The Friday Round Up

Oh sunshine! Can spring really be just around the corner…?

Ballet jazz de Montreal's HarryWe know it is a ways away yet, but it is going to be so good we have to at least mention it this week – February 15 and 16 DanceHouse presents Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. Stay tuned!

This Friday and Saturday The Firehall Arts Centre presents Fujiwara Dance Inventions (Denise Fujiwara) in  No Exit based on the Jean-Paul Sartre play of the same name and “Lost & Found”, a solo choreographed and performed by Denise Fujiwara. At the Firehall Arts Centre, 8pm. Tix

As part of the PuSh Festival, Friday through Sunday enjoy the work of Jerome Bel, performed  with a beautifully spare and poetic evening of dance and autobiographical storytelling, created in collaboration with, and performed by, French dancer Cédric Andrieux. Reflecting on a rich career which included eight rigorous years with Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Andrieux gives a rare, moving and humorous insider’s view into a dancer’s life, performing extracts of work by major choreographers including Cunningham and Trisha Brown. At the Dance Centre. Tix

January 24 to 26 Ballet BC presents Encore, an evening of three previously shown and much loved works, including Medhi Walerski’s Petite Ceremonie, a powerful and poetic full-company piece inspired by the idea of “life in a box”. Dance Europe calls Walerski an “original voice” who makes dances that are “out of this world…a dreamlike experience”. Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 8pm. Tix balletbc encore(Photo Michael Slobodian)

The list of some of Vancouver’s young and upcoming dancers and choreographers is too long to list here, but come out to The Beaumont Studios, 316 W 5th Ave, Vancouver 8pm. $12 CASH ONLY.
