Davida Monk: Ashes for Beauty
May 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until May 25, 2019
Calgary-based Davida Monk has been an influential figure on the Canadian dance scene for over three decades: this program celebrates her achievements with three pieces.
Her evocative Ashes for Beauty, specially remounted for seven Vancouver dancers, explores ideas of metamorphosis and transformation. Monk dances The Return, a solo created for her by Alberta choreographer Helen Husak; and Paras Terezakis of Kinesis Dance somatheatro premieres a duet performed by Monk and Arash Khakpour, based on the classical Greek tragedy Antigone.
Presented as part of The Dance Centre’s Global Dance Connections series.
