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.

Modèle Puissance

Julien Kedryna, from the drawing collective Modèle Puissance, just let me know about about the collective’s brilliant new book, Random. There are 100 copies of the book and they intentionally made more drawings than what are featured in any one copy of the book, so only 80 of the 100 books will have the same drawing. The drawings also appear in a completely different order, so each one has a new neighbor in each book.

It gets better, the books feature six different types of paper which allow the viewer to identify each artist, and 20 of the 100 books feature the original drawings! Amazing!
