The Dance Centre presents the Global Dance Connections series:

Lesley Telford

Spooky Action at a Distance   

Thursday-Saturday April 20-22, 2017 at 8pm
Scotiabank Dance Centre
677 Davie St, Vancouver

Lesley Telford's choreography brings together a technically rigorous vocabulary and a thought-provoking approach, refined by her years dancing with Nederlands Dans Theater and creating for companies at home and abroad, most recently Ballet BC. Spooky Action at a Distance is inspired by Einstein's famous phrase referring to particles that are so closely linked, they share the same existence. A collaboration with poet Barbara Adler, this new interdisciplinary work uses interactive technology and extends the theory to human connections in our phenomenally interconnected world. The program also includes If, a trio based on Anne Carson's poem, and the duet My tongue, your ear, with text by Wislawa Szymborska.
