Metamorphosis Butoh

Wed, Feb 21 - Sat, Feb 24

Shadbolt Centre For The Arts, 6450 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5G 2J3, Canada map

Choreographed by Argentinian Artist Gustavo Collini-Sartor, Metamorphosis Butoh
explores the spirit of death and rebirth, a recurring theme in the Japanese aesthetic
of Butoh. Inspired by the work of Kazuo Ohno, co-founder of Butoh, this dance
stems from the premise that transformation is essential to the continuum of life
and personal growth. With its strong visuals and colorful imagery, a trademark of
pataSola dance, Metamorphosis Butoh metaphorically uses the transformation of
the caterpillar to reflect on one’s life journey.

The Barber of Seville

Sat, Feb 24 - Sat, Mar 3

Shadbolt Centre For The Arts, 6450 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby, BC V5G 2J3, Canada map

Count Almaviva is in love with the young and beautiful Rosina; Rosina is in love with the poor student Lindoro; Rosina’s guardian Dr. Bartolo wants to marry her for her inheritance and has imprisoned her in his house; Don Basilio the music teacher is helping Dr. Bartolo with his treacherous scheme; and Figaro, the town barber, is helping Count Almaviva in his romantic quest, while cleverly manipulating all the players. This brightest star in Gioacchino Rossini’s repertoire is his comic masterpiece filled with romance, deception, mistaken identities and glorious music as only Rossini could write. Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) has stood the test of time not only as one of the ‘top 20’ operas performed, but it has been famously parodied in Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker and Homer Simpson cartoons and the overture is played in the Beatles film Help! See and hear this work of art come alive at the James Cowan Theatre. Don’t miss it! Sung in Italian with English surtitles
RUNS: February 24, March 1 & 3 @ 8:00pm February 26 & 28 @ 2:00pm
