that will take live performance to three pristine locations in British Columbia’s rainforest in September 2013.
A collaboration of performance and film, it will take the viewer on an unexpected and spectacular journey into the visceral wilderness of our coast and of ourselves. We will create dances that are interwoven with nature—a metaphor for our intimacy with the natural world and a celebration of this amazing place.
The videos will take the viewer into the dance to not just see what the dancing is like but to feel what its like to be within the dance in the British Columbia rainforest.The video and still imagery created during this adventure will be used by our partners Raincoast Conservation Foundation to promote awareness and protection of wild habitats along the coast.Our goal is that our images, and footage, will go viral through our online community on social media and those communities of our partners and supporters, so that this rare performance and wild place can reach people everywhere.
Here’s to art, nature, and culture!
