Anti-Selfie Mirror by Chloé Curé and Bertrand Lanthiez

“We are Narcisses” by Chloé Curé and Bertrand Lanthiez is an anti-selfie mirror, created with the help of some water and a speaker. The longer the viewers look at themselves, the more distorted their image becomes. Watch the video below.

  • I see this two ways, the obvious being that it blurs your face to thwart our narcissistic tendencies a la, “Where’s my beautiful face!!! D:” (that grating buzzing sound definitely helps with this too), or secondly, as a much more beautiful way to defuse our self-absorbed focus in a sort of meditative way. I find the idea of looking into my reflection and watching the lines that hold myself distinct from my own surroundings slowly disappear to be very interesting.

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.
