The Friday Round Up

Lots of good stuff happening this week – just as well, because these dark, dark days could seriously bring one down into the doldrums!  And it is not even December yet!

This Thursday through Sunday Ballet BC presents three works in their season opener In/verse including Artistic Director Emily Molnar’s full company premiere Aniel,  inspired by prolific American composer and saxophone player John Zorn’s Book of Angels. Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 8pm. Tix

November 22-24th The Fall Dance Repertory Concert: What The Five, Five Dance Works with works by Donald Sales, Judith Garay, Desiree Dunbar, Daisy Thompson,  and Andrea Nann. Fei and Milton Wong Theatre, SFU Woodwards, 8pm and Saturday Mat. 2pm. Tix

November 28, 29, 30 & Dec 1 the plastic orchid factory presents the world premiere of Chunking. James Gnam has created an evening- length contemporary dance work which explores how we relate to what we see. How do we instantly deconstruct and prioritize an experience? How do fragments of these experiences etch themselves into our individual and collective psyches? This playful and visually compelling piece has been created in collaboration with lighting designer James Proudfoot, media artist Josh Hite, sound designer Kevin Legere and five contemporary dance artists. Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, 8pm. Tix
