Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) proudly announces its captivating 2017 program, showcasing the magnificent diversity of the contemporary dance canon with three weeks of endlessly enriching performances, workshops, and dance activities from March 1- 25, 2017, at various venues throughout Vancouver.
The VIDF presents a broad spectrum of dance presentation ranging from the slow introspection of butoh to the dynamic precision of ballet. We have mixed street dance b-boys with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in works that surprise and challenge our audiences.
The stellar festival lineup includes anticipated performances by San Francisco’s internationally-lauded company Alonzo King LINES Ballet; Canadian premieres from Japan’s Dairakudakan and Denmark’s Kitt Johnson, west coast premieres from Toronto’s Kaeja d’Dance, and Montreal’s Compagnie Virginie Brunelle; world premieres from Vancouver’s-own Kinesis Dance, Karen Jamieson & Margaret Grenier, Rob Kitsos/Jane Osborne/Kim Stevenson, among many others.
