4OUR by Vancouver choreographer Joe Laughlin explores “family dynamics, cross-generational relationships and the singular moments that shape our life’s journey.”
As a quartet, it considers the power of memory and the formation of memories as we navigate the arc of life with injections of melancholy, humour and celebration.
4OUR premiered last October in Vancouver at The Dance Centre. It’s making a comeback with an East Coast tour, stopping at The Fredericton Playhouse in Fredericton, NB, the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB, the Lawrence O’Brien Arts Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL, and the LPSU Hall for the Festival of New Dance in St. John’s, NL. But before performers Laughlin with Gioconda Barbuto, Heather Dotto and Jarrett Siddall board their plane, they’ll be sharing the work again with Vancouver audiences on September 19.
