AHA MEDIA is writing, producing and performing a Shadow Theatre Play at DTES CAN Art Space on Saturday Feb 27, 2010 at Lux Hotel on East Hastings in Vancouver Downtown Eastside


Inspired by the bright light illumination and our Large Store Front Windows of our temp DTES CAN Art space, we decided to do Shadow Play – Improv Theatre for all of our neighbors and friends on East Hastings street in Vancouver.

AHA MEDIA believes in positive community engagement and we wanted to help everyone remember us through visual and performing arts before we leave our temp DTES CAN Art Space as our last day is Sunday Feb 28, 2010
