“The original impulse was embarrassment,” confessed Jim Smith. He was explaining how he and co-producer Barb Clausen came to build DanceHouse, Vancouver’s new large-scale contemporary dance series, which gets underway this Friday with the presentation of Les ecailles de la memoire, by Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Urban Bush Women and Compagnie Jant-Bi from Senegal.

“Whenever we had conversations with colleagues in other parts of the country,” Smith said, “all we’d hear was: Oh poor you, in Vancouver. The onus has always been on you to get on a plane, to go somewhere else, if you wanted to see contemporary dance of a certain scale. Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa all have ongoing series of this kind, and we were very aware of what was lacking as a result of not having this stimulus in the community.” Get all of the information.
