Speaking of Dance - Future Memory
When: Thu, Nov. 26, 2020 | 11 AM
Additional Info: Co-presented by SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs
DanceHouse’s new online series Speaking of Dance focuses the spotlight on the exceptional artists who have previously presented work on the DanceHouse stage. We will ask each of our alumni artists the same questions, centred around upcoming creative practice and projects, as well as their individual perspectives and histories. Utilizing the theme of future works is intended both as a protest against the uncertainty of our times, as well as a call to creativity and the importance of hope.
The first edition in the series features Jacob Boehme (Ilbijerri Theatre Company), Hervé Koubi (Compagnie Hervé KOUBI), Sonia Destri Lie (Companhia Urbana de Dança), and Vanessa Goodman (Action at a Distance). This event runs for one hour, and is free to the public!
This series will feature eight artists from across the continents sharing 10-minute video presentations about their inspirations and plans for the future.
These events are intended to offer an interactive and live quality. Get ready to engage in meaningful conversations and dialogue via a live chat during the video-streaming. Moderators will select questions from the online chat sessions, allowing for the speakers to personally respond to questions.
We acknowledge that this event take place on the Traditional Coast Salish Lands including the Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) Nations. Viewers may be watching from other territories.
