Event: Vancouver-Based Dance Collective OURO

OURO-1Photo by Jourdan Tymkow

Heads up Vancouver, 7pm this Friday and Saturday (May 1st and 2nd) the creative dance collective known as OURO is hosting an evening of contemporary and street dance, and will be premiering a 20-minute piece that they’ve been developing over the last six months. Both nights will feature several performances, visual arts, and yummy drinks courtesy of the folks at The Juice Truck. No tickets to purchase, it’s by donation at the door.

Full disclosure, my girlfriend is one of the dancers in the show. I’ll be there both nights helping setup, so if you come out please say hello! I know nothing about contemporary dance but I’ve seen OURO perform twice and their work is really fun and accessible – you’ll enjoy it.
