8th Annual SCDS Dance Residency Performance: Flow

Exploring the themes of art, science and nature, The Sunshine Coast Dance Society will be presenting FLOW, an intimate collection of original contemporary dance works at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse Saturday evening September 17, and Sunday at 2PM, September 18.

This year’s Dance Society Artist in Residence, Gail Lotenberg from Link Dance Foundation in Vancouver, will be performing “Testing Perception” fresh from its premier performance on Gabriola island. Testing Perception is a new work culminating years of research on the similarities and differences between how artists and scientists experiment. Acclaimed Link dancers, Darcy McMurray and Kirsten Wiren will accompany Gail through this explorative piece featuring confident and emotionally vibrant choreography.

Guest artist Sylvain Brochu will also be performing a new piece, choreographed by Lotenberg. This work currently titled “Earth”, will feature the “triple threat” genius of Brochu’s ability to sing, act and dance. It is a romp and a reflective journey in a single package. Local musician Nir Blu composed the uplifting and heartfelt musical score.
