Gathering Light

Manuel Roque (Montreal)
bang bang
Roundhouse Performance Centre, March 13-16, 8pm*
A celebrated dance virtuoso, soloist Manuel Roque presents the West Coast premiere of his highly acclaimed bang bang — an electrifying, visceral ode to the physical demands of the body.

The West Coast premiere of Trust is a thought-provoking duet created and performed by choreographer Tedd Robinson and composer Charles Quevillon.

Daina Ashbee (Montreal)
KW Production Studio, March 27-30, 5pm*
A powerful installation performance, Serpentine is a bold exploration of the impact of repetitive movement to evoke a strong reaction from its audiences, allowing the performer to fully occupy not only the physical space, but also the time and attention of her viewers.

Varhung – Heart to Heart
Vancouver Playhouse, March 29 & 30, 8pm*
Taiwan’s esteemed indigenous dance-theatre company, Tjimur Dance, performs the Canadian premiere of Varhung – Heart to Heart — a lyrical and vulnerable exploration of the complexities of the human heart.
