Out of Studio III

By Mika Manning

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, dancers have been stuck at home, kept away from the studio and the stage. To document dance during this time, we asked three dancers/photographers to capture how they are finding inspiration within their walls and amung their furniture and worldly possessions.

Mika Manning is a freelance artist residing on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl ̓ _ilwətaɁɬ _(Tsleil Waututh) Nations, also known as Vancouver. Currently, Manning is working towards her bachelor in art, performance and cinema studies at Simon Fraser University. Over the years, she has become curious about how movement can be translated onto video and in photography.

Manning is the third of the three artists whose photography is featured in our July/August 2020 issue. Check out Marlowe Porter’s contribution here, and Alvin Collantes’s here.
