Words in Motion
March 18, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - March 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm$20
The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC presents Words in Motion, March 18 & 19, 7:30pm in the Telus Studio Theatre.
Discover how movement breathes life into words with three award-winning narratives interpreted by a trio of distinct choreographers. Argentina’s tragic disappearances recalled by Carmen Aguirre (Something Fierce: Memoirs of a Revolutionary Daughter, 2011) manifest in contemporary Aboriginal dance by Olivia C. Davies. Aislinn Hunter’s haunting meditation on memory The World Before Us, (2014) unfolds with intricate Bharata Natyam gestures by Anusha Fernando. Poignant prose of Nancy Lee’s Dead Girls lay bare in the visceral motions of Paraskevas Terezakis. This evening of brand new works is presented in partnership with The Dance Centre.
