Barbara Lindenberg will be presenting her final MFA dance project for the School for the Contemporary Arts on August 18 moved to August 22, 2011, 8 pm, at the WISE Hall in Vancouver. Admission is by donation.

  • A Thousand Mountains brings Barbara Lindenberg’s choreography to the charming dancefloor of Vancouver’s Wise Hall. From unsettlingly silent lip-synching to slow motion depictions of crowd surfing, each dance creates a world on its own and in relation to others. Best performed in informal environments, Barbara’s dances are short events of a depictive nature. These highly accessible works present a synthesis of simplicity, complexity, absurdity, and optimism.

Barbara Lindenberg is a choreographer/performer who creates contemporary dance for the stage as well as site-specific works. She had the pleasure of carrying forward research and creation as a guest with the Amsterdam Master of Choreography (AMCh) at the Amsterdamse Hoogeschool voor de Kunsten this past spring/summer.

She has worked with songwriters and composers including Jennifer Castle, Dave Chokroun, Eric Chenaux, John Sherlock, Dale Morningstar, Jason Benoit, Jonathan Adjemian, Taylor Rankin and Michael Overton. While she most often creates and performs her own choreography she has also performed dances by Marie France Forcier, Learie McNicolls, Megan English, Aimée Dawn Robinson, Hope Terry, Magali Charrier, Sara Porter, Denise Duric, Allen Kaeja and others.

Her dances have been presented by Nuit Blanche (Toronto), Just for Laughs Street Festival (Toronto), Fringe Shanghai, Series 808 Season Finale, AWOL Gallery’s wHole exhibition, Lab Cabaret, A Month of Sundays, Au Revoir Darling, and Up Darling. Barbara has also presented sets of dances independently at a variety of informal venues in Vancouver and Toronto.
