Want to enjoy an intimate contemporary dance performance that feels deeply personal? DanceHouse, in partnership with SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs, presents the legendary Louise Lecavalier in her latest contemporary solo work Stations at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. Choreographed and performed by Lecavalier, Stations explores the ebb and flow of movement and memories that live in the body. Dance International Magazine hailed it a “kinetic marvel” and we’re guessing they just might be the experts on the subject.
When: November 23-26
Where: SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts
Cost: From $65.10

Curious about the world of altitude cycling? Come see firsthand how gruelling and emotional the ride was for Daniel Himalayan Life CEO, founder Daniel Burgi and five friends who filmed their challenging high-altitude cycle over Khardung La Pass and Chang La Pass — two of the world’s highest mountain passes. This film premiere also includes a keynote address by Burgi with stories of his recent trip to the Himalayas. Plus, hear from a few Altitude cyclists as they aim to fundraise $300,000 for Himalayan Life’s work of protecting, nurturing and educating children in the Himalayas. A high-adrenaline film and a good cause—that’s a double win.

It’s a Pulitzer Prize-winning contemporary opera with the aim to generate conversation and awareness around child and youth trafficking and sexual exploitation. The Canadian premiere of Angel’s Bone (as part of Indiefest) features composer Du Yun, who recently won this year’s Vilcek Prize in Music, and Royce Vavrek, and includes bold multimedia design elements and a heavy subject matter that is meant to incite conversation and action. To this end, each performance is preceded by a 30-minute pre-show talk highlighting a different theme addressed in Angel’s Bone to provide viewers with a lens through which to think about and experience the work as well as a Q&A with members of the artistic team.
When: November 25-27
Where: Annex Theatre
