A MASH-UP OF CUTTING-EDGE COLLABORATIONS
Brief Encounters is an interdisciplinary performance experiment designed to fuse disciplines and push artistic boundaries. Since 2005, over 200 artists have been paired together to create short works in only two weeks. What’s the catch? Each artist comes from a different discipline - past pairings include chef & bhangara dancer; opera singer & comedian; DJ & soprano. We’ll bring together a sensational mash-up from Brief Encounters - you’ll wanna be there!
“... it pushes artists into scary new territory... it’s about the experiment—and the atmosphere makes the audience willing to take risks and get into the fun.” - Georgia Straight
