Entre Chien et Loup | James Gnam

ENTRE CHIEN ET LOUP | James Gnam (Vancouver)

Tickets available at the door or in advance online!

“between dog and wolf” is an expression from old French commonly used to describe a time of day when the light is so dim you can’t distinguish a dog from a wolf.

In this new solo work, Gnam embodies multiple layers of the “dog and wolf” expression to explore the thresholds of the familiar and unfamiliar, of safety and threat, of human nature turning wild and uneasiness replacing certainty.
