Check Out the Vancouver International Dance Festival Next Month
- February 27, 2020
The Vancouver International Dance Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary this March. Taking place at various venues throughout Vancouver from March 6 to 28, the festival presents a diverse and exciting lineup of performances and workshops by contemporary dance artists from Vancouver, Canada, and all around the world.
Among some of the highlights include Hungary’sFerenc Fehér who will be performing his piece, The Station. Conceptually, it explores a supernatural, mysterious force that animates Fehér and co-creator Dávid Mikó as they dance in an organic and mechanical way. Another must-see is Modus Operandi, a Vancouver-based troupe performing improvisationally to a score. The work moves through the concepts of shifting perspectives, invisibility, and rhythm as a motor for dynamic possibility.
There are also quite a few of free performances held at the Roundhouse Exhibition Hall and the Woodward’s Atrium, featuring a Bharatanatyam-inspired contemporary duet from Toronto’s inDANCE, and a collaboration from Vancouver’s Now or Never Crew and Boogaloo Academy, which combines high-flying energetic hip-hop and breakdancing with motivating philosophies that aim towards empowering the next generation of artists.
Many of the venues VIDM hosting VIDF performances are walking distance from the Georgian Court Hotel Vancouver, making the festival a really great and accessible way to enjoy some local culture.
