The Carnegie Dance Troupe acknowledges our dancing takes place
on the unceded traditional Territory of the Coast Salish People, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh
Since 2006 The Carnegie Dance Troupe has been an ongoing vehicle for people from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside community to participate in creative dance. Some have been involved in many previous projects, some are new participants. The principle supporting The Carnegie Dance Troupe is an absolute inclusivity.
Performances of The Carnegie Dance Troupe are created through processes of collaboration, seeking to connect us to our body, to our breath, to the energy of the earth, to each other and to our diverse communities.
Today you are witnessing a showing of their new work-in-progress, the beginning stages of a work to be premiered in 2016. Themes of this work-in-progress are: the flow of life and healing, and the investigation of gifts received and given through dancing together.
