About “SOLD DOUBT”
MOVE: the company, in association with Dancing on the Edge, presents the Vancouver premiere of SOLD DOUBT, a contemporary dance rock concert, and the newest, exciting, full-length work by Vancouver’s wunderkind of dance – Josh Beamish. Performed to instrumental renditions of iconic rock group No Doubt’s Greatest Hits, SOLD DOUBT blends high-octane physicality with witty theatrics, as it plays on public perceptions of the popular music industry. Making it’s way through the hits, the ballads, the dance remixes and the obscure songs you never knew you loved, SOLD DOUBT blurs the lines between art and entertainment, dance and theatre, and comedy and tragedy. Using No Doubt as a platform to explore our greater addiction to the idols we create – and then dispose of – the work juxtaposes the power of the fans against the power of the suits. The perfume ads, photo shoots, product placements, clothing lines, YouTube homages, lights, costumes and the dance, all come together to reveal a tale of a girl, her band and a shopping cart full of oranges. Featuring six members of MOVE: the company and Special Guest Jesse Tyler of Atlanta Ballet, SOLD DOUBT is a Vancouver performance event you won’t want to miss.
