“The Event of a Thread” installation by Ann Hamilton

Ann Hamilton / The Event of a Thread video by paul octavious
The Event of a Thread” installation by Ann Hamilton just closed at The Armory. I was dying to go after seeing several images of it pop up on Instagram last week, but lucky for us designer/photographer Paul Octavious shot a little video of the installation.

Actually, I’m not sure if lucky is the right word, I’m now a bit more depressed I didn’t get to go. Watch below!

    I was at this show. It was very surreal interaction of either being on the swings or under the cloth or standing on the balcony observing it all.

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.
