The VIDF presents a broad spectrum of dance presentation ranging from the slow introspection of butoh to the dynamic precision of ballet. We have mixed street dance b-boys with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in works that surprise and challenge our audiences.
International enfants terribles like Jérôme Bel from France and Thomas Lehman from Germany along with butoh legends, including Yoshito Ohno, Natsu Nakajima, Koichi Tamano, and Akaji Maro have graced our stages.
The stellar festival lineup includes anticipated performances by San Francisco’s internationally-lauded company Alonzo King LINES Ballet; a world premiere from Japan’s Dairakudakan; a Canadian premiere from Denmark’s Kitt Johnson; west coast premieres from Toronto’s Kaeja d’Dance and Montreal’s Cie Virginie Brunelle; and world premieres from Vancouver’s-own Kinesis Dance, Karen Jamieson & Margaret Grenier, Jane Osborne & Kim Stevenson, among many others.
