Friday November 22 battery opera presents Bobs Salon. Bob’s Salon Series is an ongoing series that invites musicians, dancers, actors and the audience into a rigorous improvisational structure.This time Bob’s Salon is switching up the improv’s sexual tendencies. Mina Shum provides the story, Peggy Lee and Veda Hille provide the music, Josh Martin and his manly friends provide the dance. Don’t miss it! Doors at 9pm, action at 10pm, at the Hopbopshop, 150 McLean Dr, 2nd Floor.

Tonight and tomorrow night you can still catch the 605 Collective in New Animal. Directed by commissioned choreographer Dana Gingras, New Animal is a ferocious work created with and specifically for 605 Collective, exploiting the supreme versatility of its five dancers. Suffused with raw, unbridled energy, groove, ludic interaction and a hunger for movement, the performers reclaim their animal bodies as a means of becoming fully human. The 605 Collective has just toured this piece around the province to rave reviews, so grab the opportunity to go see it now! At the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, 8pm. Tix.
