Company 605, formerly known as the 605 Collective, returns to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre with their new work Vital Few. Vital Few is the final show in the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society's 2015/16 Dance series.

Led by artistic co-directors Lisa Gelley and Josh Martin, Company 605 is a Vancouver-based company inspired by urban and contemporary dance forms. With an emphasis on innovated movement the company's works are known for being physically demanding. "We aim to offer a highly athletic art form derived from the human experience, exploring new paths and creative methods to build powerful and engaging performances," says Gelley, recipient of the 2015 Vancouver International Dance Festival Choreographic Award. With a rapidly expanding repertoire, the company has now performed coast to coast in Canada and throughout the USA.

The final weeks of preparation before the show's premiere were spent in residency at the Banff Centre. "Being able to work in a space like the Banff Centre with scenic designer Jesse Garlick, and lighting designer Robert Soundergaard, allowed us to create a visual effect that responds in real time," says artistic co-director Josh Martin. "We produce a mirror like substance using Mylar foil over the stage, the reflections deliver a wonderful amount of shadow work that is truly mesmerizing."

"We wanted to explore the fragility of relationships and discover what happens when groups of people who work together to achieve their goal or objective. What becomes of them when they no longer need to contribute or push," adds Martin, who received Vancouver's 2013 Mayor's Arts Award. "Each performer's own distinct expression, movement, and choice weaves together... the whole greater than the sum of its parts."

Company 605's fresh and ever-evolving aesthetic is pushed to new levels with this innovative piece. Vital Few further explores the essence of unison and togetherness, the negotiation of group dynamics, and the preservation of self within the collective consciousness.

The April 16th performance will be opened by special guest band //AMISTAD//. This local alternative 5-piece band has been surprising music fans and critics with their 2015 album release, LEE.
