Shay Kuebler (Karoshi, Glory) returns to Vernon with raw acrobatic language pollinated by jazz, swing, tap dance and house music.
In true Kuebler style, Telemetry blends together theatricality and martial arts to explore how the body translates sound and energy into a purely physical form. Using interactive lighting, video and music, the human body becomes a satellite transmitting signals that inform what happens on stage.
Partly created right here at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre during his residency in January 2017, Kuebler brings the finished piece back to our stage with glowing reviews from its recent performances at the 2017 Chutzpah! Festival in Vancouver and the Danse Danse Season at Place Des Arts, Montreal.
With a foundation in martial arts, Shay Kuebler has spanned across disciplines in tap, hip hop, neo-classical ballet and contemporary. For the past eight years, Kuebler has created, performed, choreographed and directed for international dance festivals and dance companies across Canada. In 2014, he formed the Radical System Art Society in Vancouver for the purposes of mixing theatre, dance, and martial arts and exploring technique and form in a unique and compelling way.
Telemetry will feature renowned tap dancer Danny Nielsen, one of Canada’s brightest rising tap talents and a hit on international stages. Surrounded by Kuebler and his ensemble, Nielsen is the control tower guiding the ebb and flow of movement, lighting and sound throughout this interactive dance experience.
We will be hosting two dance workshops with Danny Nielsen on Thursday, October 12 at 6:30 for beginner tap dancers and 7:25 for advanced tap dancers. Bring your tap shoes! The price is $20 and includes a ticket to the show. Register at the Ticket Seller Box Office or by calling them at 549-SHOW (7469).
As part of our Outreach Activities, we’ve partnered with the Okanagan Science Centre and their upcoming exhibit! Be sure to stop in at the Science Centre and see Symphony of Science, an exhibit that allows guests to interact and make music/sound with a variety of instruments. The instruments include chimes, drums and a tubulum. Learn about soundwaves before seeing them in action in Telemetry.
Please join us after the show for a talk back with the artists about Telemetry and their creative process.
