The Friday Round Up

As we head toward the summer and the bigger companies have finished their season, let us cast our eyes to local, Vancouver dancers – and it’s good stuff! Check some of it out this week!

Tonight, tomorrow and May 14, 16 and 17 Edam presents Intersect – new edamwork by Peter Bingham and guest artists Josh Martin and  Helen Walkley. Peter Bingham will present two new duets, The Secret Life of Trees a mesmerizing entanglement performed by Delia Brett and James Gnam; and Promenade, a walk in the park unlike any other walk in the park. Josh Martin of the 605 Collective continues his highly original exploration of movement innovation in a duet performed by Laura Avery and Jessica Wilkie. And choreographer Helen Walkley and composer James Maxwell collaborate together with the dancing prowess of Deanna Peters, Bevin Poole and Olivia Shaffer to create a poetic environment of swirling words, music and movement.Book your ticket early because these shows always seem to sell out the second week, once the word gets out! At the EDAM Studio Theatre, 303 East 8th Ave, 8pm. Tix $15 in advance, $20 at the door.

May 8 thru 10, Brief Encounters is back! Brief Encounters is about cutting-edge collaboration between artists who may otherwise never have worked together. For each Volume, 10 artists are chosen and matched in 5 unusual pairs. The artists meet for the first time 2 weeks before the show. They have never worked together before. From this point on, the only criteria is that each pair perform a new collaborative work. The end result is always a surprise, for everyone. This time Brief Encounters 21 takes us back to their beginnings, returning to Gastown at Guilt and Co, 1 Alexander St, Vancouver 7:30pm. Tix

May 13 Mascall Dance presents  BLOOM Dance Tasting  – Experience dance through the wine’s/beer’s eye and comic’s tongue. Emerging choreographers try out their works while a comedian hilariously  interprets them for the audience. $10 includes wine/beer tasting. At Mascall Dance Studio, 1130 Jervis St. Cash bar 4:30, show 5:15pm. Tix at door.
