Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) continues streaming performances online until June 4th.
Next up, VIDF presents Company 605’s Brimming from April 29 – May 1. With a multi-camera approach this stream takes viewers inside the dance, created and performed by Company 605 co-director Josh Martin. Brimmingis a new solo investigating the body as a container: a rigid frame holding in and concealing its stored inner contents. The piece imagines the body as a hollow interior space continuously shaped and reshaped, filled and emptied, and inhabited through different states. A performer trapped inside his own form, the dance is a meeting of both the seen and unseen – the invisible contents that slosh up against the sides, pushing against the outer surface from beneath, and occasionally leaking under its pressure. Brimming explores this shape we are in, how it holds us, and what might eventually spill out when the walls begin to bend.
Company 605’s Brimming streams April 29 & 30 at 7pm, May 1 at 4pm PST. Following the April 30th presentation, join VIDF for a Q&A with Josh Martin. Find more details about Company 605 and register in advance for tickets, free/by-donation, at vidf.ca/company605
