Vancouver International Vertical Dance Summit


  • Guinness Tower Vancouver (map)

A six day international event open to dancers,

circus aerialists, riggers and technicians

The public is invited to attend a stimulating concurrent symposium

of free performances, roundtables, artist talks, and dance films

Seven international guest artists from Italy, France, Ireland, Wales, England, Croatia and Vancouver will be teaching workshops throughout the week.

The VIVDS training intensive offers opportunity for vertical dance practitioners to expand their aerial technique, vocabulary, share knowledge and develop networks with artists across the seas. New practitioners with athletic ability are welcome to participate in various workshops.

The workshops will be held in different settings within Vancouver. Venues (pending final approvals) include a short outdoor wall, an indoor atrium, a studio theatre, old growth trees and a tall office tower.

The event will culminate in a public showcase of “The Gathering Flock” on June 15, featuring the week's Tall Tower exploration.
