Sold Doubt wraps dance series

Dancer Angel Jutzi

Are you ready for pure visceral physicality?

‘SOLD DOUBT’ is a contemporary dance show set to rock music that will blow audiences away March 26 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The performance will straddle the line between art and entertainment, challenging our deepest held definitions of each, says MOVE artistic director Josh Beamish.

“Audiences are invited to laugh at our collective addiction to the pop culture machine, as dance, theatre and instrumental renditions of popular songs come together to present an unorthodox physical parody,” he says.

Incorporating some iconic rock music from the band, No Doubt, it explores society’s adulation of the pop-culture idols, which are created and later disposed of post-15 minutes of fame.

The bold work juxtaposes “the power of the fans” against the power of “the suits” in a metaphoric blur of seemingly unrelated items. Perfume ads, photo shoots, product placements, and dance, all come together to reveal a tale of just a girl, her band, and a shopping cart full of oranges.

The mastermind is Beamish, the founder of MOVE: the company. He’s an accomplished dancer who brings pure visceral physicality to his performance, and incorporates the traditional and the contemporary with an expertise that is truly impressive.

It’s the final offering in the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society’s Dance Series, and tickets are at the Centre Box Office at 604.391.SHOW or www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.
