A major critical and commercial success when it premiered in Vancouver in 2011 C. E. Gatchalian’s Falling in Time is an epic exploration of armed conflict, masculinity, sexuality, love, and forgiveness. Originally published in 2012, C.E. is currently rewriting the work in a 2024 context. Come join us for a reading of this updated classic as well as a conversation about the creative process, what makes an artist revisit a completed work, and writing in multiple languages.

C.E. will be in conversation with his collaborator, playwright and actress Maki Yi to discuss the work they did together on Falling In Time. They will be joined by singer, actor and playwright Argel Monte de Ramos for what is sure to be an illuminating and inspiring conversation about the artistic process.
