TEDX STANLEY PARK 2018

Angela Brown is excited to be an Energizer at TEDxStanleyPark 2018 on March 3rd.

An Energizer is a short, full-participation performance that energizes the audience and in my case, with healthy movement. Healthy movement begins from the heart.

When we tap into our heart we discover how important it is to express the things we don’t have words for. Her Energizer is called “From the Heart”.

Storytelling

MK peachesMonkey King & Folktales

One of the most enduring Chinese literary characters comes to life to entertain children and adults!

Through mime, magic, jokes, stories and music, the audience will be introduced to the Monkey King and other folktales as well as Chinese music and instruments.

The Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble (VCME) and storytellers, Gerardo Avila and Angela Brown, offer an hour of fabulous music and comedy.

PERFORMANCE ARTIST

Vancouver Art Gallery

Vancouver Art Gallery’s (VAG)  events that took place in November of 2015,  highlighted Evelyn Roth’s wearable art and moving sculptures fro the 1970s. The pieces were choreographed and directed by Angela Brown and were a part of the exhibition  ‘Between Object and Action’ – Transforming Media in the 1960’s and 70s – Oct. 30 – Jan.’16 featuring the work of three artists from the 1970′s.

BACKGROUND: During the late 1960s and early 70s, Vancouver’s art scene was electrified by a spirit of experimentation that challenged the traditional boundaries of painting, sculpture and other media. Blurring these categories, artists introduced the beginning of installation and performance art in Vancouver. This show will highlight the work of “4 key practitioners during this period: Kate Craig and Eric Metcalfe (a.k.a. Dr. and Lady Brute), Gathie Falk, Carole Itter and Evelyn Roth. Angela has been  collaborating with Evelyn Roth since 1999 on a variety of projects including storytelling, dance, visual and performing art and The Nylon Zoo with Evelyn’s spectacular inflatable sculptures and costumes. Angela has toured to Australia, Singapore and Malaysia to work with Evelyn and to perform various works at a number of venues. Evelyn designated Angela as director and choreographer to animate her work  for three events that appeared at the VAG in November 2015  for FUSE,  ‘Pay what you Can’  Tuesday night and Family Fuse.
