The Friday Round Up

The season is winding down but there is something for everyone this week!

Hope you are reading this early because tonight is the last night of  SFU Graduate Dance Performance One Thousand Hours Later, featuring new works from Vanessa Goodman and Megan Walker-Straight and the 2012 graduates of SFU’s dance program. Studio D, 2nd Floor, SFU School for the Contemporary Arts 8pm.

If classical ballet is more your thing, go see Coastal City Ballet in Hansel and Gretel. Choreographed by Irene Schneider, former Artistic Director of Germany’s Magdeburg Ballet, this family-friendly ballet tells the timeless story of a brother and sister who get lost in the woods and stumble upon misadventure.  May 5 Maple Ridge ACT 7:30pm
and again May 6 Centennial Theatre 2pm.

We really do have something for everyone this week! May 10-12 Ballet BC presents Bliss, a full-evening work by Ballet BC’s resident choreographer Jose Navas which includes a reprisal of the acclaimed ballet The bliss that from their limbs all movement takes presented in the fall of 2010. 8pm Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

  1. We attended SFU’s “One Thousand Hours Later” last evening, a performance we wouldn’t have known about, had it not been for this blog. Thank you so much! We were both awed by the choreography, music, high level of discipline and technique, and by the raw emotion that was transmitted so beautifully and powerfully to the audience. This was one of those events that will stay in my “extraordinary memories” book for a long time to come. All of the students and faculty are to be congratulated. I would so love to see them, perhaps five years down the road, in a reunion performance.
