Calgary-based Davida Monk has been an influential figure on the Canadian dance scene for over three decades. A choreographer, performer, teacher and mentor, her repertoire of works finds inspiration in myth and literature, as well as the natural environment. This program celebrates her achievements with three pieces. Ashes for Beauty, specially remounted for seven Vancouver dancers, explores ideas of metamorphosis and transformation. Monk dances a new solo created for her by Alberta choreographer Helen Husak; and Paras Terezakis of Kinesis Dance somatheatro premieres a duet performed by Monk and Arash Khakpour, based on the classical Greek tragedy Antigone. Post-show artist talkback May 24. This performance includes haze.
