Welcome to the Brian Webb Dance Company’s 36th season! It is such a pleasure to be able to invite you to our most adventurous season ever. You will experience dance in its most intimate setting and dance created on a large scale. In all of it though, you will experience Canadian contemporary dance that tours abroad, that erases borders to create new genres, and dance that celebrates our experience as contemporary people living in a global world.
Dance isn’t about the body. It IS the body. All of us who feel our heartbeat know rhythm; that subtle movement of our heart defines life. Dance isn’t a metaphor, it is a basic human activity. In this season which recognizes the body as a keeper of experience and knowledge, we acknowledge that it is a most powerful tool of communication. All dance, whether serious or humorous, is a wonderful celebration of life… life in the present time.
Each dance may have multiple meanings and each of us experiences it in our own unique way. How we interpret a dance really depends so much on how its movements makes us feel. These unique interpretations at once celebrate our individuality and unite us in feeling… feeling our heartbeats.
Welcome to this amazing adventure.
