This new work by Vancouver’s All Bodies Dance Project was created in a collaborative process to explore the theme of “home” through movement, text, narrative, and imagery.
Examining themes of belonging and displacement through a Jewish lens, this piece explores how our private lives overlap and intersect with those of our neighbours in urban living, sharing the many unique stories contained within a community. In researching and creating this work, experienced professional dancers of diverse abilities joined with members of the JCC Inclusion Program, serving adults with mental health challenges and developmental disabilities to explore the personal movement language of the project contributors through a choreographic process that values community, difference, and care.
Presented as part of the 2023 Chutzpah! Festival.
