The first Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies performance of the calendar year brings renowned dancer Lisbeth Gruwez to Kelowna with her critically acclaimed It’s going to get worse and worse and worse my friend…
The concept, choreography and dramatic dance is Gruwez at her best. The performance is a combination of choreography, light, and fragments of speech by the notorious American televangelist Jimmy Swaggart. The show is created by the performance group Voetvolk and put on by UBC Okanagan’s Theatre 26.
It’s going to get worse and worse and worse my friend… is in Kelowna for two nights only—Friday, January 16, and Saturday, January 17, at the Mary Irwin Theatre at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, in downtown Kelowna. Both shows are at 8 p.m.
Theatre 26 is a small company of Bachelor of Fine Arts students in Interdisciplinary Performance, who hold work-study positions to run University Theatre. They learn how to promote live productions, hang and focus lights, and run the sound and lighting booth for in-house and touring productions. University Theatre serves as a venue for the Department of Creative Studies for study, rehearsal and public performances, both for the campus community and the general public.
It’s going to get worse and worse and worse my friend… is part of UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies performance series, made possible through the generous support of the Central Okanagan Foundation. Tickets are $20, or $15 for students/seniors, and can be purchased at the UBC Okanagan bookstore or at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.
