Winter is upon us—bringing holiday cheer, chilly weather, and festive energy! The Cultch is located in the heart of East Van, but you can access our online platform, RE/PLAY, from anywhere in the world! 

Experience electrifying short and feature-length works from musicals to circus, comedy, theatre, music, dance, and more!

  1. Share an experience with a friend or family, wherever they are

Struggling to find a meaningful gift for someone? Or want to avoid frantically running through a mall! Give the gift of a Watch Party or a shared digital experience and avoid travel delays and shipping costs! If you’re in Vancouver and your bestie is in Japan, no problem. Choose a start time that fits your schedule and enjoy the show. 

Three feature-length works are currently available to watch on demand through RE/PLAY. Take a trip under the sea with Theatre Replacement’s East Van Panto: The Little Mermaid. Experience MEDITATION, by dance artist Amber Barton and the accompanying documentary filmed by The Cultch’s Video Director, Cameron Anderson. Or take a sledgehammer to the system with DEMOLITION by Lisa Fa’alafi, one of the creators of Hot Brown Honey.

Looking for something more bite-sized? Check out a RE/PLAY Short, like Veda Hille’s music video for Be a Tree or a groundbreaking circus work by Erin Ball, with music by composer Eliot Britton.

DEMOLITION by Polytoxic (Australia) and Kiosk Film (Australia)
  1. You can watch shows on your own schedule

We know how busy this time of year can be. RE/PLAY On Demand allows you to watch each presentation at your own pace on any device. On Demand means you can decide when to watch; PLUS, you can pause, play or rewind as much as you like. If attending a live performance is not in the cards (for whatever reason), we’ve got you covered. 

  1. East Van Panto: The Little Mermaid is available until January 31, 2023

Can’t make it to the theatre to see Theatre Replacement’s East Van Panto: The Little Mermaid? Or want to experience the magic once again? With Panto On Demand, you can enjoy the 10th Anniversary-edition of this beloved holiday tradition while sipping eggnog and snacking on gingerbread mer-men! You can watch it on your couch or at the bottom of Burrard Inlet (provided you have good WiFi). You can stop, rewind, and watch it again and again until you know all the songs by heart.

Dive under the sea with the East Van Panto, an all-ages show that has audiences and critics raving!

No matter where you are or how you celebrate this time of year, we wish you a cozy winter!
