New Works at Night: OURO Collective

May 26 2017, 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. New Works at Night: OURO Collective. OURO is an eclectic, Vancouver-based dance collective that uses hip-hop, waacking, breaking, popping and contemporary dance as the foundation for the creation and production of new works. As individual artists coming from diverse cultural and dance backgrounds, OURO sees their collaboration as a catalyst for dialogue, creative innovation, and community building.. Event detailsUnited around the common goal of pushing the boundaries of how street dance-based works are created and presented, OURO is dedicated to creating performances that explore the full range of possibilities and identities they represent. This season, OURO Collective expands on their research over the past two years to create their first full-length work, yet to be titled. Through their process of self-questioning and dialogue, OURO translates, through movement, private and public behaviour of self-absorption and extreme individualism. The work features and at times amalgamates, the collective's diverse genres to mirror the individual's and the community's struggle and resolve in finding solutions for connection... Event Details.
