Dance In Vancouver November 22-26, 2017
Information for Visiting Presenters
The 11th edition of Dance In Vancouver takes place November 22-26, 2017. This biennial event began in 1997 and has established itself as a chance for presenters from across North America and around the world to view the eclectic contemporary dance of Canada's West Coast, and to sample a distinctive artistic milieu.
Dance In Vancouver offers a carefully structured and intensive program with:
• mainstage performances featuring some of the West Coast's most exciting and innovative artists;
• informal studio presentations;
• moderated discussions where presenters and artists can network and exchange information and experiences.
What presenters said about DIV:
"We were there to experience the Vancouver dance scene and were immersed which was wonderful."
"Enjoyed connecting with colleagues and meeting new people."
"Lots of inspiring dance, people, and conversations - and we have already had very positive feedback from our network."
"I had such a wonderful learning experience at Dance in Vancouver, not only was the dance of a very high calibre, diverse and risk-taking but the meetings, opportunities for discussion and panellists were all thought-provoking and moved our art form forward."
Dance In Vancouver is based at Scotiabank Dance Centre, regarded as Canada's flagship dance facility, in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Most events take place in the facility, with some special off-site presenter events.
This edition's curator is New Zealand-based producer Adam Hayward.
