Vancouver 2010 / Tickets Giveaway

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.

As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).

Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.

    My boyfriend and I live here in Vancouver, barely scraping by in this most expensive city. But we moved here from small town Alberta to do our thing – he screen-prints, just started up his own company (www.equinoxapparel.com), and I just opened a gallery with my best girls (see link). Life isn’t always easy out here, but it wasn’t always easy back home either! Like every good Albertan boy, my guy played hockey for most of his youth – driving hours to practice, jogging miles a day, living, breathing hockey. He ended up joining a band and that became his focus for a long time, but since moving to Vancouver has become all nostalgic for his hockey days – reading up on the history of the game, telling me stories about the most exciting games of all time (Canada vs. Soviet Union in the 70s), and watching the games when we can. We can’t really afford to attend the Canucks games, let alone an Olympic game – the best hockey game to be seen! But I know I would have one heck of a happy man if we could sit in that arena together. Thanks for doing this, you’ll make some lucky people totally stoked!
    Love,
    Tarah

    Hey Jeff!

    For some reason, my computer isn’t letting me into to your “Email me” link. Is it possible to give me your e-mail here?

    Or if for some reason you can’t, just e-mail me your address?

    Thanks so much!

Los Angeles Warehouse Transformed into a 150,000 Square Foot Art Exhibition

British artist Simon Birch and a team of 20 collaborators have constructed an elaborate series of interconnected installations in a vacant warehouse on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles. Covering 3 acres of space with a mix of sculpture, video, paintings and performance pieces, the exhibition is a direct response to the current political climate. A celebration of creativity, diversity and unity, Birch explains: “Given the current fragile state of the world, we need unity more than ever… and we need action.”

While encouraging positivity, possibility and a safe space for people to come together, The 14th Factory is exactly that — a call to action that doesn’t shy away from provoking a response (or at least an Instagram photo). One installation is an exact replica of the iconic room from 2001: A Space Odyssey, while another is filled with 300 pitchforks hanging from the ceiling above the guests!

Check out more images from the project below or on display at 440 N. Ave 19 Los Angeles, California until May 31.

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. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll 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.
