In this innovative and exciting new work, OURO Collective and Tangible Interaction collaborate to create a multidisciplinary dance experience. The show aims to engage the public and to break down the separation between performers and audience by creating an interactive and playful environment. HAKO will equally and simultaneously highlight the movement vocabulary and the interactive installations contained in the work, seamlessly bringing both art forms together. The show challenges our relationship to technology and brings back the lost sense of play and curiosity. Currently in development, and premiering at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts May 22-25, 2019.
OURO is an eclectic, Vancouver-based dance collective that uses hip-hop, waacking, breaking, popping, and contemporary dance as the foundation for the creation and production of new work. As individual artists coming from diverse cultural and dance backgrounds, OURO sees collaboration as a catalyst for dialogue, creative innovation, and community building. United around the common goal of pushing the boundaries of how street dance-based works are created and presented, OURO is dedicated to making performances that explore the full range of possibilities and identities the group represents.

“This Vancouver, B.C., dance troupe parlays a variety of street-dance styles into true stage magic, making OURO Collective, to my mind, the indisputable knockout of SIDF so far.”

“Energizing music, fascinating movement, finely articulated statements: Kevin Li’s finger-tutting was completely enthralling — my mouth literally hung open at the way he was able to move his fingers.”
—Carina-Marie Nilsson, Peaks & Harbours
