Classical Indian Dances in Focus Thursday September 28, 2023 | 12 noon
Experience two beautiful and contrasting styles of classical Indian dance, famed for their intricate movements, percussive rhythms and rich storytelling. Kathak artist Fiana Kawane, Bharata Natyam dancer Shilpa Shankar, and special guests illustrate the range, complexity and musicality of these constantly evolving art forms.
Calle Verde + Jhoely Triana Flamenco Thursday November 9, 2023 | 12 noon
Calle Verde (comprising Maria Avila, Michelle Harding, and Peter Mole) and Jhoely Triana are in the vanguard of a wave of Vancouver artists who honour the traditions of flamenco while experimenting with the form. This double bill features their latest creations in a thrilling performance that showcases flamenco’s technical brilliance, emotional power, and heart-stirring music and singing.
Voirelia Dance Hub Thursday February 29, 2024 | 12 noon
Voirelia’s highly original contemporary dance works draw on sources ranging from psychology and philosophy to literature. Choreographed by Alina Sotskova, De/Formed Revival is inspired by Renaissance art and sculpture: three expressive, finely honed dancers take us on a journey of transformation, exploring how we can emerge from a mould that someone else has built around us – to release the past and embrace change.
This performance includes haze.
Aché Brasil Thursday March 28, 2024 | 12 noon
A performance by Aché Brasil is an explosion of colour, energy and music that embodies the exuberant culture and rhythms of Brazil. The company will demonstrate folkloric Afro-Brazilian dances and music, including the famous dance-martial art of capoeira – an astonishing display of acrobatics, breathtaking kicks and self-defence tactics, accompanied by the irresistible sound of the berimbau.
Dance//Novella Thursday April 25, 2024 | 12 noon
Dance//Novella was founded by former Ballet BC artists Racheal Prince and Brandon Lee Alley, and in four short years has gained a reputation for bold and inspiring creations which blend superlative dancing, rich theatricality, and a commitment to illuminating universal stories with generosity and imagination. This is an exciting opportunity to experience specially selected work from the company’s repertoire.
