About us

BIO

Dance Troupe Practice is a movement-based performance collective founded in 2007 in Vancouver, Canada. We produce interdisciplinary works that combine dance, sound, voice, video and installation. Our works are grounded on a philosophy that explores the border zones between dance and life. Within a safe environment, members are welcome to bring their personal life experience to the dance space, and release them through movement. Our focus is on the quality of our movements and the intention underlying our dances. We are committed to the deep exploration of embodiment, movement inquiry and to each individual's dancing body. Dance Troupe believes that powerful new dance works emerge from the commitment to a collective process and each member's personal body communication, without necessarily following a rigid palette of dance techniques.
