Local dance organization Dancers Dancing and SFU Woodward’s cultural programs are partnering to bring the world premiere of The Fine Line ~ twisted angels to Vancouver.

The Fine Line ~ twisted angels explores in movement, sound and image how we experience, perceive, relate to and react to both our internal and external worlds. Ephemeral, sometimes transformative, the moments between perceiving, sensing, and cognition create a rich tapestry of somatic images. The work engages with the fragility of our existence and risks the deep and dark journeys necessary to project the internal experience directly onto the stage.

Since 1999, Dancers Dancing has mounted productions both in Vancouver and on tour. The company is known for its passion and technical wizardry as well as for reaching diverse audiences. The press has called the company “…truly exciting… Bursting with energy from the moment the curtains open, this powerhouse of a show was a delight from beginning to end…”
