Made in BC - dance on tour and the Kitimat Concert Association bring you two new works by two of Vancouver’s most exciting emerging dance companies, 605 Collective and The Response

In the 605 Collective’s AUDIBLE, 5 rambunctious performers jump, dive and collide to create a rough-and-tumble dance, transforming today’s hyper communication into an athletic contact sport. Backed by electronic industrial soundscapes and experimental club beats, the 605 Collective has developed a kinetic language that speaks to both hip-hop and contemporary dance audiences.

“… it looks cool with meaning, exploring the idea of disconnection in a wired world where texting and Twittering have replaced face-to-face contact.” – The Georgia Straight

… with AUDIBLE, the young DIY company isn’t just out for kicks; it’s announcing itself as a force on the local dance scene.” – The Georgia Straight

“…dance for the purist… The piece is fresh, funny and utterly engrossing ” – Plank Magazine

Hero & Heroine is an intimate duet by the response., featuring the unique hybrid movement of choreographer Amber Funk Barton joined by dance partner, Josh Martin. In a surreal landscape, falling in and out of sleep, a man and a woman battle unknown forces; sometimes together, other times alone, but mostly with the unsaid between them.

“…Barton is a choreographer to be reckoned with… she cunningly embeds ballet within her urban dance fusion, which gives her work a sense of crisp technique” – The Globe and Mail

“Get Amber Funk on stage and viewers can expect to feel the theatre rumble… Her stuff is physical to the point of explosive, and impossible to forget.” – The Georgia Straight
