  • I find these very interesting. The first one is indeed beautiful

  • I stumbled across Betsy’s work on Flickr some time ago, gorgeous work

  • Even without seeing the figures, you can tell this has Japanese influence with the colours as well as the plants. The theme almost grows throughout each piece. The first painting is quite different but you can see elements of the theme begingin to grow. My favourite is the third painting for the composition and the different scales used, it gives the painting depth. The more you look at it, you notice that the colours are mostly grouped, so there is an area of greens, pinks and blues but they all overlap.

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.
