Dancers Dancing (Vancouver)
The FINE LINE ~ twisted angels
Using movement, sound, and image veteran Vancouver choreographer Judith Garay examines how we perceive our internal and external worlds. Through ephemeral and sometimes transformative movement, interwoven with the music of Patrick Pennefather and video by Flick Harrison, Garay builds a study of sense and cognition that encompasses everything from addiction to hypnagogic hallucinations, and synesthesia in a profound and compelling work. The FINE LINE ~ twisted angels is a work grounded in personal experience that engages with the fragility of existence and risks a deep, dark journey to bring forth internal experience onto the stage.
Known for its passion and technical excellence, Dancers Dancing has been producing and touring full length works since its founding in 1999 under the artistic direction of Judith Garay. A former principal dancer of the Martha Graham Dance Company, and currently a member of the dance faculty at the Simon Fraser University School for the Contemporary Arts, Ms. Garay has choreographed more than 40 works performed in Canada, the USA, and Europe through more than thirty years of creation.
