Lost Object/ive

John Ottmann

Vancouver

Our history and charted territory are like maps written on our bodies – a story of individual narrative vs. our collective story. The piece considers the body as the anthropological and archeological artifact and site of knowledge.

Choreographer: John Ottmann
Dancer/Performer: Meredith Kalaman

John Ottmann

Kaleido

OURO Collective

Vancouver

Bodies folding in on themselves in a never ending Fibonacci spiral. Limbs twisting, creating angles and shapes. Symmetry and geometry constantly shifting and moving like a kaleidoscope.

Kaleido is not a Greek word, but a modern compound form made from two Greek roots, kalos “beautiful,beauty” and eidos “that which is seen: form, shape”.

 

Choreographers: Tentacle Tribe (Emmanuelle Le Phan and Elon Hoglund)
Performers: OURO Collective (Cristina Bucci, Maiko Miyauchi, Rina Pellerin, Dean Placzek and Antonio Somera).

Dialogue

Wen Wei Dance

Vancouver

Dialogue is a piece for five men that explore themes of contact, communication and language – both spoken and unspoken. Dialogue explores the basic desire to be understood, and the loneliness when one does not achieve those rare honest connections with others.

Choreographer: Wen Wei Wang
Performers: Ralph Escamillan, Arash Khakpour, Tyler Layton-Olson, Nicholas Lydiate, and Alex Tam
