Into the Tao is Full of Street Dance Soul

By Rachel Silver Maddock

Street dance is vibrant and brimming with talent in Vancouver. Into the Tao is a journey into a street dancer’s mind and the psychology of going into a dance battle. In this project, Kim Sato explores the reasons why street dancers put themselves through battles, when it can be incredibly stressful and physically demanding.

In fact, the chain of command stems from the client, down through the production company, to the choreographer and then to the dancer, the bottom of a chain fuelled by commerce above all else.
