Cara Siu is a movement artist and emerging choreographer and movement facilitator, engaged in exploring performance research and community dance. Her passion to share expression, physicality and imagination with audiences have fueled many diverse dance experiences. After acquiring her modern dance training in Vancouver, BC at Simon Fraser University, she continued her dance training in the US, winning scholarships to both Jacob's Pillow Festival in Massachusetts and Lewitzky Dance Company in Los Angeles.
Upon returning to Vancouver, she became captivated by the emerging form of dance theatre and apprenticed with Lee Eisler of Jumpstart Performance. As a collaborator/performer, she has contributed to the creation of dance theatre productions for Gambling Soles, Donna Redlick Dance Theatre, Link Dance Foundation and Raven Spirit Dance.
In 2004, Cara participated in workshops, labs and coaching at Implustanz as a DanceWeb scholarship student. There, she expanded her movement interests to contact improvisation and in recent years furthered the scope to mixed ability, site-specific performance, rehearsal directing and aerial dancing.
