BibliOdyssey just posted a great little collection of satirical maps of World War I. The maps were painstakingly screencapped and stitched together from images on the University of Amsterdam website. It’s really cool to see political cartoons from nearly 100 years ago.
Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.
For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements, which will be released on Spotify shortly!
We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).
