Bump Day: Plank Magazine
Plank Magazine isn’t an average appeal-to-the masses online publication, although it should become a must-stop spot for anyone who is truly interested in local theatre and dance. After reading a few of Plank’s reviews, it becomes apparent that their tag line—“Spanking the Ass of Culture”—is exactly what they aim to do. They’re certainly not kissing any, meaning you can trust that they’ll give you an honest second opinion after you read through the press release for an upcoming show.
At Plank they like to spice things up, and lively debates about the sweep of all-white casts dominating Vancouver’s theatre stages are punctuated by upbeat rants from a yellow chicken named Plucky. The site has been recently revamped to include more space for a list of upcoming dance and theatre shows, and a section with feature articles on the nitty-gritty aspects of the arts-scene that don’t seem to make it into mainstream media.
As fellow arts-lovers, we’re definitely impressed with Plank Magazine’s creative and intriguing content—and we’re not into ass-kissing either.
