Dance Victoria’s third annual Choreographic Lab is July 22 to August 3, 2019 led by choreographers Justine A. Chambers and Susan Elliott. Chambers and Elliott will mentor three choreographers that have participated in previous labs at Dance Victoria: Victoria-based choreographers Kelly Hobson and Angela Mousseau and Vancouver’s Mahaila Patterson-O’Brien. They will work with dancers selected through an audition process: Ellie Bishop, Isak Enquist, Samantha Krystal, Donaldo Nava, Jared Middleton, Larryssa Yolland, and apprentices Jacky Halaburda and Noah McKimm.

“We’re thrilled to have Kelly, Angela and Mahaila return to deepen their experiences, building on skills and tools they acquired in previous labs, and this time under the mentorship of Justine and Susan as Artistic Directors,” explains Dance Victoria Executive Producer Stephen White.

Each day the choreographers are assigned a creative task in the morning. They spend the afternoon with dancers from the company making material based on the task and they show their work at day’s end. The public is invited to see the works during the second week and for a final showing on Saturday, August 3. Visit Dance Victoria’s Facebook page for details closer to the date…
