The 14th annual Vancouver International Dance Festival (March 7-29) features a wide array of performances and workshops with dancers originating from China, Spain, Germany, Japan, the United States and Canada. Over the last three weeks, the city of Vancouver has enjoyed stunning artistry in genres such as Kokoro, Butoh, Modern, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Ballet and Flamenco.

Currently running at the festival is “S’envolver”. Choreographed by Estelle Clareton of Creations Estelle Clareton, and performed in partnership with Montreal Danse, S’envoler is a comical piece about freedom and independence. During the dance, many of the dancers imitate the behaviour of birds. At one moment, dancers will break away from the flock and preoccupy themselves with some unknown distraction. The next moment, they try desperately to re-insert themselves into the flock. Throughout the play, the dancers encounter danger, challenges and new experiences, all of which they take in stride in their own amusing, bird-like way. (more…)

The Vancouver International Dance Festival–Isreal Galvan


Isreal Galvan is reputed to be one of the most accomplished and innovative flamenco dancers in the world, known for infusing traditional flamenco with contemporary techniques. He appeared at the Playhouse on March 22 & 23, 2014 as part of the Vancouver International Dance Festival.

They struggle together, evoking a power that is experienced by the audience as “almost unendurable.” As Galvan stepped into a square of light at the centre of the stage he bowed, as if to an invisible force, welcoming the spirit of Duende into the circle.
