DUCK DANCES @ DUSK DANCES can be seen, with three other works reflective of the landscape,  in a series long associated with Dancing on the Edge called Dusk Dances, one of Vancouver’s loveliest summer pastimes.

The series, curated by dance artist Sylvie Bouchard, has become a national treasure, presented in a number of Canadian locales annually.  Vancouver’s 2015 presentation includes two works by Vancouver artists.

The other local work is  THREE-TONE² a trio exploration of movement by Karissa Barry with Lara Barclay and Kirsten Wicklund.
