Calgary dance collective, ReLoCate, presents THE EXPERIMENT #3, an intimate evening of dance, conversation and improvisation, taking place at Mile Zero Dance
's Spazio Performativo on January 11 and 12.
ReLoCate is a group of Calgary-based mid-career professional artists working in the realm of contemporary dance and performance practices, and is comprised of Tania Alvarado, Marie France Forcier, Melanie Kloetzel, Linnea Swan, Rosanna Terracciano and Deanne Walsh. Throughout their own individual careers to date, the members have already accumulated impressive national and international presentation experiences, collectively including the Canada Dance Festival (Ottawa), Prairie Dance Circuit (Alberta/Saskatchewan/Winnipeg), Dancing on the Edge (Vancouver), DanceWorks (Toronto), Festival Trans-Ameriques (Montreal), Dusk Dances (Toronto), Movement Research at Judson Church (New York), Bienal de Flamenco (Seville), Flamenco Empirico (Barcelona) and Fluid Festival (Calgary).
“ReLoCate began in 2013 as a collaborative experiment among dance artists invested in uncovering innovative and interdisciplinary methods of art-making. Currently, with the addition of new artists, we’ve begun a process of collective re-imagining, aiming to find new collaborative partners in the larger arts community, and — perhaps more importantly — new invigorating and more sustainable possibilities for sharing performance and creating artistic exchange among artists throughout Alberta”, says Kloetzel, an original founding member of the collective. “We want to create long-term opportunities and a system of support for dance artists who are choosing to continue to dedicate themselves to a life in dance — and specifically in this province. The community here is small and its artists need support.”
THE EXPERIMENT #3 includes a new solo created and performed by Terracciano, a solo created by Swan for Forcier, and an excerpt of a new duet created and performed by Alvarado and Kloetzel. Joining in the program are Edmonton’s Gerry Morita, Artistic Director of Mile Zero Dance, and independent artist Amber Borotsik, each presenting solo creations. The evening will culminate in a group improvisation between all the performers with special musical guest, multi-instrumentalist Chris Dadge, of local label and experimental concert series, Bug Incision.
ReLoCate’s THE EXPERIMENT #3 is made possible with the support of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
