Dance In Vancouver

INFORMATION FOR VISITING PRESENTERS.

Canadian West Coast Dance Platform: 12th Edition
November 20-24, 2019

There are global stories in everything – Amber Funk Barton, dance artist

Running since 1997, Dance In Vancouver is 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 the 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 learn about an upcoming new generation of choreographers, and to see established artists who work here. Presenters can meet colleagues from across Canada, build connections with the local dance scene, and explore new possibilities for collaboration. Dance In Vancouver seeks to engage in dialogue around residencies, creativity and community engagement.
Curator: Dieter Jaenicke, Director of internationale tanzmesse nrw in Düsseldorf, Germany.
