For a week in October, performer David McIntosh will search out Peachland stories and sample wine from Peachland vineyards. Enjoy a surprising and unpredictable Peachland evening, as he shares stories he’s discovered with wines he’s tasted.
“Taking advantage of McIntosh’s training as a sommelier and the ergonomics of serving wine, this unique storytelling performance allows for the consideration of our bodies as vessels of myth, history, lies, desire, and geography,” says Denise Kenney, assistant professor of Interdisciplinary Performance, Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Over the last five years, Vancouver Theatre company Battery Opera’s David McIntosh has been creating site-specific works that explore the traces of lives lived amongst the structures and histories that surround us.
Andrew Barton’s photography takes another kind of look at “TERROIR” — the exhibit is an interactive display that invites guests to “pair” quotes from local vineyard proprietors with stunning photographs of Okanagan wineries.
This event is sponsored by Innerfish Performance Company, the Eco Art Incubator, and the Okanagan Sustainability Institute.
The term terroir has its origins in France, where its “sense of place” refers to the natural environment in which particular wines are produced.
