SOTTO 51 - Dance Performance By OURO Collective in Vancouver on Saturday, September 17, 2022
Saturday, September 17, 2022, 1930 - 2030
As the Vancouver landscape is constantly shifting, we ponder what history is lost and forgotten. Through SOTTO 51, we research, remember, and celebrate Block 51, 61, and 71, commonly known as Robson Square, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and Provincial Law Courts–an area of the unceded Coast Salish territory and the City of Vancouver that is significant to the street dance community and personally to OURO Collective members.

For more information and to donate:

With SOTTO 51 we are considering how changes in our urban landscape effect personal memory and cultural amnesia, and how an erased past effects future generations. Our research starts with the indigenous history of Robson Square (through consultation from the Aboriginal Programs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design), followed by the history of the colonial site that Robson Square represents to present day and also looking at what the future holds for the site. We have and will be talking to various historians, dancers, architects (Arthur Erickson Foundation), and various shop keepers in the area and invite you to share your stories and any information that you would like to share by sending us and email at:

Join us on September 17th, 2022 at Robson Square to watch OURO Collective's live performance of SOTTO 51. The performance is open to the public and by donation.
