contingency_12bCome join us in the park for Dusk Dances as part of the Dancing on the Edge Festival 2010!

Strathcona High, Class of ’56
Choreography & Performance: The Contingency Plan

Strathcona High Class of ’56 explores the sexual repression of the 1950‘s, taking the audience on an emotionally tumultuous journey. This quirky piece introduces you to three teenage girls, giddy with excitement as they arrive at their high school prom. These three characters are emotionally enthusiastic, vulnerable and volatile. As the piece unfolds, the young women abandon their aspirations of love, embracing a fierce independence with reckless abandon.

Show Dates and Times: Queen Elizabeth Park, July 14-17, 7pm. This is a FREE event!

Also performing:
Host: Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg
Meredith Kalaman
Zhenya Cerneacov
Sylvie Bouchard
& David Danzon

Dancing on the Edge 2010

Posted on July 3rd, 2010

Please join The Contingency Plan for EDGE One at the Dancing on the Edge Festival 2010.

Choreography: Justine A. Chambers
Performance: Vanessa Goodman & Jane Osborne

This duet is inspired by the literary term referring to a pause that breaks up a line of verse in order to convey meaning. Caesura creates an intricate moving conversation punctuated by the many ways we take pause in our daily lives.

Caesura was commissioned by Jane & Vanessa in 2009. It was first presented by SYIDA in June 2009 in Whitehorse, Yukon, and following that, here in Vancouver at the Roundhouse in Oct 2009.

It will be performed at DOTE as part of EDGE One, together with work by Science Friction and The Chimera Project.
