Immigrant Lessons is a dance/art collective created to promote cultural pluralism through: dance, music, fashion, media, and visual design. It is the soul child of the collaborative efforts of two professional artists, Kevin Fraser and Alyssa Amarshi. These two dance professionals have decided to merge their 13 years of combined experience to tackle issues that have been prominent both in their professional, as well as their personal lives. Bringing together member’s Jason Bempong, Sophia Gamboa, Marisa Gold, Sharon Lee, and Joshua Ongcol added further nuance and depth to their artistry. The collective’s work explores themes such as: sexual orientation and gender identity, feminism, racial discrimination, cultural erasure and appropriation, intersectionality, Queerness, shadism, toxic masculinity and gender complexes, as well as mental illness. Immigrant Lessons is a combined front to aid in the creation of more opportunities in: dance, stage performance, film, urban performance, concert dance, as well as community development for POC and other marginalized communities. Immigrant Lessons utilizes: street dance, experimental practices, and contemporary process to inform their work and context. Notable performances and collaborations include: Pattern Nation, Sleepless Mindz, Ted Talk, Junofest, Basscoast Music Festival, Shambhala Music Festival, Vines Art Festival, Kimmortal and 333, Vancouver Street Dance Festival, New Works, as well as the Juno award winning A Tribe Called red and Juno nominated SHAD. They are the creators of Vancouver’s first experimental movement battle IMPACT.

Slim (AKA Kevin Choo) is a multi disciplinary artists facilitator focusing on relationship development through the cultivation of urban arts expressions. Specializing in dance, DJing, freestyle rap, visual arts and music production he has much to teach and share. His focus on relationships and learning mean that the facilitation of the experience is primarily through games, activities, and entertainment.

Born on earth, Rubix (AKA Ryan De Guzman) was a child of imagination and sound. Raised in a thunderous atmosphere, his voice was forged with fire behind it. During youth, he discovered his ability to manipulate words and rhymes on rhythm. Developing a hyper-awareness of self and sensitivity to energies around him, he began a journey that his soul predestined many lifetimes ago. This wizard-warrior wields the sword of light, dueling any dark magicians who may threaten his friends and family. Rubix expands his personal power through the study of inner-alchemy, harmonics and manifestation. Equipped with crowd rocking abilities, introspection rhymes and dualistic freestyles, this sonic sage is a force to be reckoned with.
