From JOE INK, and celebrated Vancouver Choreographer Joe Laughlin, comes the world premiere of 4OUR, on stage October 1 through October 3, 2015 at 8pm, (with a preview performance on September 30), at the Scotiabank Dance Centre.

Exploring the dynamics of family, the transference of memory, and the singular moments that shape our lives, this emotionally resonant and visually striking performance reflects the unique chemistry and cross-generational relationships between the dancers. Rich in Laughlin’s signature brand of inventive, intricate choreography, he performs alongside dance-greats Gioconda Barbuto, Heather Dotto, and Kevin Tookey, with costumes by Alice Mansell, dramaturgy by Jo Leslie, visuals by Eric Chad and lighting by James Proudfoot.

Oct 1, 2, 3 (Preview: Sept 30)
