Over two consecutive weekends, the 19th ROMP! FESTIVAL OF DANCE premieres Joshua Beamish's solo collection LONE WOLF; unleashes Meagan O’Shea's Occupy-inspired WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER HERO; features an international cast of dancers and writers in our returning series PRESENT/TENSE 10 (topped off with CAKE ON THE STAGE); introduces a new, free outdoor program ROMP! IN THE PARK in Beacon Hill Park; plus we'd like you to meet our 2016 ROMP! Artist-in-Residence Hyoseung Ye from Seoul, South Korea.
ROMP! Audience favourite JOSHUA BEAMISH returns to the Metro Studio to premiere LONE WOLF, an evening of solos with choreography by Beamish, Vancouver’s Noam Gagnon of The Holy Body Tattoo/Company Vision Impure and Toronto’s Ame Henderson of Public Recordings. Each work explores facets of Beamish’s persona, both public and private, to remix his own image and to superimpose creative perspectives.
