Body to Body is a 2 year research project that used the body as an “investigative device” to get to the essence of specific Karen Jamieson choreographic works. Karen was, and continues to be, interested to see if working with young artists today could reveal the power of myth in these dances to be both timeless and absolutely contemporary.
As part of our 35th Anniversary celebrations and in partnership with The Dance Centre, we would like to share with you a selection of the research conducted by these fantastic artists: Amber Funk Barton, Lisa Gelley, Meredith Kalaman, Josh Martin, Darcy McMurray.
Body to Body is part of our ongoing Legacy Program; of passing on a body of work through mentorship, work with scholars, and the creation of the KJD archive. This project was supported by Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, City of Vancouver.
