The Friday Round Up

Phew, did you make it through Dance in Vancouver? There was so much to see! We would love to hear your thoughts – drop us a line!

KarissaTonight and tomorrow night, in another new venue, Dances for a Small Stage presents Point 5. In an exciting pairing of one musician and one dancer, you will see the likes of CR Avery with dancer Hayden Fong, and singer/songwriter Stefana Fratila paired with dancer Karissa Barry. And if you want to make a full evening of it, you can have dinner there beforehand. Sounds like a great evening! At the The Emerald in Chinatown. Dinner (prix fixe menu.pdf) at 7pm $45, show only at 9pm $20. And you can even buy tix in advance now, or at the door (cash only).

December 4th and 5th The Body Narratives Collective  presents Dark Room – a groundbreaking performance that weaves together music, dance, science, technology and photography. Using the theatre as a photographic studio and dark room to reveal the process of creating photographic images as performance, Dark Room challenges the way we experience moving bodies through time, and distills our experiences into tangible pictures. Featuring performers Julia Carr, Meghan Goodman, Arash Khakpour and Chu-Lynne Ng with multimedia designer Andrew Haw and composer Daniel Simmons. Dramaturgy by DD Kugler, lighting design by Jaylene Pratt and writing contributions by Adam Cowart. At the Roundhouse Community Centre, 7:30pm. Tix

December 4-7 you can enjoy Jaques and James, two enchanting companion Jamessolos. James, co-created by James Gnam of plastic orchid factory, and Su-Feh Lee, traces one man’s journey from boyhood to manhood through his relationship with North American ballet classic, The Nutcracker. Target of God exposes the personal turmoil of an ill-fated anti-hero. With a humorous twirl, the planets align and the stage is set for a catastrophic transition. Target of God has toured internationally to critical acclaim and is the brain child of Quebec interdisciplinary dance artist Jacques Poulin-Denis of Montreal’s Grand Poney. At the Firehall Arts Centre, 8pm. Tix (Image by Dominique Skotz)
