When a young Jewish prodigy paints The Brooklyn Crucifixions, the reaction of his Orthodox community forces a terrible decision – between family and vocation, between his love for God and his desperate need to make art. A poignant coming of age story, as intimate as a family dinner and as vast as a young man's dreams. Heartbreaking, triumphant.
Director: Morris Ertman.
Featuring: Katharine Venour and Gio Macibob.
A truly beautiful theatrical experience. Ninety fast-moving minutes that sparkle with life. [Talkin' Broadway]

"...DUAL is appropriate for most of my art. There is an opposition
that often exists in my work, a tension. This is sometimes in regards
to light and dark, or bodies in space, among other things. Perhaps it
is about unfulfilled desire or searching for utopia. I suppose it can
sum up existence (life and death). My art seems to be about these

Internationally acclaimed Montreal choreographer Lynda Gaudreau brings her innovative brand of dance to Vancouver with her newest work, 0101. Two dancers perform three versions of the same material, executing simple movements punctuated by the beat of a drummer on stage, in a work of dry minimalist wit which challenges ideas of what dance can be. This examination of details and time is quiet and playful, and full of absurd glimpses.
0101 demonstrates Gaudreau’s distinctive approach to dance: based in in-depth research, her work is known for its intellectual rigour, often subverting what an audience expects in a dance performance. At the same time its simplicity and directness, interspersed with flashes of quirky humour, create a powerful emotional response. 0101 continues her research on the body in movement, examining subtle differences in time and duration. The piece premiered at ImpulsTanz Festival, Vienna in 2006 and has since toured in Italy and France. Gaudreau’s Vancouver performances complement her interdisciplinary research project Clash, where she will work with a number of local choreographers and other artists in February and June at Scotiabank Dance Centre.

Invisible Atom, 2b theatre, 7pm
Written and performed by Anthony Black
Directed by Ann Marie Kerr
Suspended in a very precise moment in space and time, Atom tells his story of fortune and misfortune, taking the audience on a wild journey of the imagination and covering topics from economics to classical physics. You'll laugh as you question the nature and acceleration of our progress.
Woodpigeon is a collective of Calgarians—seven officially, but for this Vancouver appearance, nine— playing band leader Mark Hamilton's episodic orchestral pop confections. Modern roots/pop edged with psychedelic tinges, unusual instrumentation (baritone ukulele anyone?) and impeccable musicianship prompted NOW Magazine to call the collective "the next great Canadian breakout band."
