The Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) proudly announces its 2014 Festival Season: a globe-spanning roster of artists and creators who take to the city’s stages from March 7 to 29, 2014.
Guangdong Modern Dance Company with Goh Ballet: Select Works/Mustard Seed
A large-scale work that bridges the Pacific Ocean, Mustard Seed will be performed by dancers from both companies in an evening of vibrant energy and technical wonder.
The production’s name refers to a Buddhist metaphor, in which a grain as tiny as a mustard seed can reveal the wonders of the universe. Qi’s choreography reflects this depth of meaning through a game of physical interactions, whose fluid movements gradually reveal a world of delicate, layered, and ever-changing relationships.
The festival also features a variety of FREE-for-MEMBER performances (Membership cost: $3) in the Roundhouse Exhibition Hall throughout the month of March. Additionally, please watch for FREE site-specific performances in Metro Vancouver. Information on these performances and all festival events are online at the VIDF website.
