The Friday Round Up

3…2…1..It’s here!  Tonight and tomorrow night DanceHouse’s final show of the season, Gallim Dance in Blush!  Come one, come all to see this spectacular company from New York City (but with it’s roots in Batsheva Dance Company from Israel!) Deborah Jowitt of New York’s Village Voice says “Miller seems to love creating images of fierce abandon and ungainliness within order, and to make us both laugh and sympathize with the dogged, stumblebum performers—all the while relishing them as the virtuosos that they are.” Aaaand, all those present at the show will hear the “hot off the press” announcement for DanceHouse’s 2012/13 Season…  Playhouse 8pm, tickets available at the door both nights.
PS-Playhouse remains open for all non-Vancouver Playhouse Theatre Company performances.
