The Vancouver Art Gallery is hosting their signature nighttime art, music, and performance event, FUSE, this Friday June 17th from 8:00pm to 1:00am.
Since its inception in July 2005, thousands of Fuse-goers have converged at the Gallery for this unique adult event. Live performances in the Gallery spaces, DJs, eclectic Gallery tours and unexpected surprises have made Fuse Vancouver’s favourite see-and-be-seen event.
Friday’s FUSE will kick off the summer season with a surrealism theme, “so trade in that iPhone for a lobster, and leave expectations at the door.” Performers include House of La Douche dance troupe, MOVE the company that creates surreal spectacle and movement in the gallery, The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, Neworld Theatre mash-up of surrealist manifestoes, poetry, drama and contemporary “found text”, and baritone singer & performance artist Joel Klein will sing Surreal opera in the Rotunda, accompanied by Karen Lee Morlang on piano.
Our city is known for its arts and culture, including this very unique event (that I hear everyone rave about each year). After last night’s despicable display downtown let’s try to get back to normal in Vancouver and celebrate what we do have – and what a group of unruly criminals cannot take away.
Admission for FUSE is $22.50 and if you would like to experience one of summer’s best night time events, I have two pairs of tickets and a special gift shop prize to give away. As surrealism is the theme, the Vancouver Art Gallery store is also giving each winner a Dali clock (that has “dripping clocks” on it). Here’s how you can enter to win one of these packages for FUSE tomorrow night:
I will draw two winners (who will each get a pair of tickets and the Dali clock) at 10:00am tomorrow, Friday June 17, 2011. This event is 19+. Please enjoy responsibly and plan a safe trip home.
Update The winners are @tkwan23 & Judy Bishop!
