Jenna Berlyn presents Capsule

Capsule was originally commissioned in 2018 by The Dance Centre as a pop up performance, where thirteen dancers moved along three flights of stairs. It was a site-specific contemporary dance piece performed by professional artists. This iteration for Culture Days is a continuation of the original research. It is a performance of improvisation tasks and choreography made up of familiar and abstract gestures and movement, influenced by the dancer’s chemistry and personal movement contributions. This is a public showing after a very short process, and we hope to continue developing this work after the Culture Days showing. This piece is created by Jenna Berlyn in collaboration with Andrea Cownden, Samantha Krystal, Anya Saugstad and Shay Saver.
