Featuring the work of Canadian and International artists Daria Blum, Ella Cooper, Danièle Dennis, jes sachse, and Allanah Vokes. Intersections in Dance investigates dance-centered methodologies via contemporary art practices. By way of video, drawing, photography, and social media, each artist positions dance in different ways: as a culturally encoded practice, a form resistant to analysis and notation, an act of embodied self-expression, and as a vehicle of somatic repression. Intersections in Dance asks us – what does the dancing body mean? And what can we learn from the dancing body through the lens of contemporary art?
