AS A BODY is a site-specific community based work originally commission by the Kensington Market Street Festival. The work begins with a series of solos and duets that move around and activate different areas until eventually arriving at the
group grand finale. For this final section of the performance the professional dancers are joined by a group of local
volunteer performers. We have the pleasure of meeting and teaching a part of the work to a new community each time we perform it.
“I hadn’t danced in a long time, despite growing up dancing. I was nervous, but Jarrett and Jessie are so encouraging and fun, and it made me take dance classes again on my own!”AS A BODY Edmonton participant
