From March 2 – 23, 2013 the Vancouver International Dance Festival 2013 will feature dance companies from New Zealand, Denmark and Canada. These dance companies will expose Vancouver to the most diverse styles of dance through performances, exhibitions and workshops.
The festival supports the public awareness of culturally diverse contemporary dance through the presentation of high quality dance performances and workshops. Featured performers are chosen based on their ability to utilize the body as an instrument of communication, and their proven desire to advance the art of contemporary dance through innovation, experimentation, rigour and physical discipline. These standards are expected to increase audiences and provide a sustaining body of patrons of dance, resulting in the support and growth of new culturally diverse contemporary dance works.
This three-week long festival will showcase performances at the Roundhouse, Scotiabank Dance Centre, Vancouver Playhouse, W2 at the Woodwards’ building and the Vancouver Art Gallery Offsite installation. Visit the website for more information on performances and specific dates.
The Vancouver International Dance Festival also hosts master classes, workshops, exhibitions and drawing sessions. For more information including dates and how to sign up, click here.
