I CARE WHAT YOU THINK
Inside the world of I CARE WHAT YOU THINK, failure becomes beautiful, movement becomes honest, performance becomes transparent, ugliness becomes necessary, and our wishes, both those of the audience and performers, become the heart of the work. In this performance, we ask if we can be better together? The artists oscillate between observation and action. They make choices. Wish for things. In considering a perfect dance, they recognize that it is not the pursuit of an unattainable ideal that drives them, but a search for connection – personal and universal — and one that is beautifully flawed. The dance, like the choices we make everyday, exists in the spaces between, around and within us all. We act alone and we act together.
Created & performed by James Gnam/plastic orchid factory + Vanessa Goodman/Action at a Distance + Jane Osborne + James Proudfoot. Produced by plastic orchid factory. Presentation partner Boca del Lupo at Performance Works.

November 20-24, 2019 at Performance Works
Translations is an immersive performance for small audience groups created by All Bodies Dance Project in collaboration with VocalEye. Accessible to both blind and sighted audience members, Translations is experienced through the sound of movement, the sensation of air moving, and images drawn in ones imagination from descriptive language.
The piece explores the tools of live description with dance created specifically for the “non-visual senses.” Translations invites diverse audiences to consider their own perceptions and the ways they typically access art and the world around. The work is choreographed and performed by a team of artists (with and without disabilities) who researched alongside artistic consultants from the blind community.
Discussion and food to follow.

Translations is made possible with funding through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program
