The Friday Round Up

Dance! Dance! Dance!

It’s Friday, and here are our suggestions for the coming week:

Tonight and tomorrow, the Chutzpah Festival-commisioned Conversations, a new piece by Serge Bennethan, continues its premiere run at the Dance Centre.  This new work based on an imaginary encounter between the great Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca, who was murdered by pro-Franco militias in 1936, and his assassin, Juan Luis Trescastro. Tickets online here.

(While you’re there, check out the splendid dance coming NEXT week to the Chutzpah Festival. More about that this time next week.)

Tomorrow night at Russian Hall, Gabriela Rojo presents performances by tango dancers Carlos Barrionuevo & Mayte Valdes and Paula Gurini & Mariano Bielak. More information at

Thursday Feb 17-Saturday Feb 19, Ballet BC presents the Vancouver premiere of Jorma Elo’s new creation 1st Flash and the world premieres of the new creations of Shawn Hounsell and Medhi Walerski. More information at
