Performance | Dance In Vancouver

Vision Impure


Noam Gagnon’s latest work Pathways explores the intricate push and pull of relationships impacted by urban living. Ten extraordinary dancers draw on all their strength, speed and agility to power through the explosive choreography, striving to find moments of emotional connection amidst the visceral intensity. Pathways questions our ability or inability to connect with one another and what makes us react more strongly to some than to others.

Lee Su-Feh/battery opera + Company 605
Thursday-Saturday November 21-23
Dance Machine is a kinetic sculpture – 64 pieces of bamboo suspended from a central copper disk – that can be transformed into multiple configurations by the movement of the bodies within it. Drop in to rest, play and explore.
Conceived by Lee Su-Feh and designed by Jesse Garlick, the Dance Machine is co-produced with Festival Trans-Amériques.
6.30-11pm Jarislowsky Studio, Level 3 | Free admission

Company 605 is creating Looping, an installation built upon concepts from their ensemble work, Loop, Lull. Over three nights, a rotating cast of fifteen performers will trade in and out of a repeating improvised looping score. A practice of continuously tracking and responding to change, in themselves and in relation to one another, Looping is a complex test of endurance and capacity for adaptation, keeping the virtuosic physicality and individual choices of each unique performer at play. Doors remain open. Drop in before or after a show, and stay as long as you wish.
6.30-8pm, 9-10.30pm Birmingham Studio, Level 3 | Free admission

The DIV Lounge is open 6.30-11pm: cash bar and entertainment.
