Curating Time

Plastic orchid factory’s i miss doing nothing By Rachel Silver Maddock

In a large white studio, an immersive dance installation is going on, drawing audience members (or participants) into a space distinct from yet porous with the street below. To mark the ten-year anniversary of plastic orchid factory, performers and directors Natalie LeFebvre Gnam and James Gnam designed a unique movement retrospective framed by the present – i miss doing nothing.

Dancing on the Edge: Festival of Contemporary Dance By Eury Chang

Since 1988, the Dancing on the Edge festival (DOTE) has been presented at the Firehall Arts Centre and a growing number of partner venues throughout Vancouver. As the city’s longest-running contemporary dance festival, DOTE serves the professional dance milieu through an eclectic program consisting of full-length, mixed bill and site-specific dance works. This year a mixture of emerging, established, local and visiting dancers took to the stage and, like previous years, there seemed to be no particular or overarching aesthetic. However, it would be safe to say that innovative, experimental and works-in-progress foregrounded the entire event. I ventured out to view a handful of such works, which left me with the some lasting impressions.
