A beautiful work of dance that debuted at the Firehall Arts Centre a decade ago is being revisited once again, this time at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.
From the creators:
In 2003 choreographer Andrea Nann collaborated with pottery artist and Chinese ink painter Wayne Ngan (Hornby Island) and contemporary dance artists Alison Denham (Vancouver) and Kate Holden (Toronto) to create INK, a 40 minute dance performance inspired by Wayne Ngan’s holistic and embodied creative process of ‘making the invisible visible’. The piece was conceived on the beaches of Hornby Island, but has always been presented in theatrical venues. Now, 10 years later, the artists re-open the creation process during a 5-day artistic residency at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Here they will explore the deeper connections to nature and culture that are embedded in the work, excavating intersections where dance, visual art, classical landscapes and contemporary culture can interconnect and transform.
On July 25th, Dreamwalker Dance will dive deeper into INK, featuring the work of Wayne Ngan, Kate Holden, and Alison Denham.
Tickets for this event are $25.00, and can be purchased either by phone (604-662-3207 ext. 200 or 206 ) or online (click here).
Admission is free for Dreamwalker Dance members who renew their memberships, and for new members.
