TerroirPoster300pxTERROIR is an evening of pairing local stories with local wine
The audiences tastes wine while savoring stories from/about Peachland with Vancouver Artist David McIntosh. Photography exhibit by Andrew Barton.

For one week in October, performer David McIntosh will be searching out Peachland stories and sampling wine from Peachland vineyards. Enjoy a surprising and unpredictable Peachland evening, as he shares stories he’s discovered with wines that 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.

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 will be an interactive display that will invite 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.
