Here’s an email from Steph Grant (sent with this photo):

Cops got called last night… the cops laughed, took pictures with us and we served them pumpkin pie. they said they hadn’t seen anything like this and we explained why we were doing it. It was great… we are going to do this more often, next time… hammocks IN the fort!

Thanks!!

    I loved the project, eventough we almost burned down the house. Note to self: Don’t place pillows directly on top of candles.

  • Just sent my fortress of Geektitude in!

    Would be so cool if there was a never ending chain of photos of everybody’s fort.

    One unified giant walled fortress, even greater than the Wall of China!

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.
