19:00-19:30 – Laban Theatre

The evening begins with TaSTE (Tracking and Smart Textiles Environments) at the Laban Theatre. Initiated by Professor Megumi Masaki from Brandon University and Dr Bob Pritchard from The University of British Columbia, the project explores technologies that capture physical movement, transforming the human body into a musical instrument, and a musical instrument into movement.

19:30-21:00 – various dance studios

A special highlight in this year’s CoLab is a collaboration with the University of Southern California (USC). In Laban Studio 13, you can see three collaborations between USC choreographers and TL composers between 19:30-21:00.

The evening concludes with CoLab 14. Music to Move to: Jazz & Improvisation, a project led by Paul Clark and Suzy Willson from Clod Ensemble.
