The Friday Round Up

Petronio4It’s here, tonight and tomorrowDanceHouse season opener the Stephen Petronio Company in Underland! After Tuesday’s Speaking of Dance with Janet Smith, I am more excited than ever to see the creativity and imagination portrayed in the work of Petronio. If you are not familiar with his work, check out the company website to get a taste, and then come down to see the real thing. And come a little early at 7:15 for the pre-show chat where Janet Smith of the Georgia Straight will be in conversation with Stephen Petronio himself. Vancouver Playhouse, 8pm. Tix.

October 2 to 5 Amber Funk Barton and her company the response. will perform in Workspace II.  Barton says “The overall concept for Workspace II has been working with the literal and metaphorical act of stealing – the dancers portrayed as a gang of thieves for and against each other. The more we work on this idea, my imagination has grown to place these characters in a post-apocalypticworld that forces them to work together in order to survive. Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, 8pm.
