Join Vazari as we focus on women rebuilding their lives both through our upcoming creation Nest (working title) and Women's Habitat.
Working on this new creation inspired us to find a charity that directly supports women rebuilding their lives and to raise money to support them. Women's Habitat offers a safe, confidential location with all the services a woman needs to make a new life for herself and her children through group support or individual counselling as well as their shelter. Come out for an evening of paintings by Marilu Rivera, get a sneak peak at what we've been up to, and learn how Women's Habitat is changing lives.
April 8th from 7 pm to 9 pm
Located at Artscape Youngplace - 180 Shaw Street in Studio #103
Tickets: CASH ONLY at the door by donation (suggested $20)
Beer & Wine available for purchase. All proceeds go towards Women's Habitat

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.
