We all live in an entertainment culture. It’s time to take you into the world of enigmatic entertainment. The biggest example of it is life. We don’t know what will happen in the next moment, but we sense and foresee things with our strong imaginations.
Imagination is all the infinite possibilities in reality.
Imagine yourself locked up in a room and the only information you have is that there might be a monster around you. How would you feel? Well, performance art can make you feel that.
Imagination is all the infinite possibilities in reality. Combining this magic of imagination and arts makes one explore the breathtaking performances that depict the mystified story, and is a real treat for the eyes.
In fact, beside the pleasure, arts have other extensive benefits to give back to the community. Find out the impact of arts on Canadian life. Also, would you like to know how Canadians feel about performing arts? Here is an interesting infographic for you.
We know artists use paint/canvas or various materials to create physical art objects but convey emotions with minimal words spoken, and we as an audience often gauge and feel the same sensations. Sadness shows up in a teardrop, anger in a glare, playfulness in a carefree hand gesture, happiness in an ear-to-ear smile and fear in a jitter.
Are you ready to feel some sensations? The Roundhouse, in partnership with Capilano University Bachelor of Performing Arts and Dirty Laundry Creations, and as part of the PuSh Performing Arts Festival, presents the show Presence of Monster.
It is a collective creation gestated in the minds and bellies of 22 artists of diverse disciplines. The beast borne of collective artists speaks and moves at will, and will walk (or crawl or fly) in front of (or behind) you as you watch or listen—or neither.
Startled? Don’t be. Simply come and enjoy the show, on Thu Jan 30–Sat Feb 1, 8pm, at the Roundhouse Performance Centre and Exhibition Hall. For ticket costs or additional information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
