The reviews are in and Calgary, Edmonton, Portland and Germany can’t all be wrong! Pulitzer Prize and Grammy award-winning composer Caroline Shaw has paired up with our own Vancouver choreographer Vanessa Goodman (whose many impressive credits include working on Beyonce’s film “Homecoming” and Showtime hit “Yellowjackets”) for Music on Main’s Graveyards and Gardens—an atmospheric sound-and-dance installation that meditates on the evolution of memory. The show seamlessly blends dance and music—think: a stage filled with vintage lamps, cables, and plants that all come to life to a cacophony of sounds, like tape decks, record players and wax recordings (all manipulated live by Shaw) that over the course of the performance get stripped down until there’s just one singular sound.
When: April 12-15
