From the Promoter
OMNIKA IN MOTION: A 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
We invite you to join us as Omnika in Motion celebrates our 5 year anniversary and the Vancouver debut of our full length theatrical show, "Echoes". Come celebrate five years of storytelling, bizarre theatrics and movement. Omnika has worked with performers of many disciplines over the years and we are looking forward to celebrating the collective nature of our group with solos, group numbers and duets.
Tantalizing Dance and Aerial Performances by:
Isabella Jade and Soma Nova
Other Special Guests
And musical stylings by:
‘’A theatrical dance exploration on the light and shadow that resides in us all. What happens when we deny these shadows? How can we integrate them in a meaningful, healthy way? We cannot heal our collective external shadows (violations of human and environmental rights), without first working on the internal.” These themes will be explored through a fusion of dance, aerials, and shadow play on stage. The seven characters weave between genres with fluidity using props, lights and shadow play to create a dynamic performance.
The first thing you notice on a Tailor album is the texture, it's sensual, wound with found sounds swept from a dusty floor.
One part porch rocking chair stomp, one part dream folk, he has toured both acoustic main stages and underground electronic music festivals. Some highlights are the Shambhala festival in Canada, the Fusion festival in Berlin, and various folk festivals across North America.
The Tailor is the main musical project of Tarran Gabriel, a man from the West coast of Canada. He has released three Albums, and One Ep,
The new album " The Salt " is an ocean faery tale, about a man who leaves to cross the sea and begin a new life for his family, but goes down in a storm, and can only return after a long dance with the siren queen.
It blends elements of Balkan Beat, orchestral folk, and ambient sound, into a Dark blue Sea of an album. It has had limited indie release in May of 2010 and will be re-released on
DiViNiNG Records in Spring 2011, on vinyl and download.
A short film of the story will be finished in the new year, a tale told with underwater puppetry and a sailboat made of sticks. Tours of North America and Europe are being planned for Spring 2011
