OURO’s new work, Fire06 will premiere at Dancing on the Edge this July!!!

OURO Collective presents excerpts of FIRE 06, a work-in-progress that takes the Firehall Arts Centre’s location and its surrounding neighbourhoods as a site for historical exploration. This project is part of OURO’s larger inquiry into the effects of Vancouver’s shifting urban landscape and the places that are meaningful to the various members of the collective. Informed by research into Indigenous and colonial history through consultation, interviews, and archival material, OURO Collective showcases a quin-
tet of dancers that fuse hip-hop, waacking, breaking, popping, and contemporary dance. By discovering past iterations of a building or a neighbourhood, the collective hopes to work against cultural amnesia.
