Founded and produced by The Tomorrow Collective in Vancouver, Brief Encounters is an ongoing multidisciplinary performance experiment designed to fuse disciplines and push artistic boundaries. Artists who have never met before enter into a two-week “under-the-gun” collaborative creation and presentation. 605 Co-director Josh Martin was paired with vocalist/ spoken word artist Prevail (of rap group Swollen Members), collaborating to build a new twist on a classic fable.
