The False Creek Bride is a multi-disciplinary performance inside a domed structure resembling a large white dress. Through storytelling the audience is guided on the mythical journey of Serena, a magical fish captured in a fisherman’s net. As the tale unfolds, she must bargain for her life by promising to supply the fisher with her bounty from the sea. The premise of the story is based on traditonal Celtic Silkie and the Inuit Sedna folktales and is given a contemporary twist as the fisher struggles with the communities need for his fish harvest. It is a tale woven with passion and enchantment; it aims to entertain while encouraging awareness of the environmental impact of our rivers and streams.
