Dance Films January 25th

The InterdepenDance Collective invites the public, as well as disability and dance communities, to join us for:

Integrated Dance Films

Saturday January 25th, 2020

 2:30pm – 4:30pm

Free!

At FLUX Media Gallery

821 Fort Street, on the ancestral land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən People.


About the event

The event is to introduce the public to mixed-ability dance and dance from disability perspectives.

As well, the event is a chance for dancers who experience disability to come together and experience the work of colleagues in other cities.

Films are currently being selected, but will likely include work by Alice Sheppard, Danielle Peers, All Bodies Dance Project, and Embrace Arts.

Please do not use any scented or fragranced products before coming to the event.

Accessibility

The event has access to fully accessible washrooms next door at the Victoria Disability Resource Centre.

The Flux Media Gallery entrance is level off of Fort Street. The door is not automatic, so there will be a volunteer near the door.

Please request ASL, captioning and describing by January 20th:
-A Sign Language Interpreter is confirmed.
-Captioning and transcribing are confirmed.
-We are aiming to select films that already have a described version available. Live describing for the remaining films will be provided by volunteers because local audio describers are not available.

To volunteer

There are volunteer roles available: greeter (and available to assist with the door), describing team, childcare, set up and clean-up. Please sign up on the RSVP form.
