Brief Encounters at Performance Works
Brief Encounters really Fringe-a-fies its programming for its 20th installment, pairing out-of-town artists from the just-ended Vancouver Fringe Festival with local performers of all disciplines. And what a mashup of art form it is! Some of the provocative pairings include Austin, Texas, puppeteer Zeb L. West (left) with visual artist Brendan Tang; Newfoundland media artist Liz Solo with bike activist RedSara; and San Fran bouffon-clown performer Nathaniel Justiniano with dance artist Karen Jamieson. Check out the resulting creations at Performance Works from Thursday through Saturday (September 19 to 21).
