Based on the Virginia Woolf novel, this is the story of a young nobleman who is drawn into a love affair with Queen Elizabeth I. For a time, life at court is interesting enough, but Orlando yearns for something more. As he strives to make his way as a poet and lover, his travels keep him at the heart of a dazzling tale where gender and gender preferences shift regularly, usually with hilarious results.

Directed by Thrasso Petras

CARLEIGH BAKER is an author and teacher of nêhiyaw âpihtawikosisân (Cree-Métis) and European descent. Born and raised on Stó:lō territory, she currently lives on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwəta (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. Her debut story collection, Bad Endings (Anvil Press, 2017), won the City of Vancouver Book Award, and was also a finalist for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize and the Emerging Indigenous Voices Award for fiction. Her short stories and essays have been translated into several languages and anthologized in Canada, the United States, and Europe. Her newest collection, Last Woman, and a novel, are forthcoming with McClelland & Stewart. As a teacher and researcher, she is particularly interested in how contemporary fiction can be used to address the climate crisis. Her novel-in-progress, Mudlarkers, is a darkly satirical look at how modern conservationist movements have displaced Indigenous voices on issues of land stewardship. She was a 2019/20 Shadbolt Fellow in the Humanities at Simon Fraser University, where she sometimes teaches creative writing.

INDUSTRIAL REMNANTS series is inspired by a visually exciting heritage building in urban Vancouver where I live. I love the weathered, rusty textures of this building and have created a series of works that honour its past. The Wilkinson Steel building is at the foot of Cook street on First Avenue.
