Village

the response.

Vancouver

Village is a short dance work that utilizes four dancers to portray a group of people who live by the sea and survive a storm. Inspired by the simplicity of rural communities and their intimate social interactions, Village is an intimate ode to the daily hum of life that asks what happens when a pastoral environment is interrupted. This rendition of Village promises to be the catalyst of a creation to be further developed for the response. The performers are a truly exciting group of young emerging dancers and all of them are currently working with or have worked with Amber and the response. via the company’s Apprentice Program.

Choreographer & Direction: Amber Funk Barton
Dancers: Antonio Somera, Andrew Haydock, Tess Tamura, Marcy Mills
