I've been commissioned to design video projections for Dancers Dancing's piece Extra Extra, at the Firehall Arts Centre from December 1-4th.

Judith Garay, choreographer, has been a longtime colleague of mine, but this is the first time I've been invited to enter into the live performances as a projection designer!

The work is about media, war, sports and entertainment, and has never been performed in its entirety: an earlier production had the misfortune to lose Kevin Bergsma, fabulous dancer, on the DAY of the SHOW to a serious injury!

Choreographed by Judith Garay, artistic director of Dancers Dancing, with commissioned music by Theodore Hamilton, costumes by Margaret Jenkins, lighting by John Carter and video by Flick Harrison.  Extra Extra will be performed by ten expressive, strong and versatile dancers of Dancers Dancing.

I am looking to collect as many FREE TV's as possible between 11 and 4 pm on Saturday Sept 11.

I need them for a theatre show with Conspiracy / Gasheart theatre.

I'll have a vehicle and a power adapter to test the tv's out on the spot. Old, new, rabbit ears, rca-input or cable... I want it!

I think it costs you $75 to recycle an old tv these days so I can solve that problem for you.

Please email me: flick at flickharrison.com with your address (with cross street so i can map my tv hunt efficiently) and phone number so I can call to confirm.

Thanks,

Flick Harrison

Josh Hite and Flick Harrison mentored some volunteer photographers at the Vancouver Drawdown this past weekend - if you don't know the event, it's the first one ever, and the photos should explain it all.

There was a Chalk Drop at community centres around the city, and various free public drawing stations to draw dancers, paint with your bike (!) and draw on the sidewalk!

Join in next year!!!

I'm mentoring photographers and shooting stills at the Vancouver Drawdown event this weekend with my main man Josh Hite! If you're interested in learning to shoot photos and capture the moment, draw on the sidewalk with a bunch of cool artists, or draw live dancers, come on down!

I've been shooting the fabulous works of Ballet BC for some time now. They've crossed the digital rubicon and have begun posting short clips online.

Check this one out from Ignite by Emily Molnar.

I recently cut a new promo for everybody's favourite experimental dance troupe, the Tomorrow Collective. It's about Brief Encounters, the regular TC event that throws two artists together to come up with an original performance in two weeks.

Here's a video promo I made several months ago for FUTURISTI, Bella Luna's re-mount of the 1920's Italian futursit scripts.

It's a wacky, unpredictable and absurd piece - but don't let me go on talking, you should watch it yourself...

Last night I had the chance to shoot Theatre Terrific's production of The Glass Box, a play about sexuality and disability.  It's a mind-blowing show, mostly because of the honesty of the content, and the fact that its such an unusual and fascinating topic.

VANCOUVER, BC: Theatre Terrific is pleased to present its new work, The Glass Box, a voyeuristic glimpse into the secret lives of people and their passions. Fresh from its debut in Victoria, The Glass Box opens in Vancouver Feb 18 - 28.

The Glass Box follows a 54-year-old wife and mother, a 23-year-old woman living with quadriplegia and a 32-year-old man with Down Syndrome who find themselves trapped in off-beat talk show. They are given the chance to be the iconic figure of their fantasies. The icons answer dangerous questions with hilarious abandon, as Cleopatra unrolls from her carpet, Sophia Loren sways through her famous striptease and Brad Pit lands the big fish.

Just finished a promo trailer for Theatre Conspiracy's new show, Live From a Bush of Ghosts.

The trick was to capture live video projections, two dj's, and a dancer.

And FYI, the HD fullscreen settings on Vimeo look AWESOME.

I just made a new promo for the Tomorrow Collective's Brief Encounters show. Looking at the whole montage together, it's awesome - so many different art forms, so much bizarre mash-up entertainment!

The show puts pairs of artists together for the first time, with two weeks to create a live performance for a 3-night show at the Anza club. I did one with Take 5 and it was the most challenging creative thing I've ever done.

Launched in November
2005, Brief Encounters is
an ongoing performance
series designed to push
boundaries and fuse
artistic practices.
