The Dance Centre presents the Global Dance Connections series
Daina Ashbee
Pour

Thursday-Saturday February 1-3, 2018 8pm
Scotiabank Dance Centre
677 Davie St, Vancouver

A dark and devastating solo, Pour explores the vulnerability and strength of women, using the taboo subject of the menstrual cycle as a departure point and turning it into an object of painful beauty steeped in symbolism. The piece applies imagery from the seal hunt to boldly tackle complex questions about femininity, blood, and the loss of control, deploying the body and voice in an unflinching depiction of suffering and catharsis. Daina Ashbee has quickly become a prolific and prominent Canadian choreographer, whose work is rooted in her relation to the land, the environment and her ancestors. A BC native of Cree, Métis and Dutch heritage, she is now based in Montreal.

Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
