  • p.

    I think you mean the Livestrong Foundation hired the artist, not Lance Armstrong himself. Right?

  • well according to the Supertouch article Mr. Armstrong has commissioned the artists, i am only going with the information provided. it is kind of a minor point.

  • awesome piece

  • exciting stuff!

    I like the line of chalk dust that’s built up under his work. Kinda frames it.

    Lance is a huge art fan, glad to see he is using it to promote this cause. Actually I was at the Shep fairey show in boston and one of the pieces was on loan from lance’s colletion… unrelated, but i thought that was cool.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

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).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
