looking ahead to the 35th season of The Firehall Arts Centre, Artistic Producer Donna Spencer says, “We are delighted to bring Shay Kuebler’s choreography and performance in Feasting on Famine to the stage. Shay’s connection with the Firehall began as a performer and continued with his first choreographic work shown here as part of Dancing on the Edge in 2007, so it’s great to be presenting this provocative work in which he encourages us with humour and physical virtuosity to consider obsession and insecurity.”
