DanceHouse

SPECTACULAR. INSPIRING. INTERNATIONAL. COSMOPOLITAN. AUDACIOUS.

FOUNDED BY JIM SMITH AND BARB CLAUSEN, 2008

This season marks DanceHouse’s 10th anniversary with fi ve presentations from local, national, and international artists. There is so much to celebrate!

Up first will be the Western Canadian premiere of Morphed, the internationally acclaimed work by renowned Finnish choreographer Tero Saarinen. Next, DanceHouse celebrates Canada’s 150th with the world premiere of Wells Hill, a new work from Vancouver’s own emerging choreographer Vanessa Goodman. Toronto Dance Theatre honours its 50th anniversary with the retrospective program House Mix, showcasing five diverse works by choreographer Christopher House. And back by popular demand, Betroffenheit—an award-winning collaboration by Kidd Pivot Artistic Director and choreographer Crystal Pite and Electric Company Theatre Co-artistic Director Jonathon Young—returning once more to the DanceHouse stage following two international tours. Closing out the season, in a celebration of style and form, DanceHouse welcomes the New York tap sensation Dorrance Dance led by acclaimed choreographer Michelle Dorrance.

Each presentation offers opportunities to engage with the artists and their work through roundtable discussions, masterclasses, and more. Producer Jim Smith says, “It’s with great gratitude to everyone involved that I look forward to celebrating what we’ve collectively achieved and the next 10 years!”
