Donna Redlick Dance

Donna Redlick Dance presents
Blood from Stone
November 30 & December 1, 2018
Scotiabank Dance Centre

Inspired by past and present stories of Vancouver’s historic Blood Alley, Blood from Stone is an evocative and haunting new contemporary dance work by Vancouver choreographer Donna Redlick. Legend holds that executions and hangings took place in the alley and that buckets of blood spilled down the cobblestones from the alley’s butcher shops. Today the alley continues to ride upon these somewhat fabricated stories creating an energy that invites us to bring forward our darker shadow selves. What is partly a historical fiction has become a conceived ‘truth’ that affects the alley’s current day actions. Choreographed by Donna Redlick and performed by Salome Nieto, Alisoun Payne, Olivia Shaffer, and Cara Siu.
