DanceHouse begins its second decade with a 2018/2019 season of six productions from Canada and around the globe.
To open its season, DanceHouse will present French Company Wang Ramirez’s new work, Borderline (Oct 26 & 27), which combines b-boy dance battles with martial arts.
In a co-production with SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs and Théâtre la Seizième, Chotto Desh (Nov 21-24) is one of two family-friendly performances this season. From choreographer/dancer Akram Khan, it mixes Kathak dance with storytelling and mime, in an autobiographical view of Khan’s childhood.
The new year begins with Blood on the Dance Floor (Feb 6-9) from Australian Indigenous artist Jacob Boehme. Grounded in Aboriginal dance and storytelling, it incorporates activism, autobiography, and performance.
Also in February comes the world premiere of Revisor (Feb 20-23), from choreographer & director Crystal Pite, and writer Jonathon Young. Creators of the internationally acclaimed Betroffenheit, currently in Vancouver for a limited return engagement, Revisor is a dance/theatre hybrid examining the relationship between people and politics.
Next comes Hieronymus Bosch: The Garden of Earthly Delights from Montreal choreographer, Marie Chouinard. Honouring the 500th anniversary of the Dutch painter, the piece takes inspiration from one of the artist’s most famous works.
Closing out the DanceHouse 2018/2019 season is Viva Momix (Apr 12 & 13), a family-friendly blend of ballet, acrobatics, and circus.
The season will also be accompanied by a series of Speaking of Dance Conversations, pre-show talks, and masterclasses.
