The Friday Round Up

Oh sunny, sunny days!!  But still lots of dance to see – go check out your favourite!

Tonight and tomorrow night you can still get on over to see BC Ballet’s Bliss, the company’s first full length conceptual piece, choreographed by their resident choreographer Jose Navas, who says of working with Ballet BC  as “awakening an urgency to create classical dance but from a contemporary point-of-view. I want to change the way we look at contemporary ballet and bring back the beauty of pure movement.” Queen Elizabeth Theatre 8pm Tix

Saturday and Sunday TomoeArts brings Shamisen & Odori: The Music and Dance of Kabuki, live shamisen music and live kabuki dance in an intimate studio setting. Focusing on male-form dances, and Edo (early Tokyo) characters and stories, you’ll meet warriors, angels, men-about-town, courtesans and drunken revellers – the real stuff of kabuki! Goldcorp Centre for the Arts  149 West Hastings Street / SFU Woodward’s.

ImageSunday May 13 in the last of their Dance Allsorts series , New Works presents Justine Chambers, Vancouver-based contemporary dance artist, in her piece A Study for Enters and Exits – an iteration of a larger in-progress work Enters and Exits.  Also performing will be the Arts Umbrella Dance Company in four short works. And in honour of Mothers Day, Moms get in free.  It’s at 2pm, so still lots of time for her to sleep in and make it over to the Roundhouse Community Centre.
