POP UP DANCES: 3 environments, 1 dance

Ottawa Dance Directive choreographer, Yvonne Coutts creates a new work that fully embraces the ideas at the heart of CDF 2013: Changing Perspectives. The six dancers from the ODD IN House Company, joined by senior students of The School of Dance Professional Contemporary Programme, will perform a new work in several locations around the city. In a true exploration of site-specific performance, the location plays an integral role, informing the interpretation of content with each new site. By incorporating the changing environmental conditions of light, sound and space, the work reveals new insights with each new home.
