Gathering Light - 10 min excerpt Dance AllSorts.mov

The Vancouver-based, Aboriginal contemporary dance society Raven Spirit Dance recently shared this ten-minute video excerpt of Gathering Light. Choreographed by Artistic Director Michelle Olson, this work for three dancers is performed here by Daina Ashbee, Julia Carr and Starr Muranko at one of New Works’ Dance Allsorts events in April 2011. The company’s website offers this insight into the work: “From seed to flower, from girl to woman, from structures that do not support our own truths to ceremonies that support our full bloom, Gathering Light explores the impulses rooted in our bodies and that travel through us to find the light.”Be sure to check out the Summer Annual 2011 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an item on Michelle Olson and Raven Spirit Dance.
