Event details


Dance Victoria’s Dance Days

Now in its 10th year, Dance Days is a unique, “experiential” event. Over ten days each January, the public is invited to participate in free classes at studios all over the city; watch demonstrations of dance, such as flamenco, belly dance or ballet; see new professional work in development by Victoria and Vancouver artists; participate in discussions and roundtables; and meet and mingle with artists and dance presenters.


Rough Cuts
January 25 + 26, 2019.
Informal showings performed under work lights and without costume or makeup. Join a group of visiting dance presenters from across the country and participate in a meaningful discussion with the artists.

Sølvi Edvardsen’s MAN • McPherson Playhouse
January 25, 2019. *One performance only*
In MAN, Adhana uses only a small sitting stool as his partner to embody the struggles of a bicultural identity, while considering who is he? Where does he come from? At the heart of the work is Edvardsen’s exploration of how we put limits on ourselves based on our life experiences.

MAN is at the crossroads of two cultures. It acts a dialogue between Norwegian choreographer Sølvi Edvardsen and South Asian dancer Sudesh Adhana, and questions identity and what it means to be human. At the heart of the work is her exploration of how we put limits on ourselves - draw lines and boundaries  - based on our experiences, especially if you have a bi-cultural identity.
 
See www.dancevictoria.com for further events of Dance Days -- including a “choreography walk”;  a roundtable discussion about the state of contemporary dance in the Nordic countries and India; and more.
