“Set to a live score of Eckhardt-Gramatté’s solo violin works, the multimedia presentation blends movement and text to tell a heartbreaking tale of adventure, poverty and strife.” —BC Living’s Vancouver Adventures: Our Picks

Vancouver Presents’ “five reasons” to check out Never The Last.

“In the intimacy of the Orpheum Annex, you could wind up feeling slightly singed by the intensity of these performances. Well worth a little scorching, though.” —Vancouver Observer

“Quintana does a good job of capturing the overflowing artistic energy and, most interestingly, Eckhardt-Gramatté’s musings on the difficulties of being an independent woman pursuing an unconventional career in her time period.” —Inside Vancouver

“Music is just as much a character as Sophie and Walter. The violin plays a role every step of the way, accentuating every high and low, yet never takes away from the superb acting. MacKinnon’s mastery of her instrument is astounding to watch, especially as the show begins to take on a more solemn tone towards its end, with the final few caprices communicating what words never could.” —the Georgia Straight

Never The Last is on now through April 20 at the ANNEX, located at 823 Seymour Street. Buy your tickets here
