BLOOM, wine and dance events in the West End, $10



It’s amazing how creative artists can be when putting together creative events. I love seeing all these different ideas. This is from a press release I got today.

Mascall Dance presents:

BLOOM: Experience dance through the wine’s eye and the comic’s tongue!

Stop in for a taste! Join us for wine, fun and laughter. BLOOM choreographers combine brief kinetic ideas with a sommelier’s wine pairings and a comic who interprets the dances and asks the questions you were afraid to ask!

February 5,12,19 and 26, 4:30 Mingle and Sip (cash bar), 5:15 show.

The event: A sommelier selects a wine for each work based on adjectives each of the 5 choreographers use to describe their dance.  Spectators are invited to sip a soupcon of the wine while viewing a 5 minute excerpt of the dance.   Then a kind but audacious stand-up comic tickles funny bones by interpreting the dance just viewed.  The comic storyteller is able to wittily articulate what is crossing the audience’s mind and has the nerve to say it aloud.  Interpretation is laid bare in a sensorial way.

The series: MascallDance’s creation and performance series BLOOM has been a feature of Vancouver’s West End since 1994. Emerging choreographers apply for BLOOM’s choreographic training, mentoring & editing by Artistic Director Jennifer Mascall, combined with use of the company’s beautiful west end studio.  Over four studio performances, their work-in-progress is sampled by the public in an informal, cocktail hour atmosphere.

The director: Now entering her 40th year of choreography, Jennifer Mascall began her prolific career as a solo improviser and soon received international acclaim. Artist, dance advocate, educator, researcher, teacher and collaborator, Mascall does things others don’t dare to.  She continues to devise ingenious experimental dance projects based on all facets of movement, and remains a luminary in contemporary Canadian dance.
