RECOLLECT (a working title)

October 28, 2018

Goldcorp Centre for the Arts - SFU Woodwards

Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre

The Carnegie Dance Troupe acknowledges that our dancing takes place on the unceded Territory of the Coast Salish People; Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh

Since 2006 the principle supporting The Carnegie Dance Troupe is absolute inclusivity. Performances are created through a process of collaboration, seeking to connect us to our body, to our breath, to the energy of the earth, to each other and our diverse communities.

Exploring themes through dance, music, poem and film, this work-in-progress weaves together new choreographic directions with The Carnegie Dance Troupe’s repertoire.

Choreography - Mireille Rosner and The Carnegie Dance Troupe

Workshop Leader - Mireille Rosner

Workshop Assistant & Performer - Fiona Koski

Mentor - Karen Jamieson

Music Leader - Mike Richter

Musicians – Anthony McNab Favel (Cree), Laryssa Marie Kuypers (Cowichan), Cindy Fedora, Michel Vles


In memory of Sarah Good (1948-2018)
Sarah was with us for many years sharing her gifts of drum and song.
Her spirit and contributions to the group have enriched us and we hold her in high esteem.
