Artist-in-Residence: Olivia C. Davies
Gidaashi creates a swirling world of ephemeral images embodied by the dancer as she is possessed by the immeasurable force of fate. Moments of serene stillness are interrupted by the effects of a wind so powerful it can uproot homes, families, forests, and futures. Inspired by the haunting sounds of Symphony No. 3 by Henryk Górecki, the solo gives shape to the lamentations of a person removed. Featuring choreography by Olivia C. Davies, spoken word by Vuntut Gwitchin artist Melissa Frost, with mentorship from Raïna Von Waldenburg and sound design by Max Ulis. World premiere at Vancouver International Dance Festival on March 14, 2019 at 7pm.
