In 2003 choreographer Andrea Nann collaborated with pottery artist and Chinese ink painter Wayne Ngan (Hornby Island), contemporary dance artists Alison Denham (Vancouver) and Kate Holden (Toronto) to create INK, a 40 minute dance performance inspired by Wayne Ngan's holistic and embodied creative process of "making the invisible visible". The piece was conceived on the beaches of Hornby Island, but has always been presented in theatrical venues. Now, 10 years later, the artists re-open the creation process during a 5-day artistic residency at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver. Here they will explore the deeper connections to nature and culture that are embedded in the work, excavating intersections where dance, visual art, classical landscapes and contemporary culture can interconnect and transform.
Please join the artists on July 25th from 7:30pm-9:00pm as they invite you to share their experience Inside Creation through dialogue, video, dance and ink painting.
