On Tour

Each year Made in BC – Dance on Tour sends one to three contemporary dance companies on tour around the Province of BC by connecting BC dance artists with our network of presenters. While touring the Made in BC network dance artists act as an ambassador for the art form and open up a world of possibility for those who experience their work. For this reason, Made in BC touring artists are expected to participate in a wide variety of outreach activities, coordinated by the presenters in their respective communities.

Glory

Inspired by the epic battles of childhood and a passion for action films, Glory examines the complexities of violent behaviour and its glorification in our media-drenched culture. Through a cinematic lens, with first-person video material, Glory takes the audience through multiple images and expressions on the amplification of experience and violence in society.
A company of 6 bold and dynamic performers create a physical essay around numerous themes of glorification. Creating rich and dark imagery through visceral and impactful choreography, Glory pushes the audience to question the purpose and reasoning of violent material in society.
