Vancouver International Dance Festival


The 2020 Vancouver International Dance Festival presents Olivia Shaffer.
Senescence is a personal reflection into my caregiving journey, through my father’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Using movement and text, in collaboration with sound designer Alex Mah, Senescence offers the audience a ceremonial performance, highlighting triumphs and heartaches in a collective embrace of our unavoidable impermanence.

Senescence (/sɪˈnɛsəns/): Biological aging; the gradual deterioration of functional characteristics that occurs in the mind and body.
