Vancouver’s breakout 605 Collective brings their trademark explosive, urban-infused dance in the newly imagined version of their hit Inheritor Album. The work is a collection of short pieces that explores the concepts of inheritance and succession, producing an album of extraordinarily affecting images and movement set to an atmospheric electronic score. Known for their raw athletic power, 605 Collective’s dancers are pushed to the limits of physical possibility against a backdrop of stunning animations by L.A.-based media artist Miwa Matreyek (see Myth and infrastructure, Club PuSh).
605 Collective is a part of the new generation of dance makers, inspired by the exchange between urban and contemporary forms. Marked by a collaborative and evolving style all their own, the company has been capturing critical and audience attention since they debuted in 2006. They’ve recently made waves at the American dance Festival and Fall for dance in New York, as they continue to tour their works across North America.
>> The language they’re inventing is more hip, young and now-feeling than almost anything else out there at the moment. << Georgia Straight
