UpCYCLEd Stories: A community bike musical in Mount Pleasant. Join filmmaker, musician, artist and Emily Carr University instructor Sarah Van Borek in the creation of a unique, 3-part movie that has music and dance components and that tells the story of the Mount Pleasant community using a focus on bikes and cycling as artistic inspiration, art materials (recycled bike parts) and public presentations. Mount Pleasant community members of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels are invited to explore their neighbourhood while contributing to various aspects of the project, including: storytelling, puppetry, video/animation, music, dance, and sound. The project will be presented to the public in 4 stages, each at a bike pedal-powered pop-up projection nearby the Mount Pleasant Community Centre. This project began in September 2015 and will end with a celebration and premiere screening of the final movie at an outdoor “bike-in” the following September.
