East Van Panto Reviews 2016

You know exactly where you are as soon as the curtain comes up on Laura Zerebeski’s colourful painted backdrops with the East Van cross, Save-On Meats flying pig sign and Vancouver specials backed by snow-capped mountains.
Vancouver Sun – November 26, 2016

“…exquisitely colourful work…”
Georgia Straight – November 27th, 2016

“Laura Zerebeski’s painted backdrops reveal Vancouver as Van Gogh might have seen it.”
Colin Thomas – November 26, 2016

“Not to mention ‘scenic illustrator’ Laura Zerebeski, whose backdrop canvasses evoke East Van scenes (plus an interior panorama of wolf guts) with the vivid expressionist palette of an early Chagall.”
Vancouver Observer – November 27, 2016

“One can probably never really overdose on Laura Zerebeski’s scenic fly’s depicting downtown Hastings Street or the innards of Red’s home; or Grammy’s flat; or the “Vancouver special” house placards; or the scrim showing us Wolf’s tummy. Great visual fun all of this!”

East Van Panto Reviews 2015

“Laura Zerebeski’s painterly backdrops, which the company has used every year, continue to stun.”
Georgia Straight – December 7th, 2015

“…playful surrealist landscapes…”
Vancouver Sun –  December 7, 2015

“…enchanting Emily Carr-esque backdrops…”

East Van Panto Reviews 2014

“The East Van backdrops by Laura Zerebeski are spectacular.”
Globe and Mail – Thursday, Dec. 11 2014

“Laura Zerebeski’s gorgeous backdrops show us East Van as filtered through the eyes of Van Gogh—or Zerebeski.” 
Georgia Straight – December 8th, 2014

“Charles Demers (writer), Amiel Gladstone (director) and ingenious Veda Hille (musical director and performer) are all back, with panto-hammy actors Dawn Petten and the inimitable Allan Zinyk leading a delightful cast in front of Laura Zerebeski’s extraordinary painted East Van backdrops.”
The Province – December 9, 2014

“The sets are gorgeous. Kris Boyd and The Art Factory have constructed a set that is simple, yet evocative of both the Vancouver and the whimsy of panto. Laura Zerebeski’s paintings used as backdrops are stunning and I found myself eagerly anticipating each set change on the chance it would reveal yet another beautiful piece of art.”
Vancouver Presents – December, 2014

East Van Panto Reviews 2013

“Visually, the show is an absolute treat. Set designer Pam Johnson has created an impressive beanstalk and a very clever mechanism to show Jack climbing it. Laura Zerebeski’s three gorgeous painted backdrops include a wavy Vancouver Special and a penthouse sky view right out of Van Gogh. The costumes are spectacularly colourful and funny. The designer: Cultch Executive Director Heather Redfern. Who knew?
The Province – December 11, 2013

“Local artist Laura Zerebeski painted the three vivid and whimsical backdrops in her signature distorted style. The panorama features Ken Lum’s East Van cross, bright orange harbour cranes, and our iconic mountain peaks includes a moving skytrain. Jack’s house is a Vancouver Special style with cut-out kitchen window. And the Giant’s condo in the sky has floor-to-ceiling windows and a view that only 1% of the population could afford. These additions to Pat Johnson’s set and prop design convey the location and the mood perfectly.”
Vancouver Observer – December 10, 2013

“What made the performance special for me was much of the theatricality of the presentation. I thought that Itai Erdal’s lighting design made the whole show seem indeed magical. A couple of Scenic Illustrator Laura Zerebeski’s big, colourful, scenic backdrops were so well executed that they would not be out of place hanging in the Vancouver Art Gallery.”
Vancouverscape.com – December, 2013

“The evening looks spectacular, thanks largely to Laura Zerebeski’s painted backdrops, which are vivid, swirling renditions of East Van sites.”
