Senescence is a personal reflection into Olivia Shaffer’s caregiving journey, through her father’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Using movement and text, in collaboration with sound designer Alex Mah, the work aims to offer the audience a ceremonial performance, highlighting triumphs and heartaches in a collective embrace of our unavoidable impermanence. Tickets are free with a Vancouver International Dance Festival membership.
