Hosted by Kristen Lewis, sponsored by ArtSpring, the Salt Spring Arts Council, and the SSI Library.

During August, ArtSpring’s residency programme welcomes some exciting contemporary dance companies to Salt Spring – all Vancouver-based leaders in the field. Local dance artist Kristen Lewis will host public talks with some of these dance artists. The talks will touch on many questions, including: How do leaders in the field of contemporary dance relate their work to broader concerns in the world of contemporary art? How do they relate their art practice to some of the most pressing concerns in life “beyond the art world?” Why does dance matter, perhaps now more than ever? Why should non-dancers care?

Sunday Aug 7 5-6pm Tiffany Tregarthen (Out Innerspace Dance Theatre)

Monday Aug 22 5-6 pm Shay Kuebler (Shay Kuebler/Radical System Art)

Monday Aug 29 5-6pm Jennifer Mascall (MascallDance)

Each Talk takes place: 5pm-6pm at the Library (programme room)
