DanceHouse presents a 2023-2024 season of seven works from around the globe

The Vancouver dance presenter's season features works from around the globe across multiple genres exploring themes of connection and community. 

Vancouver dance presenter DanceHouse will present a 2023-2024 season of seven works from around the globe across multiple genres exploring themes of connection and community.

“Dance has the power to deeply impact and alter our perspectives,” says DanceHouse artistic and executive director Jim Smith in a media release. “We’re honoured to bring Vancouver audiences the fierce intelligence and visionary storytelling found in the extraordinary works of our 2023/24 season. From the gritty to ethereal, cacophonous to quiet, each performance will revive and reset our notions of home, of belonging, coupled with our relationships with ourselves, with each other, and with the natural world.”

Five companies make their DanceHouse debuts this season, including Spain’s Compañía Rocío Molina’s reinvented Flamenco in Fallen from Heaven (Caída del Cielo), Svāhā! from Toronto’s Nova Dance, and Australia’s Gravity and Other Myths blends circus, cabaret, and a touch of kink with The Mirror. From Norway comes Indigenous choreographer Elle Sofe Sara’s Vástádus eana – The answer is land, and Toronto’s Côté Danse draws inspiration from the mythic story of Odysseus with X (Dix).
