  • Seems like these deal with the idea of the park. The top one reminds me of jumanji, which is a good thing. Also, for me, the small object in the foreground looks very real and challenges the reality of the rest of the painting. Beautiful!

  • Wow, I love the top piece! At first glance, I thought I was looking at a sculpture, then I realized it was a painting. It’s lovely! The colors and contrasting light and shadow and the amount of detail in the piece at the bottom is breath taking. Lovely work!

    Beauty in contemporary painting is hard to do.. these really pull you in to an isolated situation, a somewhat dreamy situation maybe

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.
