Tickets: Adult $35 | Senior $30 | Student $15
The FINE LINE ~ twisted angels is a one hour multi-media dance performance choreographed by Judith Garay, esteemed Artistic Director of Dancers Dancing.
This piece explores in movement, sound, and image how we perceive our internal and external world. Ephemeral, sometimes transformative, the moments between perceiving, sensing and cognition create a rich tapestry of somatic images. Deborah Meyers from the Vancouver Sun reflects, “The FINE LINE ~ twisted angels is a spooky and mind bending addition to an oeuvre of more than 40 dances.” The World Premier of The FINE LINE ~twisted angels took place on May 23, 2012 at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver B.C. The FINE LINE ~ twisted angels incorporates video images by Flick Harrison, music by Patrick Pennefather, and is performed by three company dancers.
