Canadian West Coast Dance Platform: 11th Edition
Performances | studio showings | events | dialogues | networking + more

INFORMATION FOR VISITING PRESENTERS

This biennial event began in 1997 and has established itself as the leading opportunity for presenters from across North America and around the world to view one of the most vibrant dance scenes in Canada - the eclectic contemporary dance of Canada's West Coast.

Dance In Vancouver offers a carefully structured and intensive program with:
• mainstage performances and studio presentations;
• moderated discussions where presenters and artists can network and exchange information;
• specially curated interactive events.

This is a forum in which to explore the potential for future collaboration, to learn about an upcoming new generation of choreographers, and to see established artists who work here. Dance In Vancouver seeks to engage in dialogue around residencies, creativity and community engagement.

Dance In Vancouver is based at Scotiabank Dance Centre, Canada's flagship dance facility, in the heart of downtown Vancouver, and this edition will also feature a number of off-site events.

This edition's curator is New Zealand-based producer Adam Hayward. We will also be welcoming the Alliance of Canadian Dance Networks, offering a great opportunity to connect with presenters from across Canada.

IndigeDIV

IndigeDIV is an Indigenous-led dance and conversation series hosted by Raven Spirit Dance congruent with Dance In Vancouver. Amidst a groundswell of interest in Aboriginal performance in Canada, conversations around meaningful engagement, Indigenous process and values are vital.  IndigeDIV claims space for Aboriginal artistic practice to be shared and discussed, acknowledging its importance to the fabric of our Canadian society.
