      Vancouver dance fans are in for a treat next month with the online Canadian premiere of Body and Soul, performed by Paris Opera Ballet.

      "A work in three distinct parts," reads the info on the DanceHouse website "Body and Soul articulates Pite’s ongoing fascination with conflict, connectedness and the embodiment of the human spirit. The performance begins with voice-over text that describes, in purely physical terms, a scene of conflict between two individuals.

      "Before the performance, there will be a 15-minute pre-recorded exclusive interview with Crystal Pite and the Kidd Pivot creative team, all of whom contributed artistically to the creation of Body and Soul."

      Tickets for Body and Soul are priced at $16.14 solo, $26.14 family, $50 supporter, and $100 sustainer, and you can find them here.
