  • these are amazing.

  • shannon

    beautiful.

  • garrett

    horsays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • she really has got some crazy skills. to fit all that together is possibly impossible

  • Flora

    trop beau!

  • Jerrrrrry

    also see Deborah Butterfield — very similiar

  • I also immediately thought of Deborah Butterfield who makes life sized hose sculptures out of driftwood and then casts them in bronze.

    • yah the Butterfield connection is… strange. for what it’s worth, i think Butterfield’s abstract work is more interesting, but even her straightforward horse-sculptures blow these out of the water.

  • beautiful anatomy on these pieces!!! brings troya back to memory :)

  • All sculptors should learn from Heather. Hats off

  • es

    So beautiful!

  • Michael

    Sorry guys, but I prefer Heather’s work. It’s more dynamic and indeed less abstract. Nonetheless, both are good.

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.
