Canada's longest running contemporary dance festival, Dancing on the Edge, will be happening July 8 -17, 2021. The 2021 festival will feature an exciting and dynamic lineup including online and onstage live EDGE performances. This year's DOTE promises to once again deliver high calibre, challenging and cutting-edge dance featuring innovative and spellbinding works.

In celebration of our 33 rd Annual DOTE, the festival will include a presentation of over thirty online and live stage performances featuring artists from across Canada. On offer will be some specially curated digital programming with recorded online performances, premieres of dance films, dance discussions, outdoor live performances in the Firehall's Courtyard (for very limited audiences with safety precautions in place) and theatre performances with limited capacity, if permitted (Firehall Arts Centre Theatre).

The festival will also present works from acclaimed Vancouver artists including Wen Wei Dance, Radical System Art/Shay Kuebler, Rachel Meyer, Lesley Telford/Inverso Productions, and many more. During the festival audiences will be able to experience scheduled performances both online and live onstage.
