Dance, art, mime and drumming combine in a feast for the senses at the next In the House concert in Burnaby.
The In the House festival is bringing a series of monthly house concerts to Burnaby in partnership with the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion.
The series kicked off Oct. 5 and continues Nov. 5 with Synesthesia, billed as "a sensory experience to feed the body and soul."
"Experience what it means to remove one sense and heighten the others or to interpret one sense as another," a press release explains the performance. "Through dance, sand art, mime and drumming, get ready to feel your way through good vibrations and tune your eyes to the movements of stunning performances."
The bill for the evening includes Paula Skimin, a dancer, choreographer, adjudicator and dance educator who has been trained in jazz, ballet and tap and who founded the Toronto-based tap dance company Turn on the Tap in 1997.
She's joined by Dianna David, a self-taught dancer who specializes in "movement storytelling," along with Starsha Battrick, described as a "painter, photographer and performer rolled into one squishy jack of all trades."
Also performing will be percussionists Sacha Levin and Ron Stelting. Levin has shared the stage with artists such as Julian Marley, Ron Sexsmith, Sal Ferreras and more. She also serves as a dance accompanist and an instructor, working for organizations such as Arts Umbrella and the Shadbolt Centre. Stelting has been accompanying dance class for more than 20 years and is on staff at Simon Fraser University. He's one of the founders of Vancouver Rhythm and Dance.
The performance is at 4084 MacDonald Ave., with doors at 6:30 p.m. and the show at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $18 regular or $15 for children. See www.inthehousefestival.com/performance-series/.
