DanceHouse presents Spirit – Bangara Dance Theatre Vancouver 2019! Drawn from 65,000 years of culture, Australia’s Bangarra Dance Theatre presents foundational work, seemingly pulled from the very land itself. In their first visit to Vancouver, Bangarra brings a selection of their extraordinary 30-year repertoire that weaves together totemic storytelling, performance and rich musical scores.
A key part of the resurgence of Indigenous dance making, the company is committed to sharing the cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with audiences around the world. Tracing an unbroken song-line, Spirit gives voice to a cosmos of plants, animals, and ancestral medicine, laid down one step at a time. Dance becomes a form of ceremony and celebration between the people, the land, and creation itself.
DanceHouse connects Vancouver audiences and the local arts community to the international world of dance by presenting exceptional companies that are recognized for their excellence, innovation, and international reputation. Over the past eleven seasons, DanceHouse has presented vibrant and inspiring companies from Canada and around the world. In addition to the performances on stage, DanceHouse offers a suite of engagement opportunities and a chance for members of the general public and the local artistic community to engage with the presented artists and their work.
DanceHouse is a program of the Seismic Shift Arts Society which is a provincial non-profit society and a federally registered charitable organization. Charitable registration number 86128 4255 RR0001.
