  • This is so much more than skateboarding, the first video is my favourite for the video editing in slow motion, it has great flow but I can’t quite touch on the word for how it makes me feel, it’s almost like ballet with a sort of power about it. Martin is an incredible skater and an artist himself, they way he moves and uses his surroundings, it’s so free. With some of the moves he pulls, combined with the slow motion, he is almost turned into a moving sculpture, I’d love to see someone make something like that, a whole area filled with sculptures of skaters pulling different moves.

    truth be told, i was getting pretty excited as soon as i recognised park guell in the photograph.. but woah! and the music is magic aaahh! and all of the giant WTF’s kindof reminded me of the way they shoot martial arts own giant WTF’s, anyway.. amazing yeah.

  • absolutely brilliant !

  • diogo

    omg!!!!!
    simply amazing

  • Kilian Martin is an amazing skater. I have had the oppurtunity several times to photograph him. All amazing films from Brett Novak.

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.
