605 Collective coming to Golden

605 Collective is a high-energy dance group that will be kicking off their Canadian tour in Golden on Oct. 25 with their performance of New Animal.

The group is composed of five dancers, three males and two females, and combines primeval movement with a hip contemporary edge that gives them an “urban jungle” style of choreography.

The dance is highly physical and raw and wild and puts the dancers into a very instinctual and animal way of being. The performance has video elements as well that complements the dancers, and co-artistic director Josh Martin says that the audience can expect a very lively show.

“There’s a lot of sweat and a lot of huffing and puffing and I think that the audience can expect a bit of a ride in terms of all the different things that happen over the course of the work,” Martin said.

The piece was commissioned by choreographer Dana Gingras, who has a long history in Canadian dance and founded her own company, Animals of Distinction in 2006. 605 Collective’s tour will take them across B.C. and to eastern Canadian cities such as Toronto and Halifax.

In addition to the show, 605 Collective New Animal will be putting on series of classes and performances for anyone who is interested in learning what goes into their performance. Each of the classes will cost $10 with the first one scheduled for Oct. 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This class will focus on 605’s basic movement vocabulary and the movement concepts found in their performance.  A Q&A session with the performers will follow the class.

The second workshop will be on Oct. 23 and will centre around the creative process behind dance making and will show participants simple methods for composing movement phases and how to devise their own choreography. Other free events are scheduled during the week leading up to the group’s Friday performance. Check out kickinghorseculture.ca for the full schedule of events.
