      DanceHouse has just announced that it will present the West Coast premiere of an evocative work by winter guests this summer.

      The dance company from Norway will perform Story, story, die., an evocative work choreographed by artistic director Alan Lucien Øyen, at the Vancouver Playhouse on June 22 and 23.

      “Following the incredible success of Kidd Pivot’s Revisor, we are particularly thrilled to welcome Norway’s thrilling contemporary dance/theatre company, winter guests, as part of DanceHouse’s 2022 season, following an earlier season postponement due to the pandemic,” says DanceHouse artisic and executive director Jim Smith in a news release.

      “Drawing from real-life experiences that oscillate between the absolute concrete and totally abstract," adds Smith, "Øyen’s Story, story, die. is a masterly narrative work with hyper-detailed choreography that both challenges our notion of love and happiness and unites us in our collective search for meaningful connection in an increasingly disconnected world.”

      Tickets for Story, story, die. are priced from $35, and you can find them here.
