So It Is: A Book About Vancouver

soitisvancouver-book

Vancouverites, this one is for you. So It Is: Vancouver aspires to be a different kind of coffee table book. For Adam Schelle and Kev Holloway, the photography duo behind the project, this city isn’t perfect. Or, at least, that’s not what they want this particular book to be about.

Springing from a desire to represent the small fraction of people who make Vancouver so amazing, but in a way that isn’t about the flawless beauty Vancouver is known for, everyone featured in the book will be photographed only after being soaked with a watering can filled with water. Learn more about Adam and Kev, and their Kickstarter project 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. 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.
