Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre

Collision is an interdisciplinary, multi-levelled dance production, reflective of Vancouver's history. It is site specific to the Roundhouse once the western terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway and now a creative centre for people of all cultures and ages. Created by an extraordinary team of award winning Vancouver artists of varying disciplines, Collision collides professional contemporary dancers with multicultural and multigenerational community dancers, composers, photographers, filmmakers, designers and cultural figures. Collision explores the collisions of past and present and the historical collision of European and Asian immigrants and First Nations and their different relationships to the railway.
