Out Innerspace Dance Theatre: Major Motion Picture

Out Innerspace Dance Theatre is a Vancouver based company dedicated to furthering the development and appreciation of contemporary dance in Canada through the creation of innovative and integral dance works with personal and public significance.

In Major Motion Picture, 7 dancers fight for the theatre, losing and gaining the grounds for their power and identity. A mysterious third party is present in every conflict, teaching us how to desire, and leading us into patterns. Living in the wings, The Others hack into the theatre with wild attempts to steal the show and regain the stage as their own.

The production explores timely themes of surveillance, otherness, propaganda and belief through its eccentric and lawless characters. A hybrid performance language includes infrared technology and an on-stage surveillance system alongside Out Innerspace's trailblazing movement invention.

Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers

With the audience seated cabaret style on stage, relax and enjoy an up-close and personal concert in this intimate venue.

A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. Ben Caplan is not any one thing. As he releases his second album, he's already gained a following in more than a dozen countries from Australia to Europe and across North America. It's no surprise. Caplan is simply unforgettable; with his huge beard and unruly mane, he is as visually striking as he is aurally compelling. His rough and textured tones cut through crowded halls; an enormous voice, roaring louder than raucous crowds. The microphone looks almost superfluous. But looks are deceiving; once he has your attention, Caplan can croon smoother than a glass of single malt whisky, pouring beauty into a harsh world.

Inspired in part by Eastern European and Jewish folk traditions, Ben Caplan mixes older musical sensibilities with his own soul, straight from his hairy heart. Lyrically, you've not heard the like before. Often edgy and dark, Caplan holds a mirror up to show us our nasty bits, singing about the ugliness and showing us that this darkness is the root of the sublime. His new album, Birds with Broken Wings, explodes with sounds both ancient and modern, with more than 30 musicians and even more instruments, combining acoustic sounds from around the world. It's all smoothly blended by the hottest international production team around. It's uncharted territory, and Caplan's leading the way.

Phantom of the Opera

Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada's Phantom of the Opera is a captivating story which evokes timeless themes and images of outcasts, love, and the power of obsession.

Inspired by Gason Leroux's 1910 novel of the same name, the story has continued to excite the imaginations of readers, reaching across different cultures and eras. With original choreography by Igor Dobrovolskiy set to the music of Francis Poulenc, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA features lush costumes created by Paul Daigle and an intriguing set design by Brian Perchaluk. Pierre Lavoie's ethereal mix of light and shadows perfectly captures the eerie world where a love triangle ensnares, Erik, the beautiful ingénue whom he loves, and the dashing young viscount who wins her heart.

Igor Dobrovolskiy, Artistic Director and Choreographer for Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada, fuses ballet technique with theatrical expression - what he terms a "theatre of movement." Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada pursues a continuous creative process in an environment that supports origination and strong technical and expressive dancers who co-create with him. Through collaboration with like-minded artists attracted by the vision and artistic philosophy of our Artistic Director our creative practice uses ballet-art as a platform to see our world in more compelling, poignant and imaginative ways.

Freud's Last Session

Does God exist? Does goodness require the presence of evil? What begins as a philosophical debate becomes a profound play in which Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis boldly address the greatest questions of all time. 

Famed psychoanalyst Doctor Sigmund Freud is dying of cancer, having recently escaped to London from Nazicontrolled Austria. He summons the young novelist, essayist, and late convert to Christianity, C.S. Lewis to his London home to discover why the brilliant intellectual and former atheist would "abandon the truth for a lie". God, love, sex, morality, evil and the meaning of life are burning questions, especially on the day England enters the Second World War - and only two weeks before Freud will end his own life. Despite their clash of beliefs, the imminent threat of war leads the men to startling revelations about themselves, and to their common ground. 

Inspired by the bestselling book "The Question of God" by Harvard's Doctor Armand M. Nicholi, Jr., Mark St. Germain's brilliant script sparkles with wit, surprising humour, and poignant insights into these great influential minds.
