World Premiere

Two of Vancouver’s hottest young choreographic talents shine in an evening of high-energy dance conceived especially for the NAC.

In Josh Martin’s dramatic solo, Leftovers, he pushes the body as a memory bank, fusing street dance, capoeira, and modern moves in an explosive exploration of muscle recall.

Amber Funk Barton creates a new solo, Surrender (an NAC co-production), designed to showcase her unique style of fiercely physical hybrid movement. Barton’s dreamy duet, Hero & Heroine, balances precise physicality with sensitivity of touch as she and Martin experience curiosity, wonder, courage, and desire. This is visceral, dynamic dance and supremely urban-cool.
