Our Story

Vazari Dance Projects (Vazari) focuses on collaborative approaches to movement-based projects.

Coordinated and curated by Creative Director Jessie Garon the company collaborates with critically acclaimed artists from a spectrum of mediums sharing a common sensibility and a desire to work collaboratively.

Since its inception in 2014, Vazari has grown to establish itself as a uniquely multidisciplinary company rooted in dance. At the core of Vazari is the confidence in the power of movement as a medium to expand what is possible. The work creates new possible worlds within which the spectator is encouraged to ignite empathy, curiosity and fight against mulishness.

Vazari Dance Projects bases itself in the belief that dance is a social act that can bring together diverse communities. VDP offers opportunities for audiences and artists to encounter and enrich each other through a collision of ideas and practices, fostering a fertile ground for innovative concepts through open communication.

Working in Uncertainty || MASTERCLASS

Led by Jessie Garon with support from cast

This hour long class will focus on finding new possibilities, speed, and power through connection to instinct. Within a largely improvisational structure, we will layer movement ideas and encourage ourselves to become overwhelmed while looking for playfulness, pleasure, effort and a sense of humour. Together we will be available to all possibilities, question our assumptions about what is possible, and surprise ourselves. We will connect to the energy of the group and cultivate a sense of community. This practise will generate a body that is a sensitive, generative, intelligent and responsive instrument, able to navigate a constantly shifting creative environment.

*This workshop is open to participants with or without previous movement experience.

  • This dance is both hypnotic and rousing at different moments as the two dancers fall smoothly in line with each other or when they run to and from each other, using their thick black boots to create rhythm and vibration throughout the dance.

  •  The pair attempt to communicate with each other with gestures, but it is the invisible link between them that really communicates, whether they are spinning away from or toward each other.
