1. Tell us about your show.
Dreamscape is a recounting of some of our most memorable dreams through contemporary dance. Rather than using words to describe our experiences we rely on movement, expression and interaction with fellow dancers. The choreography is very physical and is set to an eclectic mix of ambient and energetic songs.
2. Why should someone come see your show?
We all dream! We explore universal themes that people can relate to. Our show is relevant on an emotional level and inspiring on an aesthetic level. Some people are turned off by the idea of modern or contemporary dance but our dance art isn’t overly abstract, it is very accessible and easy to get in to. Dreamscape is the ideal show for anyone wanting to experience beautiful movement and music without pretension.
3. If your show was a cartoon character which cartoon character what would it be, and why?
Dreamscape is like Shrek: entertaining for all ages for different reasons..
4. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?
Bear Dreams presented by For Body and Light looks sweet! Like Viva, this company is doing a fringe festival circuit and I would love for them to have lots of bums in seats!
