I’m coming to L.A.

theta

Los Angeles people! I’m coming to your city July 18th! Imprint Culture Lab has invited me to give an hour-long talk so if you’re in the area come on out. I’ll be speaking about the current state of the Internet and how it is negatively affecting creativity. I’m hoping people ask questions at the end so we can have a nice conversation. Lets be friends in real life!

    I’d like to go to that talk, sounds interesting

  • photogasme

    I hope there will be a video recording of this talk for those who are out of the country^^ it sounds really captivating! and I agree with the fact that internet and “oversharing” is bad news for the arts… it leaves no more room for mystery and surprise, the great feeling of satisfaction that comes from discovering something is being lost…

    • i think there might be video, ill report back if there is

      • photogasme

        great!! thanks so much and good luck ;)

      • photogasme

        So how was it? :D

  • Stephanie Ann Buer

    I wish you were coming a month later, then I could meet you, hear your talk AND you could see my show with Mary Iverson at Thinkspace gallery!! I love your blog, I hope our paths cross some day : )

    • no i wish i was too – im sure our paths will tho :-)

  • TELL ME THE SECRET OF USING THAT 360 APP! Haha, I’ve been trying since you first wrote about it :

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.
