Presented by SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs in collaboration with Dance House and SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts part of Celebrate Canada 150+.

Three years in the making, Vancouver’s Vanessa Goodman brings the world premiere of Wells Hill to the DanceHouse stage. Seven exceptional dancers splice themes of technology and communication into this intriguing and provocative new work based on the sweeping philosophies of Marshall McLuhan and Glenn Gould. These two Canadian luminaries altered how we consume art and information, and their prescient ideas provide an engaging framework for an exciting, immersive performance that is both visceral and cerebral.
