Performance | Dance In Vancouver



Saudade investigates loss, memory, and the deep longing for something unattainable. Six outstanding male dancers merge elegant balletic lines with street-style dynamism and drive, conjuring up fleeting intimacies in a series of ghostly solos, duets, and group passages, accompanied by a hauntingly beautiful cello score. Joshua Beamish brings together an ensemble whose collective credits include leading companies such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Martha Graham Dance Company and Stephen Petronio.
