Roger Skateboards

Roger Skateboards
The award for most fun being had in a skate video goes to Roger Skateboard’s “Tim and Eric”. It’s from a couple years back and I only saw it now because my new pal Cai posted it on his site Hickory Nines. The whole thing is just so chill, with brilliance scattered throughout, like this part where one of them holds a mirror and the other films his own kick flip. Watch below!

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.
