Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre

The Vancouver International Dance Festival (VIDF) is a social-profit, artist run organization dedicated to supporting and furthering the art of culturally diverse contemporary dance.

Each year the festival scours the globe, and its own backyard, to assemble a thrilling month of emotionally rich and intellectually stimulating dance expressions. In doing so, the festival functions as an important link between Vancouver and a vibrant, international community of artists, ensuring world-class contemporary dance will always have a place in the hearts and minds of Vancouver audiences.

“The contemporary works in the Roundhouse Series investigate the universal themes of connection and isolation, memory and immediacy, crisis and joy,” says Barbara Bourget, Co-Producer of VIDF. “We’ve selected an array of seasoned artists with diverse cultural backgrounds for this series. Their wealth of varied experiences and perspectives have produced poignant works that transcend our differences and unveil our common humanity through powerful physicality.”
