Ballet BC Presents Swan Lake

March 1st, 2013 @ 11:20am by Michelle Kim

I think I may have seen the most exquisite vision of my life: Tight little rows of ballerina swans in flat feathered tutus moving into different formations, tilting their hips like feathers ruffling, tapping their toes on the floor like feathers fluttering, sometimes in unison, and always purposefully perfect.

Whistler Film Festival 2012

November 30th, 2012 @ 10:22am by Michelle Kim

Today, I’m driving up to the Whistler Film Festival once again (I think this is the 5th year I’ve covered it for Miss604). I really look forward to this time every year; snow and movie magic go very well together. Unfortunately, I’m only able to cover the festival for few days; however, I’m interested to […]

Vancouver Fashion: Chloe Angus Designs

November 9th, 2012 @ 12:12pm by Michelle Kim

My first encounter with Chloe Angus Designs was back in 2008, upon first meeting actress (and now very close friend and colleague) Kristine Cofsky at the Toronto International Film Festival. A film she was the lead in, When Life Was Good, was premiering at the festival, and every night, at a different party, she was […]

Vancouver Opera: La Bohème

October 24th, 2012 @ 11:19am by Michelle Kim

The first romantic film I ever saw was Moonstruck, starring Cher and Nicolas Cage. One of my all-time favourite scenes in that film is when Cage’s character takes Cher’s character to her first operatic experience, La Bohème, at the glorious Metropolitan Opera and how Cage’s hand inches toward Cher’s, while a woman sings heartbreakingly, and […]

Ninja Pirates Theatre Society: SubUrbia

July 3rd, 2012 @ 4:12pm by Michelle Kim

Tonight marks the opening night of Ninja Pirates Theatre Society’s production of SubUrbia by Eric Bogosian, directed by Anthony Shim. The play follows the nighttime activities of a group of aimless 20-somethings still living suburban hometown and their reunion with a former-geeky-high-school classmate, who is now a successful musician. It’s semi-autobiographical take on Bogosian’s own […]

Bard on the Beach 2012: The Taming of the Shrew

June 14th, 2012 @ 9:59am by Michelle Kim

Bard on the Beach opened last week with The Taming of the Shrew, which is probably my least favourite Shakespearean play, considering the misogynistic plot — Petruchio (John Murphy), who wants to marry for money, weds Kate (Lois Anderson), a wealthy and independent-minded “shrew”. After marrying her, Petruchio “tames” her by starving her, sleep depriving […]
