The show follows Melissa, who visits a junkyard and is immersed in a fantastical world where instruments such as a wheel barrow bass, a garbage can cello, a paper maché violin, and a myriad of percussive instruments made from trash form an orchestra that tickles the imagination while redefining the meaning of junk.

Ballet Preljocaj: Empty moves (parts I, II & III) - Vancouver

The Dance Centre's 2014-2015 Global Dance Connections contemporary dance series opens with the world-renowned Ballet Preljocaj. Created by the company's celebrated French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj, Empty moves (parts I, II & III) is set to the infamous 1977 recording of John Cage's Empty words, when the minimalist composer calmly intoned radically abstracted text to an uncomprehending and increasingly raucous audience. Preljocaj's choreographic response creates an ode to the abstract which exults in pure movement, as a quartet of superb dancers executes a flow of inexhaustible movement with absolute precision and technical skill. Spare, contemplative and sensual, this absorbing work unfolds as an elegant counterpoint to the turbulent score.
