The Friday Round Up

Not quite time for all the Nutcrackers, but coming soon! Enjoy this week’s tastings!

Tonight and tomorrow you still have time to see  Things near and far, an evening of new dance that engages the collaboration of nine remarkable Canadian artists. Spanning three generations of creative experimentation in movement, sound and light, Things near and far features choreography by Tedd Robinson and Josh Martin, and is performed by three of Vancouver’s most versatile dancers: Anne Cooper, Ziyian Kwan and Ron Stewart. Guitarist Charles Quevillon, violinist Jesse Zubot, and lighting designer James Proudfoot add elements of sound and light to the mix, in what promises to be an evening of bold and unusual work. At the Firehall Arts Centre, 8pm. Tix
