With spring in the air and vaccines rolling out, DanceHouse is thrilled to offer the urban video-mapping work (an outdoor video projection) titled REBO(U)ND. Coinciding with International Dance Day (April 29), this free outdoor public installation is the perfect thing to view on a spring evening’s walk. (Remember to wear a mask and stay socially distanced.)
A choreography of suspension and presented in silence, REBO(U)ND reveals and magnifies bodies on the verge of escaping gravity. Created and produced by choreographer Caroline Laurin-Beaucage, Montréal Danse, Lorganisme and HUB Studio, this is an exceptional project and a first in Vancouver! REBO(U)ND reveals the ephemeral moment when the dancer floats, between momentum and fall, between freedom and imbalance, while the body seems to defy space and time.
Projected on the wall of a tower in English Bay, REBO(U)ND will be offered to the gaze of all passers-by, bringing dance out of theatres and studios, and directly into the general public in a celebratory moment for artists, local businesses and neighbours to rebound from the past year’s challenges. The projection plays with perceptions, the notions of time, gravity, scale and space. A visual experience to live, to feel, REBO(U)ND is a vibrant tribute to dance, sharing the feelings of abandonment and freedom.
Following a long year of restrictions and many lives and projects put on hold, REBO(U)ND is a metaphor of our resilience, our capacity to bounce back from adversity. Another way art brings us together, looking forward to better days.
