      Vancouver dance-theatre company The Biting School is presenting a double bill of solo works created and performed by Kelly McInnes (Blue Space) and Arash Khakpour (Melon Piece).

      "In Blue Space, Kelly McInnes explores our intrinsic connection to water," reads the event info released today, "the water that makes up our bodies and the world we inhabit. Full of startling imagery, this deeply-felt solo born of grief and hope explores tensions between the healing and the exploitation involved in our relationship to earth. It is an invitation to remember what we’re made of."

      "Melon Piece is a symbolic portrayal of human dilemmas. It is a story about the primal and maturing self in constant transformation. It is a study of our contradictory desires—those we choose to act upon, and the ones we suppress and repress—through different stages of our lives."

      The performances will take place from March 3 to 5 at 7 pm at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, with a talkback after each show.

      Tickets are priced from $20 to $35 (plus service charge) and you can find them here.
